Winemaker’s Notes

This 2007 Barrel Select Pinot Noir is an elegant wine; with subtle red
currant & cherry fruit plus fragrant earth & tobacco characteristics. Named
for the winemaker’s son & daughter ; it was grown & made on our property
in the heart of the Willamette Valley and represents the four soil types
of our sloping hillside vineyards. 100% Pinot Noir from French Pommard
and 777 Clones this wine features light color, texture and red fruit. It was
made by hand selecting our favorite barrels from over two hundred barrels
of this vintage. We then aged it a bit longer in neutral French Oak and
one additional year in the bottle before releasing it. Enjoy – it’s one of only
a few hundred cases produced.
