2019 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Our Hare vineyard is a high elevation site with shallow soils, which creates wines with bright fruit and fresh acidity. We blended it with fruit from three other vineyards that produce darker, richer pinot noir, giving this wine balance and layers of complexity, resulting in fruit with excellent acidity and flavors of bright tart cherries, with earthy undertones. We use 30% whole cluster fermentation, a blend of vineyard specific yeasts, and fermented for 21-days on skins. Barrel aged in 15% new oak for 10 months, in a combination of French and Oregon Oak.
