WHISTLING RIDGE VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
2016 "Richard's Cuvée" Chardonnay $45
The Richard’s Cuvée is drawn from Dijon and Heirloom clones inter-planted together in a single ridge-top acre. In 2016 this wine is restrained, elegant, dense, and rich. Dried flowers, fresh baked bread, sea grasses, smoke, almond paste, and cantaloupe, with a linear finish of zest and crushed oyster shells. Sourced entirely from two 800L foudres.
DURANT VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
2016 Durant Vineyard Chardonnay $40
From Dijon vines planted in 1993, the volcanic soils of the Durant vineyard provide remarkable Chardonnays. In 2016 the texture is rich and delicate while retaining vibrant purity, linearity and effortlessness. Floral, with lime zest and golden fruit, fresh grain, fennel seed and almond. This is our favorite vintage for this wine to date.
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.
