Other Notes
2021 was a cool and “classic” Willamette Valley vintage. Moderately cool temperatures were the common theme throughout the growing season; extending the start of harvest into late September. Pinot Noir is a varietal that is most expressive when allowed to hang on the vine until the pinnacle of the growing season, and the 2021 vintage allowed the grapes to do just that. Bright and sunny days with cool dry nights were observed the latter half of September and into October giving the grapes the final push to perfect ripeness. This classically Oregon vintage produced wines with delicate nuanced aromas and balanced acidity.
