2014 Hundredth Valley Vineyard Pinot Noir

2014 Hundredth Valley Vineyard Pinot Noir


As we work more with Elkton Oregon fruit, we are pleased to offer this bottling from a new vineyard planted in 2011 on Elk Creek, less than a mile NE of our winery. Sometimes new vines, when properly farmed, can show advantages of careful canopy management, just because they are young and less vigorous. The name comes from the nickname of the Umpqua, The One Hundred Valleys. The wine is a blend of Dijon 828 and Pommard, both of which were immediately intriguing to work with. The color is a quite deep shade of ruby. The nose has strong aromas of blackberries, cherries and wild brush and herbs. There is a sweet note and some nice complementary aromas of barrel and derived spice. The flavors bring forth a big hit of blueberries and very pleasant acidity. The mouthfeel is pleasant and tangy, with a moderate finish.

Pair With: With this apparent juicy acidity and brushy texture, the wine makes me think of Mexican food, and it would be wonderful with any dish that supports a Mole sauce.
