Petite's notes: One of our very favorite Oregon Pinot Noirs from a female winemaker in Washington (we like all of those things!). Biodynamic farming and low intervention winemaking lend an exceptionally vertical expression for the region - it shows volcanic minerality, blue fruit, a touch of spice, and a velvety (almost chocolatey? finish). Truffle mousse with topped with blueberries and cinnamon. 

About this wine: Our block of the Four Winds was planted in 1996 to Pommard clone Pinot Noir (1 acre). Elevation is 800 feet and south facing. It is own-rooted and dry-farmed. This vineyard is located in the McMinnville Coast Range. The soils have a volcanic origin, primarily Saum, related to Nekia & compared to other appellations in the Willamette Valley, these soils are uniquely shallow for winegrowing with low total available moisture. The resulting wines have pronounced leanness and mineral tones. This is a very special site and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with it.
