This 2009 Pinot Noir is a blend that incorporates the broad expression of five very distinct vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills, Yamhill-Carlton District, and Dundee Hills.  Soils range from the diverse set of volcanic and sedimentary soils each of these AVAs are known for.  In addition a broad selection of Pinot Noir clones are utilized to achieve a broad palette of aromas, textures and flavors, along with a small amount of whole cluster fermented fruit to add to the layers of complexity.  2009 was a warmer than average vintage, but this wine retains balance and vibrancy along with the elegance, complexity and expression of place that we cherish in our Oregon Pinot noirs
