Tasting notes

This pretty, elegant old world style Pinot Noir starts with a dusty cherry nose, plus a hint of cinnamon. On the palate, black cherry notes mix with a touch of damp earth, and grilled blood orange. The finish extends, very softly, showing ripe tannins. With bottle age the wine will evolve substantially.

Drink 2022-2030.

The Le Pavillon Vineyard site in the heart of the Red Hills AVA in Dundee, is our oldest and most unique vineyard. This 10 acre site boasts ownrooted Pommard clone Pinot Noir planted in 1972, along with Chardonnay and Riesling, making it one of the oldest surviving vineyards in the Willamette Valley. 

The soils are volcanic-based Jory with subsurface parent material of fractured basalt. The vines are not irrigated, forcing the roots to seek water and minerals deep underground. The average elevation is 617 feet, with a south facing 9.7% slope. 
This vineyard has been farmed organically since 1999 and biodynamic since 2006, supporting the production of some of the finest Pinot Noir that Oregon has to offer.

In 2017 the growing season returned to a more normal start, after three early years. Flowering and fruit set occurred during ideal conditions leading to a bigger than average crop. The growing season was quite warm. We pressed gently and fermented in small lots. The wines saw 15 months of aging in French oak barrels,
