"Fresh red and dark cherries are framed in aromas of fine-ground baking spice here. The palate has a very smooth, refined feel with long, silky tannins, swirling around a core of fresh, red-cherry and berry flavor. Their finest release under this estate label. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
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 soft and supple, with dark cherry flavors balanced by a delicate tension from the tannins a classic representation of the Dundee Hills.

Our LEED Gold and LIVE certified winery combines progressive, environmentally-friendly design with gentle, traditional winemaking practices that minimize our environmental impact, making us one of the premiere sustainable wineries in the Pacific Northwest, and the first LEED Gold Certified winery in the world.
We pick, process, ferment and age each individual section of fruit separately before blending. Our gravity flow technology offers a gentler approach to transferring the wine from tank to barrel, as well as greatly reduces the amount of energy required for wine production.
Our winery produces wines that are elegant, showing ripe red to darker fruits as well as earthy qualities. Our grape varieties, age of the vine, location, and density bring an amazing diversity of flavors to our wines. They are beautifully textured and layered with fine, silky tannins. Vintage can change the expression of our wines, but never overpower their character.
"I strive to make wine that exemplifies the uniqueness of the vineyard and reflect the vintage with balance and elegance. Our Pinot Noir characteristically expresses a combination of red to darker fruits, spice, and fine-grain tannins. The volcanic soil, elevation, exposure, and weather of our Dundee Hills site all combine to create the perfect conditions for growing cool-climate wine grapes."
