2015 Grand Assemblage Pinot Noir
This multi-vineyard blend is intended to be a vintage snapshot, weaving the temperament of each vineyard site into a cohesive whole. I strive to craft a vivacious yet elegant wine that counters juicy acidity with rich mouthfeel for both freshness and ageability. 23% new oak barrels contribute structured tannins and a touch of cedar and redwood accents. This is a classic example of Oregon Pinot Noir at its best, assertive yet enjoyable in its youth with excellent aging potential.
