It's hard to find a Pinot that reflects its place, is farmed Biodynamically, and offers such complexity at this price point. Made to drink now, as your "go to" wine, but you'll feel like you're drinking a special occasion bottle.
Rosso is a distinctive red blend that is the Marchesi family’s homage to their Italian heritage. This is reminiscent of a hearty Italian blend, yet with an Oregon twist. Rosso is never the same wine twice.
Our Reserve Pinot is a barrel selection from the best vineyards on the estate, with an emphasis on strength, depth and elegance. The 2014 Reserve brings more intensity but is still elegant from the native yeast fermentation.
Aromas of Kirsch, tobacco, spice, a hint of jalapeño and a subtle whiff of bay leaf guide the senses to the palate of pomegranate, cran-cherry cocktail, cigar box and exotic coriander. This complex wine develops over time.
Occasionally we find vineyards that are truly special and we purchase their fruit. The Keeler Family farms a 25 acre, certified-Biodynamic vineyard, offering fruit that is a lovely reflection of the Eola-Amity Hills terroir.
Grown on the highest part of the estate vineyard, the roots of the Pinot Noir vines from which this wine is made dig deep into volcanic soil. This provides richness and complexity along with age-worthy grip. This is one for the cellar.
The trellising for the Pinot Noir vines in the Graham's Block produces clusters with small berries, allowing for more concentrated flavors with deeper red fruit notes. Despite a cool vintage, this wine is robust and complex.
The Parsons' Ridge site is on a saddle of the vineyard where the Pinot Noir vines face two different directions, resulting in numerous expressions of the grapes. We ferment lots separately then finesse and blend for the final wine.
Intensely aromatic, with a nose of tropical flowers, ripe kiwi and melon, the silky soft palate is brimming with rose petals, pink grapefruit, mango and white nectarine then finishes on a high, clean note of bright key lime.
Our 2015 Pinot Gris is a lovely example of the great balance that we can achieve in the Northern Willamette Valley with this grape; stone and citrus fruits envelop the palate, finishing with a distinctive tropical note.
We make our Riesling in a variety of styles and this one, with just a hint of sweetness, is perfectly balanced with nice acidity. It's very versatile, great on its own or paired with a variety of foods.
