Winemaker September 2022 Selections
2017 Pinot Noir Susan's Vineyard $40.50*
Susan's Vineyard is a high elevation vineyard located in the Umpqua Valley. Planted all to Dijon clones this vineyard exhibits the classic Oregon Pinot Noir characters of elegant fruit and forest floor. For the single vineyard bottling we chose a barrel lot of clones 114, 115 and 777 that was fermented with 25% whole cluster. This method of fermenting on the stems with the berries intact contributes beautiful raspberry frambois character to the wine. Aging in once used French Oak for 12 months softened the tannins to a silky texture.
Tasting notes: The complex nose is full of cherry, raspberry, vanilla, baking spice and forest floor. As you taste the wine you will enjoy the silky texture with sweet fruit and structured tannins wrapped in beautiful acidity. The finish is layered in red fruit and a hint of crushed rose petal.
Pairs well with: Butternut Squash Ravioli with sage brown butter sauce
2021 Fume Blanc $23.40*
Our 2021 Fume Blanc is barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc from the Umpqua Valley. Fermented in natural French oak barrels develops complexity and structure in the wine. After fermentation we stir the barrels weekly to extract richness from the yeast, which is called sur lie aging.
Tasting Notes: You will notice the bright straw color with beautiful clarity. Hints of stone fruit, guava and pineapple on the nose with a touch of dry grass. Rich flesh and yeasty density in the mid palate, with a crisp and dry finish with balanced acidity.
Pairs well with: Chickpea Couscous Salad or Zucchini Gratin
2017 Malbec $32.40*
Our 2017 Malbec is from Southern Oregon where it was harvested in mid October at the peak of ripeness. Our Malbec was fermented in small T-bins, punched down two / three times daily for ultimate extraction. Macerated for ten days on skins then pressed to barrel for two years in 40% new French Oak.
Malbec is primarily found in the Cahors region of France and more recently the winegrowing regions of Argentina. Also know as Cot this variety is know for its dark color and savory flavors.
Tasting Notes: A wine you will drink with your eyes! Dark inky color invites you into this amazing big bold red. The nose leads off with blackberry fruit and brambly notes backed by vanilla and cocoa and a touch of graphite. Soft leather tannins with bright acidity on the finish. This is a stunner and will be enjoyed for years to come.
Pairs well with: Smoked Beef Brisket or Traditional Eggplant Parmigiana
