2015 Bernau Block Pinot Noir

2015 Bernau Block Pinot Noir

Sourced exclusively from 15 acres of Pinot Noir from the first plantings at the Estate Vineyard, Founder Jim Bernau planted these vines using a Christmas tree planter pulled behind his 33 horsepower tractor. He grafted the French clones 667 and 777 on a portion of the vines when they became available.

The warm growing season of 2015 resulted in perfectly ripe fruit with intense colors and opulent flavors.

On the Nose: Deep garnet colored in the glass, the wine opens with a complex nose of boysenberry, blackberry, plum, tobacco and cigar box notes.

On the Palate: Showcasing concentration and elegance, the flavors brighten on the full-bodied palate with red fruit framed by minerality, baking spice and menthyl. The well-structured, polished tannins and balancing acidity suggest this wine will further reward those with patience. 

Food Pairings: The Bernau Block is not just for casual sipping, this wine can stand up to rich gastronomic dishes. Enjoy with grilled Oregon lamb chops, cedar plank salmon, filet mignon, mushroom risotto, dishes featuring native Oregon truffles and charcuterie.

Peak Drinkability: 2018-2025.
