The 2017 Estate Pinot Noir expresses the terroir of our three vineyards — the original planting by Founder Jim Bernau at the winery in the Salem Hills, Tualatin Estate planted by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller in the foothills of the Coastal Range and Elton planted by Dick and Betty O'Brien on the east face of the Eola-Amity Hills.
This wine exemplifies the Willamette Valley style opening with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, florals and earth to create an elegant bouquet. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and offers flavors of cherry, orange spice, dried herbs, bergamot and cedar around a frame of soft tannins and balancing acidity.
Food Pairings: This wine will pair beautifully with classic Pinot Noir dishes including Oregon lamb, steelhead, duck, pork, mushrooms and aged cheeses.
Peak Drinkability: 2019-2025.
