Sourced from our 62 acre property with 25 acres of vineyard nestled in the Coast Range of west Carlton, our Estate Wines express Yamhill-Carlton AVA’s terroir beautifully. 100% of the farming is controlled by our Owner/Farmer/Winemaker, Chris Barnes.
The 2015 Pinot Noir is from the first vintage from our estate. The growing season was exceptionally hot and dry, producing a concentrated, dark and bold Pinot Noir. The wine expresses dark fruit character with powerful tannins. Half of the wine was aging in new French oak barrels, which contributes to the toasty caramel notes and lingering chewy finish.
On the nose, you’ll find dark fruit, blackberry charry, with a slight toasted graham cracker note. The palate is explosive - rich in dark chocolate raspberry with a pepper finish.
An elegant, full bodied wine with an earthy, herbacious aromas and hints of passion fruit, grapefruit and white peach. The taste follows the nose with berry flavors and gooseberry that gives it a tart punch at the finish.
Aromas of green apple, Bosc pear, with hints of white peach and citrus. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy with crispness on the finish.
