Sourced exclusively from 15 acres of Pinot Noir from the first plantings at the Estate vineyard in the Salem Hills, Founder Jim Bernau planted these vines using a Christmas tree planter pulled behind his 33-horsepower tractor in 1983.
On the Nose: Deep garnet colored in the glass, the wine opens with a nose of bramble fruit, plum, herbs and graphite notes.
On the Palate: Showcasing concentration, the palate is packed with flavors of red and black fruit framed by cedar, dark chocolate and cinnamon spice. The highly-structured, persistent 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, smoked salmon, filet mignon, mushroom risotto, dishes featuring native Oregon truffles and cured or smoked meats.
