One of the very best places in the world to grow premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wine grapes is in Northwestern Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Over the past five decades, this region has earned an international reputation for the exceptional quality of its grapes and it now produces some of the most admired and coveted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines in the world. Erratic Oaks Vineyard was first planted in 2007 and has been producing grapes for us since 2009. Erratic Oaks Vineyard is located 45 miles east from the Oregon Coast and the Pacific Ocean. Between the coast and Erratic Oaks, the Coastal Range of mountains abruptly rise 3,000 feet to shield the Willamette Valley and moderate the cooling influence of the coast’s maritime climate, allowing for ample summertime warmth in the critical growing and fruit maturation seasons.

Citation Oregon Pinot Noir 2005

Produktbeskrivelse

The finest Pinot Noir we offer, Citation Oregon is created by looking beyond the limits of geographic boundaries to attain the highest quality possible.  After scouring the furthest reaches of the state and our own vineyards and valley, the most promising vineyard blocks were selected and fermented in small vessels. Punched-down twice a day by hand, the wine was later gently pressed to French oak barrels and aged for the next 18 months. Careful selection of the best barrels produced a small quantity of deep, luscious Pinot Noir.

Bottle-aged a full nine years before release, the 2005 Citation Pinot Noir has developed complexity only achieved with great patience and has proven to be a truly world-class wine. Deep garnet in color, its youthful aromas of black cherry and cinnamon meld with those developed in the bottle: sliced mushroom and forest floor.  Mouth-filling flavors of cherry pie and vanilla sit atop the wine’s still maturing silty tannins, as faint echoes of oak linger on the finish.
