"2017 tempered August’s occasional heat events with September’s return to cool days and nights. Whether there was any effect of the 1:49 of total solar eclipse is yet to be seen. Production of this wine returned to 2015’s level this year due to the high quality of grapes and the inclusion of two new vineyards (Prophet in EAH and Azana in Chehalem Mountains). I’m quite proud to offer a truly artisanal, hands-off pinot noir made the same way as our single-vineyard wines at a most reasonable price. Bright and aromatic with red cherry, sour cherry and spice moving to riper mouth-filing fruit with juicy acid and a succulance on the finish."
