Pinot Noir from our family estate in the Chehalem Mountains (planted in 2018). Farmed, vinified & bottled by our family to yours.
57 cases produced. From a combination of three barrels that focuses on our sites more delicate features, BLEND 1 was built to showcase our vineyard's elegance. Chosen from barrels that felt softer & lighter on the palate, BLEND 1 has a makeup of 60 percent from our uppermost block (1). The higher elevation of block 1 allows cooler temperatures which is demonstrated by ripening roughly 10 days behind the rest of the vineyard and well as a increased comparative acidity during harvest. Along with BLEND 1's lighter weight and softer texture, it also offers more red fruit dominance on the palate as well as black tea notes- a common thread we find from the northeast part of the vineyard. To match the elegance of the wine, BLEND 1 contains no new oak, but mostly once-filled barrels to offer more fine tannin to match its delicate texture.
