The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Foley Family Estate, Doe Ridge and select sites throughout the Willamette Valley AVA. The Foley Family Estate Vineyard encompasses 110 acres nestled in the Red Hills of Dundee. The Doe Ridge Estate, purchased and developed in 2005, is a 90-acre site and considered one of the most innovative new vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Additional fruit from Erratic Oaks, Hyland and Prince Hill make up the final blend.
Varietal composition: 100% Pinot Noir. Primary fermentation over a period of 12-14 days. It was then pressed and transferred to barrel where malolactic fermentation occurred naturally. Aged for 9 months in 15% new French oak.
Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir showcases a beautiful ruby hue in the glass. Pleasant aromas of black cherry, red raspberry and hints of baking spice and rich dark chocolate. The palate exudes bright red fruit flavors of cherry and raspberries which are complemented by generous, fine-grained tannins and a rich yet focused palate. The finish is bright with perfectly balanced acidity. True to the Willamette Valley, this is a chef’s wine that will pair well with a variety of dishes.
