Expressing the terroir of our three estate vineyards — the original planting by Founder Jim Bernau in the Salem Hills, Tualatin Estate planted by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller in the foothills of the Coastal Range and Elton Vineyard planted by Dick and Betty O'Brien in the Eola-Amity Hills.
On the Nose: This wine exemplifies the classic "Willamette Valley style" with aromas of black cherry, rich spices of clove and anise, and savory herbs and earth.
On the Palate: Medium-bodied, round and juicy, the palate offers flavors that mirror aromas with the addition of raspberry puree and clove and concludes with bright acidity and integrated tannins.
Food pairings: This wine will pair beautifully with traditional Pinot Noir dishes including Oregon lamb, duck breast with fruit compote, herb-crusted pork tenderloin, cedar plank grilled salmon, recipes with mushrooms or earthy truffles and aged cheeses.
