2016 Oak Ridge Pinot Noir
Bright and ruby-colored with exceptional clarity in the glass, this Pinot delivers lively aromas of rosehip and dried cherry. Subtle, playful notes of spice, bramble fruits, and cranberry lead into a taut, graceful finish with perceptive tannins.
Proudly featuring Organically certified Columbia Gorge fruit. The Oak Ridge Vineyard is dry farmed and perched in the foothills of Mount Adams. Harvested September 22 & 24.
Small lots were fermented separately in stainless steel vessels, majority whole cluster. Wine aged on lees for 14 months in neutral barriques and concrete. 325 cases produced.
The 2016 vintage represents one of the finest expressions we’ve made from the Oak Ridge Vineyard. The tension, acidity, depth of varietal character and natural expression of site culminated into a great wine that we couldn’t be more excited to release.
