This wine is not available, but check out the 2018 Crannell Pinot Noir
Gorgeously layered notes of red fruits are harmoniously balanced by silky tannins and a bright vein of acidity.
Comprised of Pinot Noir grapes from Crannell vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills, right below Brooks Estate vineyard. The vines were planted in 1984 in volcanic basalt-jory and nekia soil.
This Pinot Noir is made of 4 clones: Pommard, 115, 777, and 667.
Only 400 cases produced!
A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage fora later harvest than the previous three vintages.
Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer, yielding heat spikes in August. With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which began at Brooks on the 28thof September and ran through November 1st, almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Willamette Valley. The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity.
In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
