2017 Estate Pinot Gris
Budbreak was in early April followed by bloom in late June. The sunny growing season gave way to cool showers in early September. A little extra hang time, then harvested October 2nd on a cool, foggy day. Beautiful balance, with pear and white floral aromas. The complexity added by 15% neutral barrels suggests dried apricot, with a creamy mid-palate complementing the crisp finish. 91 Pts., Editors' Choice Wine Enthusiast.
2015 Rosé of Pinot Noir
This perfumed, spicy yet structured rosé received long skin contact with our dark hued pinot gris pommace. Excellent with grilled sausage!
2015 Pinot Gris Late Harvest
Vintage 2015 is the second Late Harvest Pinot Gris in 20 years! Lingering sunny weather allowed us to pick the last fruit on October 16th. Honeyed flavor is balanced by crisp acidity and floral overtones. Sugar at Harvest: 28.2 Brix, Residual Sugar 9.8%. Delicious after dinner dessert wine, pairs superbly with cheeses. 375 ml.
2016 Estate Chardonnay
A beautiful expression of the Dijon 76 Chardonnay grown in Oregon's volcanic soils. Citrus and white peach aromas lead to a complex, silky mid-palate. Minerality on the finish with the barest hint of oak. Perfect for summer seafood.

2017 Estate Pinot Noir
A summer marked by fire and smoke however we escaped without smoke
taint. Instead the vintage offers juicy red cherries and an earth
character with a smooth palate.
2016 Mistake Block
This is a four barrel blend of which two of the barrels are new French oak. It has a little more structure than we usually see due to the tannin development. But the deep, rich plum and sultry texture put this vintage squarely in the style that we have come to expect.
2017 Mistake Block
Our Mistake Block is a slender ten rows. Only four barrels of this silky
Pommard made the cut in 2017. A lush, earthy neutral barrel with deep
plum and generous mouthfeel joins two new French barrels that add spice
and smoke. A final neutral barrel creates a complex balance with
2016 Inchinnan Pinot Noir
The warm sunshine during harvest brought excellent ripeness and tannins to the blend. The usual suspects, Wädenswil (black cherry), Dijon 114 (blackberry earth) and Dijon 115 (acid balance) are all contributing to the tradition. An unmarked wild card barrel made the cut, adding intriguing elements. 94 pts. James Suckling & Gold Medal 2020 TEXSOM International Wine Awards!
2017 Inchinnan Pinot Noir
The traditional black cherry is provided by two barrels of Wädenswil, with earth and mushroom components from the usual Dijon 114. In this vintage, the high toned lift and acidity derives from an exceptional barrel of Dijon 667. Great balance, spice and long finish. 93 pts. James Suckling!
