NEWS! OUR 2014 PINOT NOIR TROUBLE WON GOLD and was an Oregon Wine Press Cellar Select!
We knew the 2014 Pinot Noir was special because it was the first time our vineyard produced two different wines. Until then, the grapes, grown in two separate blocks, produced very similar wine and we just blended everything at bottling. Suddenly, they were different. We believe it is the age of the vines. One block was planted in 2002 and one in 2008. As soon as Jim decided to bottle the two wines, Holly decided to name them TROUBLE AND GEMINI, our two Wine Dogs! People love them. Buy them separately or together.
Our Wines Currently Being Served in the Tasting Room
Also available in our online store.
2014 Mingle – Our lovely, signature white blend of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay. Refreshing and fresh!
2014 Chardonnay – Un-oaked! Pink Grapefruit with good body and a lovely nose.
2014 Pinot Gris – Oregon’s Other Pinot! Full bodied, velvety and soft with tastes of honey and Meyer Lemons.
2014 Riesling - Floral nose, tastes of Lemon Meringue pie with raspberry swirls!
2014 Blush ROSEY – All of our Blushes have a beautiful color, enough sweetness to bring a smile to your lips yet dry enough for the most sophisticated palate.
2015 Blush ROSEY – The growing year was hot and dry so this is a semi-sweet Blush with a nice sweet start and a little drier finish.
2011 Pinot Noir –So smooth. Fruit forward and a very long finish. This is our newest STAR with a Double Gold in the Oregon Wine Awards, a Gold in the Northwest Food and Wine Festival, another Gold in the Pacific Northwest Invitational; and two Silvers – the American Wine Society and the Pinot Noir Shootout in Sonoma!
2012 Pinot Noir – Bold, rich raspberry, tobacco. Very smooth. The 2012 Pinot Noir won a Silver medal in the New York International Wine Competition. We are very pleased as we believe this is an excellent wine. Over 1000 wines were tasted and less than 30% won medals. There were fourteen Pinot Noirs that won a Silver (none won Gold) and we were one of four from Oregon.
2013 Pinot Noir – a crowd pleaser! Well balanced, fruit forward, excellent flavor and very smooth. Two Gold medals
2014 Pinot Noir GEMINI – SILVER medal! As the star sign, two pleasures: gentle berries uniting with silky richness .
2014 Pinot Noir TROUBLE – Gold medal! Vibrant and full of pepper, licorice and spice.
VXX and XII - Two very special Pinots in the Port-style. – Both of these are made entirely from our Pinot Noir grapes and distilled with a brandy made from our wine. VXX is made from our Double Gold 2011 Pinot Noir. It is incredibly smooth with deep, deep berry and raisin flavors in a luxurious wine with decadent elegance. 16% alc. 3% sugar and aged for two years in oak.
XIIVXX is made from our 2012 Pinot, a legendary vintage in the Willamette Valley. It aged for over three years in oak and is silky and elegant with dark, rich flavors of berry, chocolate and a bit of cinnamon. 17% alc., 4% sugar.
Both of these dessert wines are wonderful complements to fruits and cheeses and to desserts
