WHISTLING RIDGE VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
SOLD OUT - 2017 "Richard's Cuvée" Chardonnay $50
Subtle, nuanced, beautiful, and incredibly fine; the 2017 Richard's Cuvée was sourced from a single 820L foudre of Chardonnay from Whistling Ridge Vineyard. The wine shows extraordinary balance and layering, with lemon curd, sea air, almond blossom and delicate smoke. Forest moss, meyer lemon, summer grasses, salt stones and wild ginger. The palate has tremendous build, yet remains essentially a reflective wine.
2017 Whistling Ridge Chardonnay $38
Chalk, salinity, rock dust, and fresh grain. Meyer lemon curd, kumquats, orange pith, almond flower, and new spring growth. Linear body, briny and citrusy, stoney and salty in the finish. This balances broadness with enough structure and acidity to be enjoyable, refreshing, and age worthy.
DURANT VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
2017 Durant Vineyard Chardonnay $38
Lemon zest, kumquat, green pineapple, pears, lime leaf, and mango peel. Field flowers and wintergreen, sea beans and bay leaves. Tasted at room temp, this wine is voluminous yet dense, filled with the scents of exotic fruits and spices, warmly rich on a complex backdrop. Chilled a bit, the wine draws into bright citrus notes layered over a saline backdrop, smooth and perfectly balanced.
WHISTLING RIDGE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
2016 Heritage #7 $70 ▪ 2016 Whistling Ridge Pinot Noir $45
The vibrant juiciness of the 2016 vintage paired with the natural structure of Whistling Ridge brought us an extraordinary pair of vineyard designate wines, from one of the truly great sites of Oregon.
The single vineyard bottling shows red currant, black cherry and brown spice, with roses, perfume, deep savory herb, dried ginger, peppercorn, and a sweet citrus pith.
Heritage #7 was drawn from two puncheons of the Beloved Acre block at Whistling Ridge. Velvety red currant, strawberry and kirsch, with tobacco leaf, cedar, candied ginger, and heather. Extraordinary precision and layering, density and structure to cellar through 2035. Whistling Ridge Vineyard sits ridge-top in the Ribbon Ridge AVA. Planted, and farmed by Patricia Gustafson and Richard Alvord since 1989.
DURANT VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
2016 Heritage #8 $70 ▪ 2016 Durant Vineyard Pinot Noir $45
The fruit off of Durant Vineyard in 2016 produced a perfect balance between juice, fine skin tannins, and acidity. The single vineyard shows warm red fruit and dried strawberries, accompanied with woodsy notes, leather, depth, and exotic spices.
The Heritage #8 is a selection of only two puncheons that were of even greater quality and balance from the very beginning. Elegant, silky and plush, with intense floral notes, tobacco leaf, black tea, and pure red fruit.
FIR CREST VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
2016 Fir Crest Vineyard Pinot Noir $45
Tucked into the foothills of the Coast Range in the south-west corner of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, Fir Crest Vineyard is one of Oregon's most under the radar gems. Pinot Noir from this site is dark and intense, yet somehow elegant and precise at the same time. The nose on the 2016 bottling is smoke, forest floor, layers of Boysenberry and Marionberry, stem spice, and a perfectly balanced savory finish. Our 2016 is 100% Wadensville clone, marked by tight, tiny clusters, and the modest yields of older vines.
