2019 Pinot Blanc
The Pinot Blanc is sourced from Yamhill Valley Vineyards in McMinnville AVA in the Willamette Valley.

2019 Vintage Summary:
The growing season saw a few mild frosts during late April, but started off warmer than average, moderating through mid-vintage with fewer than average heat spikes. The vintage will be remembered for the early rains in September and rapid cool down into October which challenged harvesting decisions. The cool temperatures and moisture slowed down the increase in sugar while allowing flavor and aroma compounds to develop. We have a classic Oregon vintage in the making; low alcohol, complex aromas, flavors, and nice acidity.

Tasting Notes:
The aromatic nose on this white wine is reminiscent of the summer sweet scents of pear and honeydew melon whereas its flavor is more expansive, blushing onto the pallet with hints of starfruit, Crispin apple, and tart lemon layered with pleasant toasted spices.

Pairing Notes:
This soft Pinot Blanc will complement a range of seafood and cheeses such as, crab, fresh halibut, or bri cheese. It has enough soft oak to serve with a creamy pasta, as well.

2017 Cuvée Pinot Noir

The Cuvée consists of fruit from the estate called the “Bailey Block” which is the last name of the winemaker, along with fruit from Yamhill Valley Vineyards. The Bailey Block is 660 to 700 feet in elevation.

Vintage Summary:
The 2017 growing season began with a more normal bud break. The average daily temperatures were slightly warmer with three high temperature incidents and warmer nights. The year ended with a beautiful ripening period of cooler than normal temperatures in the month of September leading to a more fruit characteristics balancing nicely with the minerality and acidity.

Tasting Notes:
As a "blend" of pinot noir you first meet your nose with ripe cherry and wet stone. As you take your first sip cherry cola, and strawberry rhubarb pie, with subtle acid, and soft tannin to finish your palate off. 

Pairing Suggestions:
This Cuvée is light-bodied, so it will pair with everything: fish, beef, chicken, or Friday night pizza. You can even pair this with PB & J or spiced tacos.
