The seriously awesome Pinot Noir from one of our favorite new Oregon producers. Structured, earthy, lean and maybe just a hint of smokiness. Complex and impressive.
From the mouth of the importer (Communal Brands):
"One man’s Reserve is another man’s Super Deluxe. Fruit is 65% Sisu Vineyard/ Yamhill-Carlton, 35% Cancilla Vineyard/Gaston, 15% Mason Ridge/Helvatia, 5% Roots Vineyard/Yamhill-Carlton. All lots treated as follows: Hand-picked and hand-sorted. De-stem med into 1.5 ton open top fermenters, with gentle punch downs performed 2-3 times per day, as needed. Both lots settled for 24 hours before racking. Free run juice racked into barrels and secondary juice pressed off into separate barrels. Sulfur program: zero at crush, 30ppm in individual barrels after MLF, at 20ppm on blended tank at bottling. Elevage in neutral to neutral-ish barrels for 16 months with no racking performed until bottling. No fining or filtration."
