2020 Elemental Reserve Pinot Noir
Our Elemental Reserve is always a blend of our winemaker's favorite barrels from a particular vintage. In this case, our selection included whole-cluster fruit from our Homestead Block, Pommard from the east side of the vineyard and 777 from the west side.
While we're used to all kinds of weather here in Oregon, 2020 was a year for the books. A nearly ideal growing season with lower yields meant that the wines of 2020 were poised ot be concentrated, complex and world class. Right at harvest time, wildfires swept the valley. However, thanks to the famous winds of our namesake Van Duzer Corridor, the smoke blew off before affecting the grapes and we were able to make incredibly delicious wines that we can't wait to share with you. If you've wondered about the 2020 harvest and hesitated, we encourage you to try our 2020 vintage...we think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
