Worden Hill "The Black Walnut" (the Articulates level) - 1230 bottles produced.

100% Pinot Noir from a single parcel of 0.34ha in Black Walnut slopes in the Dundee Hills AVA

100% destemmed, and the extraction is light like an infusion, with cold maceration and fermented with indigenous yeast. Matured for 12-15 months in up to 50% new French Burgundian oak.

Sitting at 260 meters in elevation, Black Walnut slopes south and is a well structured soil of loamy weathered basalt, pebbles and sand. Highly oxidized, iron rich soil.

Seductively silky with expressive raspberry and plum flavors accented by black tea, river stone and warm spice details.
