LIMITED 2015 Willamette Valley Reserve Pinot Noir

LIMITED 2015 Willamette Valley Reserve Pinot Noir


Each year our Walnut City Reserve represents the best of the cellar and the 2015 vintage offered generous, deep and richly complex Pinots.

An expressive nose of dried rose petal, tart cherry, wild strawberry and raspberry bramble stands prominently and in balance with a palate that is graciously ripe and balanced with bright acidity and a modest alcohol level. The weight and mouth feel are lifted and sleek with a generous, sweet mid-palate and very fine, evolved tannins on the finish. The Reserve is vibrant and energetic in its youth and will be eager to evolve in bottle over the next 8-10 years.

Add To Cart

Grapes were mostly destemmed (15% whole cluster) and cold soaked for 3-5 days. Long, slow fermentations allowed gentle extraction aided by a combination of pumpovers and punchdowns occurring 3 times daily. Aged for 16 months with light lees contact.

After experiencing a record hot and plentiful year in 2014, 2015 was eager to stay in the vein of warm, dry, early and abundant. Great weather rode through bloom and fruit set and carried the crop all the way to harvest.
