2017 Estate Vineyard (1.5L)

This is a two-barrel selection from our own Appassionata vineyard, which surrounds the winery on our little knoll in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. We have a great diversity of soil types and clones, giving us many options for the blending palette. This edition is a cuvée of the Pommard and Wädenswil clones, with a bit of Dijon 115. The 2017 vintage is vibrant and firm, with pure Pinot fruit over a stony structure. in spite of a very hot summer and the worrisome threat of wildfires, this vintage brought superby ripe fruit, the harvest itself was less frenzied than in most years, and the wines have turned our beautifully. After the fast start in summer, this respite gave the fruit time to finish ripening at a much slower pace, while retaining freshening acidity. This large format is perfect for holidays, celebrations, and any large get togethers!

 92 points Bright, tart red-berry fruits come with a salty tang, showing excellent focus and length. Tuck this away for another couple of years and it should blossom. Drink from 2022. —P.G.
