WHISTLING RIDGE VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
2015 "Richard's Cuvée" Chardonnay $45
From a single acre of mixed Dijon and Heirloom clones, the Richard's Cuvée aptly demonstrates the closing gap between Willamette Valley Chardonnays and white Burgundy. The ridge top exposure and shallow sedimentary soils imbue this wine with the energy and mineral finish of the very best Chardonnays. Clean, balanced, and long, the 2015 shows notes of ginger candy, straw, sage, salinity, and blossoms with weight and layered richness.
DURANT VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
2015 Durant Vineyard Chardonnay $39
From Dijon vines planted in 1993, the volcanic soils of the Durant vineyard provide remarkable Chardonnays in all vintages, with texture that is both rich and delicate, aromatic notes of smoke, citrus, almonds, candied ginger, stone fruits, fresh hay and wet stone. From the gentle east slopes of one of the oldest vineyards in the Dundee Hills.
WHISTLING RIDGE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
2015 Heritage #4 $70 ▪ 2015 Whistling Ridge Pinot Noir $45
2015 is a tremendous vintage for Whistling Ridge, all of the savory nuances of the vineyard fold in under very pure red and black fruits, loamy earth, and exotic sweet spice. The Heritage #4 is a barrel selection from the Beloved Acre. Complex, layered and dense, cellar this for ten years, or decant and enjoy over time. The single vineyard is marked by savory herb, tobacco and rich red fruit, fine tannin, tension and drive. Whistling Ridge Vineyard sits ridge-top in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, farmed by Patricia and Richard Alvord. Drink now through 2030.
DURANT VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
2015 Heritage #5 $70 ▪ 2015 Durant Vineyard Pinot Noir $45
Dried strawberries, tobacco and spice. The Durant single vineyard is warm and pretty, with pure lush fruit and softer tannins. The Heritage #5 is a selection of barrels from the old vine planting, established in 1973. East facing, with red volcanic soils, these wines are all 50% or more whole cluster, and see little new wood, but were given a full 21 months to evolve. Drink now or through 2029.
FIR CREST VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
2015 Heritage #6 $70 ▪ 2015 Fir Crest Vineyard Pinot Noir $45
Fir Crest Vineyard is tucked into the far south west corner of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. With violets, deep spice notes, and boysenberry, blackberry, and black cherry fruit notes. The wines are dark with nuance and natural structure. The Heritage #6 is a barrel selection from a higher whole-cluster lot with extraordinary tobacco, fresh herb, black tea, and savory spice notes.
