The 2018 Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir was crafted from fruit grown on our Gran Moraine Vineyard, which was planted in 2005 and is one of the more westerly vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton. A small amount of additional fruit was sourced from our Winery Estate vineyard, which was planted in 2007 and is just six miles northeast of the town of Carlton. Both sites are located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and contain some of the oldest marine sedimentary based soils in the greater Willamette Valley.

FLAVORS: Pomegranate, shitake mushroom, black pepper, molasses, leather

TEXTURE: Wound like a spring with red to blue fruit notes on the mid palate, cleansing acidity and vibrant tannins on the finish

93 pts Wine Spectator

Dynamic yet elegant and sleek, with refined cherry, dusky spice and crushed stone accents that take on richness and structure toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2028.

92 pts Wine Advocate

Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton has broody aromas of crushed cherries and blood orange with accents of forest floor and exotic spices. The medium-bodied palate is silky with uplifted, floral-laced fruits and a long, vivacious finish. 6,594 cases produced.
