Irresistibly charming, dry yet smooth, with plenty of juicy, enticing, dark cherry and berry fruit. This beautiful wine is full of flirtatious hints that draw you right in... The lovely, mineral-accented Pinot Noir is silky, seamless and focused on the palate, offering a long, vibrant finish. Andrew's passion for wine was nurtured not in the soils of Willamette, but in the urban sprawl of NYC, where he once edited the wine column for a national magazine. When the pull of wine outgrew than that of publishing, he headed to Burgundy to study winemaking & viticulture, a move that lead the small but influential Bonny Doon Vineyard, in California. Skills honed, Andrew headed to Oregon in 1994 with the quixotic vision of making Rh?;ne-style wines in the Willamette Valley from Columbia Valley grapes. He was a little ahead of the curve: it wasn't until 2000 that he was finally able to realize that vision. Meanwhile, he discovered his love of Pinot Noir, which became the more dominant prong of his focus. The intent is always to make wines of balance, grace, and sheer deliciousness.
