Notes: The harvest of 2019 will be remembered for the abundance of precipitation that fell in September and early October. We were lucky to pick perfectly ripe grapes between rain showers. The wine was fermented with native yeasts, 30% wholecluster inclusion and aged in Oregon and French oak barrels. We bottled without fining or filtration. This Pinot has aromas of ripe red berry fruit and baking spices with flavors of the same supported by firm tannins and lifted acidity.
