High up in the rolling oak and pine forests leading into the coastal mountain range lies the 21 acres of Gregory Ranch. This is a wild area where hers of elk and black bears roam the blackberry and poison oak thickets that are peppered with witch’s broom and wild mushrooms. Known for its tremendous concentration and character at lower alcohol levels, the 2015 Gregory Ranch Pinot Noir is our sixth vintage from this great Yamhill Carlton ACA vineyard site with older and deeper roots.
Black cherry in color, this wine has very complex, dark aromas of chocolate, coffee, ripe juicy blackberries, plums, and red roses. There is a soil character, like loamy mushrooms, that adds a dark savory character to this wine. The mouth is rich and savory with a strong floral expression and also cassis. This is a large-scaled effort with a cool vibrancy to it that keeps it balanced and delicious with a sweet core of fruit. This is a rich and expansive wine that is mouth-coating and full-bodied, but the good level of natural acidity keep this wine juicy and youthful.
