TASTING NOTES: Ruby red, reveals beautiful aromas of dark and red fruits. There’s a subtle feral quality that expresses umami of sautéed wild mushrooms in butter with crisp prosciutto and candied figs. Flavors of plums & cherries, wild raspberries layered with sassafras dance on the palate, while spice and black tea overtones round and a deft touch of oak imparts a delicious toast and note of sweet vanilla. Nicely balanced, offers resounding length with a bit of structured tannins. The finish is savory and long. Should age 2-15 years   

The ‘S’ or ‘la Sorella della famiglia(‘sister’ to our Family Estate Pinot Noir) is crafted with a newer oak composition. It is comprised of 100% Lachini Vineyards Pinot Noir from our Biodynamically® farmed Estate vineyard in the North Willamette Valley. Of the final 6 barrel blend selected, approximately 17% were whole cluster fermented with half of the barrels going through native yeast fermentations to soften tannins and yield more expressive spice notes, wild flavors. It was bottled unfined & unfiltered to retain character and terroir. The ensuing warm summer season daytime temperatures and extremely small clusters granted us round, riper fruit, while the cool harvest period yielded great acidity and lowered alcohol! Displays an ease of balance and remarkable silkiness on an expansive mid-palate. The underlying structure, well integrated acidity with fine grained tannins should allow for further development in the bottle and additional nuances over time. Drink it now or lay it down for later. 397 cases produced
