2020 Bounteous Pinot noir
This expressive blend of Pinot noir is made of some of Winderlea’s most prized vineyard designate sites.
Bright and lively aromatics of Rainier and Bing cherries combined with earth and baking spice. This wine shows weight on the palate without feeling heavy. Add flavors of dark cherry, plum, black raspberry with hints of earth and cedar to this wine’s plush mouthfeel. While this wine is very approachable in its youth, fine tannins carry notes of cherry and dried herbs on this wine’s lengthy finish.
Vineyards: Winderlea, Worden Hill & Shea Vineyards
Selections: Pommard, Dijon 667 & 115, Wädenswil
Best Paired With: Hearty braised short ribs and root veggies after day tripping in the country in search for colorful leaves.
2018 Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot noir
From the Coast Ranges of the McMinnville AVA comes a Pinot noir that exemplifies the richness of this region and the signature syrah-like color of the site.
Red cherries, raspberries, and brambly blackberries immediately jump from the glass followed by notes of clove, mesquite, and wet cedar. On the palate the wine shows cherry liqueur, marionberry, earthy wet loam and a hint of tarragon. With nice weight and texture, this wine is both approachable while hinting at its history for aging potential.
Selections: 100% Own-rooted Pommard
Best Paired With: Truffle mac and cheese after carving the perfect jack-o-lantern with the kiddos.
2020 Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot blanc
The Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot blanc is our unique take on this Alsatian classic.
Distinct aromatics of stone fruit, Bosc pear, lemon tart and ocean spray stun the senses. On the palate this wine is lithe and textured with just a hint of creamy softness balancing bright acidity. Starfruit and lime zest complement the more subtle flavors of fresh lemon thyme and creme anglaise to round out the finish.
Vineyard: Meredith Mitchell
Best Paired With: Picnics and apple picking on the first crisp, cool, clear day.
