2019 Willamette Valley Pinot noir
The 2019 Bounteous Pinot noir is a classic example of Willamette Valley Pinot noir and a reflection of a more restrained and balanced vintage. The wine is layered with fruit and spice, and while being less fruit-forward than other vintages, maintains a sense of approachability.
Notes of strawberry and raspberry are balanced by dried herbs and black tea. These transition to the mouth with phenomenal acidity, a hint of mushroom and blackberry leaf, and a filled out mid-palate that leaves a long finish and exquisite, lingering flavors.

2019 Meredith Mitchell Pinot blanc
The Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot blanc is our unique take on this Alsatian classic.
The aromatics show depth and layered complexity. A hint of barrel leads immediately to notes of grapefruit and papaya, with an underlying briny character. The palate has weight without being heavy, gliding from flavors of kiwi fruit to persimmon and nougat. The flavor lingers, the finish is long, and the wine is undeniably striking.

2018 Winderlea Vintage Sparkling Brut
Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit for our sparkling is pressed slowly and gently before the juice is moved to neutral French oak where it ferments and ages for seven months. The finished wine is bottled along with a small amount of sugar and yeast- essential ingredients for the secondary bottle fermentation. After two years in tirage, we are pleased to share it with you.
Layers of frangipane, freshly baked-brioche, crushed sea shells and lemon curd open generously on the nose. White peach follows before flowing into yuzu blossom, fresh fennel, sourdough toast and a whisper of lemon thyme. Energetic and lifted, the racy tension is followed by a fine, lingering mousse on the palate.
Selections: 52% Dijon 76 Chardonnay, 48% Pommard Pinot noir
