1998 Pinot Noir ~ Oregon

100% Pinot Noir grapes

The grapes came from the northern Willamette Valley near McMinnville. They were picked early in the morning on October 3rd, loaded directly into our truck, into which we had packed dry ice for the trip back to California. The grapes arrived at the winery just before midnight that same day. Kay made the wine at Rochioli Winery, where the barrels were stored until the wine was bottled. It was aged in French oak - 50% new and 50% used. It was bottled in March of 2000.
