Grape: 100% Pinot Noir
Region: USA> Oregon> Umpqua Valley.
Description: Located on the bench of the South Umpqua River. Owned by Wayne and Deedy Parker since 1996, with a successful 20 year history of growing grapes. In the 90’s Wayne Parker predicted Oregon would be the next great viticultural area in the United States.
In 2000 they chose to bottle their premium Pinot Noir grapes instead of selling them to high-end wineries.
This is a small, family-run winery with classic, unfettered wines that express the terroir while staying light and balanced. Aromas of cumin, cloves, and rose petals. On the palate the wine displays light to medium-body and integrated tannins. Just ripe cherry-vanilla notes dance on the mid-palate with a hint of toasted oak.
