This fine-tuned, silky-textured and well-structured Pinot Noir serves up a hint of earthines, giving it a distinctly Burgundian quality. It is redolent of plu, cola, cedar and spice - all framed in subtle toast.

ABOUT THE VINEYARD:
Temperance Hill Vineyard - one of the oldest in the appellation - is planted at a high elevation by Oregon standards and sits squarely on the 45th parallel, renowned as a benchmark latitude for winegrowers in France as well as Oregon. Peter Paul's designated vineyard block is south-facing, which provides maximum ripening potential in a cooler region such as this one. The grapes punched down by hand and fermented cool, for a long, slow primary and secondary (malolactic) fermentation. Aging is in French oak for 12 to 14 months.
