2019 Cahiers Pinot Noir
A luxuriously rich and full-bodied Pinot Noir with rose oil and oolong tea aromas and deep notes of dark fruits, charcuterie, and sea salt on the palate.
Cahiers (KY-YAY) is French for Notebooks or Journals in remembrance and honor of Jimi Brooks, who loved to read and write. Pascal found his father’s journals after he passed, and they allowed him to connect with his father through each journal entry.
Only 100 cases produced!
A wet, but warm spring with a few mild frosts during late April and fewer than average heat spikes.
Near-record precipitation amounts during late June and early July brought increased disease pressure to the region.
The vintage will be remembered for the early rains in September and rapid cool down into October which challenged harvesting decisions.
The cool vintage came largely from substantially lower maximum temperatures while minimum temperatures were near average to slightly above average.
A classic Oregon vintage!
