2017 Pinot Noir Umpqua Valley
The Umpqua Valley is nestled between coastal and cascade ranges in the heart of western Oregon and showcases some of the world’s most diverse terroir. Comprising over 140 soil types as well as an array of elevation and aspect combinations, our vineyard sites are often compared to the facets of a diamond. The cool coastal influence preserves acidity while warm summer days contribute depth and concentration in our Pinot Noir.
The 2017 Umpqua Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of Bradley Vineyard from the Elkton AVA and Susan's Vineyard from the high elevation site in the northern part of the Umpqua Valley. Bradley delivers power and structure while Susan's Vineyard layers in silky fruit and elegance. The two vineyards come together in this blend to showcase the best of Umpqua Valley Pinot Noir. This wine opens with cherry and raspberry fruit which gives way to notes of truffle and sandalwood. Mouthwatering acidity and silky tannins make this a great pairing with Cedar Planked Salmon or Wild Mushroom Pizza.
