NEW!   Our first wine from outside of Washington is 100% Pinot Noir from Erratic Oaks Vineyard in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Pretty aromas of perfume, lavender, cherry, cinnamon and fresh cut grass are a precursor to flavors of cherry, raspberry, mushroom, olives, and green tea. The finish is juicy and long with medium tannins.

Tasting Notes
Our first wine from outside of Washington is 100% Pinot Noir from Erratic Oaks Vineyard in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Pretty aromas of perfume, lavender, cherry, cinnamon and fresh cut grass are a precursor to flavors of cherry, raspberry, mushroom, olives, and green tea. The finish is juicy and long with medium tannins.
Production Notes
Two clones were blended together for this Pinot: Clone 115 and Pommard. Brix (% sugar) at harvest was 23.0%. Our grapes were hand sorted and mechanically destemmed into a small bin for a two day cold soak to bring out flavors and color. Yeast and nutrients were added to start a 8 day active fermentation. The “free run” wine was pumped into barrels and the remaining skins were gently pressed to extract remaining wine into the barrels. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation which softens the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs with turkey, duck, or grilled salmon.
