2016

  • 2016 Kiff Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir

    The 2016 Kiff Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir fruit was sourced entirely from the Kiff Vineyard; it displays brilliant red color, with wonderful flavors of Rainier cherry, fresh berries, Ambrosia apple, and an underlying hint of minerality. Although the wine has no residual sugar, the rich mid-palate volume is nicely balanced by bracing acidity, which results in velvety texture and a long, seamless finish.

  • 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

    Fruit for the 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir was sourced from four different vineyards.  In addition to Kiff Vineyard and Johnson Ridge Vineyard, we sourced fruit from Noel Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains and Cassin Vineyard in the Yamhill Carlton AVA. Each brings unique characteristics to the blend, as clones such as Wadenswil and 114 were introduced.  The resulting wine displays aromas of ripe Italian plums, cherry, and raspberry.  With a hint of spice and chocolate, it is mouth-filling, with velvety tannins.

2014

  • 2014 Tête de Cuvée Pinot Noir

    Tête de Cuvée Pinot Noir is only produced when we are able to create a blend that transcends our single-vineyard wines. This was the case in 2014, when we combined the ripe red fruit flavors and intensity of Kiff Vineyard fruit with the dark, dense flavors and mid-palate volume of Johnson Ridge fruit. The resulting wine is balanced and complex, with rich flavors of ripe raspberry Black and Bing cherry, and a hint of forest floor, all of which lead into voluptuous mid-palate volume, velvety tannins, and a long, seamless finish.
