A fantastic cross section of the Willamette Valley's finest offerings, our Reserve Pinot Noir is truly a celebration of balance. The fruit profile rides the line of red and dark fruit, and can lean in either direction depending on the day. Black cherry and Howes cranberry embraced by subtle, toasted hazelnuts, and vanillin. While the tannins are firm, but rounded, there is an underlying earthy minerality which drives the mid-palate through the long finish.  While delving for pure fruit flavors and juicy acidity, we hang our phenolic hat on our trademark silky texture which has been enhanced through cold soaking in small lot fermenters, along with aging 16 months in French oak barriques.

Situated at 700 to 850 feet in elevation, where the vines are engulfed by the Eola-Amity Hill's persistent drying winds, Spirit Hill Vineyard is always our last Pinot Noir to be picked and handled in the winery. Layers of dark berries, black tea, and river rocks are laced within a framework of structured tannins and mineral tension that drive this Pinot Noir to a long, energetic finish. After fermentation and gentle pressing, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on its lees for 18 months in French oak, of which 30% was new.

Nuthouse Chardonnay is all about the interplay of savory texture and mineral edge. There is a satisfying and long lasting richness that is hard to define in words. A chord which travels from the back of the palate, through the spine and into the crust of the volcanic soil of the Willamette Valley. Fresh cut wheat, lemon sabayon, crêpes suzette, and delicate flake pastry. There is a degree of convection, the concerted, collective movement of groups or aggregates of molecules within this chardonnay, one may say the third dimension. It brings dreams of char-grilled crustaceans and blackened squid. 100% barrel fermented.

Located at the top of Lone Star Vineyard in high-density plantings on devigorated rootstock, our Riesling vines soak up the morning Eola-Amity Hills sunshine throughout the growing season. The 2013 vintage is a brilliant straw color. Elegant, crisp, and defined by lively structure and firm acidity. Orange blossom, quince paste, and white peach with mouthwatering length. This stunning library wine should continue to age gracefully for another 15 years or more with careful cellaring.
