2019 Pinot Noir, S

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 5 barrel blend selected, we selected Pommard, 115 and Wadenswil clones. 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. 125 cases produced

TASTING NOTES: Dark ruby red, reveals beautiful, expressive aromas of red fruits and a distinct brambliness. There’s a subtle feral quality that expresses umami of sautéed spices and wild mushrooms in butter with crisp prosciutto and candied figs. Flavors of cherries, plum & wild raspberries lead, while spice and mineral overtones round and a deft touch of oak imparts a delicious toast and note of sweet vanilla. Nicely balanced, offers length on the palate with a bit of structured tanninsThe finish is savory and long. Should age 2-12 years
