Yamhill Close (The Villages level) – 3756 bottles produced

100% Pinot Noir from mixed parcels of silty, clay and volcanic red basalt totaling 0.81ha in Yamhill Carlton 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.

The nose of this wine resembles the wafting of smoky tea and raspberry with hints of salinity and caramel. The palate highlights blue fruit along with herbal hibiscus, earthy notes of truffle, and a firm texture that defines the minerality.
