It’s medium-bodied and silky with oodles of ripe black and red fruits accented by earth and spice with a bit of that saltiness coming through. It’s got a firm frame of very fine, grainy tannins and gobs of mouthwatering acidity, finishing long. 640 cases produced."


TASTING NOTES
The most easy-going and approachable of all their Pinot Noirs, the “Select” is a moderately priced, estate grown wine and a worthy accompaniment to a casual meal of salmon, lamb or wild game.

THE WINE
When Mother Nature offers a bountiful year, theyroutinely bottle this entry level Pinot Noir. As the name implies, the “Select” is a selection of barrels representing all the vineyard blocks on the farm at the discretion of the winemaker.

THE WINERY
Doug Tunnell, owner and winemaker of Brick House Vineyards, spent seventeen years as a foreign correspondent for CBS television news before returning to his native Oregon to become one of the state’s preeminent winemakers. In 1990, he bought 40 acres on the Chehalem Ridge. Today, 30 acres are currently under vines, and the winery is a 100% estate producer, growing all of their own fruit and making all of the wine on site. The vineyards have been certified organic for 25 years and are also certified Biodynamic by Demeter, a fact that Doug feels demonstrates his dedication to growing and making the best wines the land can offer.
