2014 Gregory Ranch Pinot Noir 5L
Planted 2007 * Yamhill-Carlton AVA * Elevation: 460ft
The Gregory Ranch is a 21-acre vineyard planted on a 100+ acre property in the forested foothills of the coast range in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The vineyard is surrounded by old growth Douglast Fir, pine, and large prawling oak trees. Wild elk and black bear roam the woods, and the forest floor is laced with truffles and mushrooms of all type. Always one of our most robustly earthy and tannic Pinot Noirs.
Josh Bergström's Notes
*notes are from original release in 2016
In warm years like 2014, the Gregory Ranch is one of our ripest and richest expressions because of the thin soils, very low natural yields, and steep eastern exposures. The 2014 Gregory Ranch Pinot Noir may be one of our best yet from this great property. This wine has a very dark ruby red color reminiscent of a black cherry. The aromas are a deep, dark, brooding perfume of black fruits, beef bouillon, spice cupboard, black licorice, savory herb garden, and tobacco leaf. This is a very concentrated young wine that has years of promise ahead of it. Rich flavors of black cherry and black raspberry coat the mouth. Silky smooth with fine grained fruit and wood tannins that give this wine not only power, but grace as well. Drink Now to 2023+. Alcohol: 13.2%
