2014 Cuvée 22 Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills AVA
This is only the second time we have made an old vine Pinot Noir cuvée.  This wine celebrates Amy’s 25th vintage making wine in Oregon! After several comparative tastings, three barrels consistently rose to the top above everything else from the vintage. Amy selected three barrels from our 38-year-old own-rooted Pommard vines, and a single barrel of Coury clone from Bill and Julia Wayne’s outstanding Abbey Ridge Vineyard (also planted in 1977 & 38 years old) for this cuvée.  In a ripe vintage, this wine was picked in the last week of September with excellent acidity and moderate sugar (22.9 degrees Brix).  It spent 20 months in barrel with 25% new wood.  It has a rich, balanced palate that shows the length and weight of our old vines.  With a wide flavor spectrum from raspberry-sweet spice to marionberry and fresh truffly-earth, it has great richness and the structure to age for 15+ years.  This four-barrel lot was bottled without fining or filtration in early April in the spring of 2016.
