Winemaker Notes
The nose opens with luscious threads of a juicy tart and baking spice, continuing on to a generosity of red fruit on the palate. Bramble and cocoa linger on the finish, echoing notes of fresh marionberry and shortbread as it fades.

92 rating Wine Spectator
“Fragrant and elegantly structured, with fresh violet, raspberry and orange peel accents that glide agilely toward refined tannins.”

TASTING NOTES FROM WI TES FROM WINEMAKER
This wine represents a pure expression of what makes the
Dundee Hills unique; a mosaic from our estate, this wine is a mix

Oregon Pinot Noir with notes of dried Rainier cherry, dark
chocolate, and flint on the nose. The palate bursts with splashes
of blueberry, citrus rind, and plush tannin, ending in a seamless
descent of cherry tart and baking spice. Share this wine on a
Thursday evening to cheers the little wins in life. Drink now
through 2030.
VINTAGE OVERVIEW
The 2021 growing season was warmer than average in the
Willamette Valley, producing beautifully ripe fruit with vibrant
flavors. A dry spring led to lingering rain showers during bloom,
which reduced the yield in some blocks. Summer temperatures
tapered off prior to harvest, with warm days and cool nights, which
allowed the fruit to ripen at an even and slower pace. Quick yet
seemingly smooth, harvest started on August 23 with little to no
breaks until we finished on September 24. The resulting wines are
balanced with focused flavors, stunning fruit, gorgeous vibrancy,
and incredible aging potential.
