Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is our foundation. We take pride in crafting unique wines with distinctive characteristics, even from the same vineyard. Our Pinot Nois are a great example to the diversity of our vineyards and winemaking. These wines also express our place in and culture. Each has a unique story and is crafted to reflect and accentuate terroir.
Crafted with fruit from a variety of growing sites, it is a reflection of the perfect terroir in the Willamette Valley. The warm, dry growing season led to ripe fruit and concentration that is perfectly balanced.
The Reserve is an expression of the highest-quality Pinot Noir from each vintage. Grapes from our best estate growing sites are fermented and aged separately and assembled after maturation.
Library Selection: The 2011 Reserve Pinot Noir was created through careful barrel selection, mostly from block 9 on our estate vineyard. A little young at time of release with some astringent tannins, we’re excited to re-release this wine that has shown great ageability.
The name of this rich Pinot Noir comes from a shortened version of "house of Marchesi" in Italian. Crafted from a blend of eight Pinot Noir clones, this is a limited and special offering.
Fruit hailing from Block 1, which is named for the cataclysmic Missoula Floods. Aromas of marionberry, Bing cherry and black currant mingle with fresh earth, wet stone, sage and baking spice. Robust and savory.
Graham's Block 7 is our oldest block in the vineyard. A beautiful blend of Pommard and Wadenswil clones, wine from this block is intense and red-fruit focused. The 2015 vintage was warm, and the wine is balanced and expressive.
Scents of ripe cherry, mushroom and cedar, with hints of tobacco and cocoa nibs coming through slightly. Savory herbs, notably sage, intermingle with a slightly darker version of Parsons’ customary Bing cherry.
Planted with 100% Pommard clone and one of the oldest plantings on the estate, the Parsons’ Ridge block always produces wines of complexity and character. This wine is nicely balanced with plenty of fruit and spice.
