WINE OVERVIEW
A mosaic of Pinot Noir from our estate, this wines is a mix of all our Pinot Noir clones. It saw mostly whole berry fermentation before aging, primarily in neutral French oak for almost a year. Driven with aromatics, the nose is bright, showing perfumed red fruits with undertones of earth and baking spice. The palate is soft and supple, with dark cherry flavors balanced by a delicate tension from the tannins — a classic representation of the Dundee Hills.

HARVEST OVERVIEW
On average, the 2018 vintage was a warmer and drier growing season. The vintage kicked off with an early bud break. June saw a cool, wet weather period during bloom, which put the vintage back on track for a traditional September harvest. Cluster sizes were smaller and more conducive to producing high-quality wines. The most notable climatic feature to the 2018 vintage, was our pleasantly dry and moderately warm harvest weather that continued into early November. This allowed us to pick based on ripe flavors and near-perfect natural acidity.
