A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“Haunting, ethereal, velvety, sexy. Wow.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 13 - 18°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | 2033

TASTING NOTES

Delicate and finely balanced, with aromas of rose petal and violet over red cherry and rhubarb. On the palate, bright red fruits are enveloped in soft, velvety tannin with refined oak and a long finish.

SEASON

It was another in a string of good vintages in Willamette. Spring and summer were warm and very dry. A welcome rain event at the end of summer revived vines and spirits and the cool autumn that followed was an ideal end to the season, allowing steady, slow final ripening. An unusually high amount of sunshine helped build color and complexity and keep vine diseases at bay. Our Pinot harvest was conducted in perfect cool, dry conditions in mid-late September.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked, chilled and destemmed then sorted. The must was fermented in small open fermenters and plunged by hand. We chose not to include any whole bunches so that the wine would be a pure reflection of La Sierra fruit. The new wine was gravity-fed to barrels in the underground cellar, where it matured for 11 months in a mix of old and new barrels from a selection of Burgundian coopers.

 
THE VINEYARD

THE VINEYARD

La Sierra Vineyard

La Sierra was planted in 2006 as a sister vineyard to La Colina. Site specifics are important here and, though the vineyards are adjacent, there are differences which make their wines unique. 

La Sierra is on gentle slopes facing south, so the vines get maximum sun exposure on long summer days, while cool nights ensure good natural acid retention, creating wines of great balance. The vineyard is certified in the Pacific Northwest’s rigorous LIVE sustainability program.
