1970 was winding down when the founders, Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol Blosser pulled their ’68 VW Camper up to an abandoned prune orchard some 30 miles southwest of Portland. These moonstruck kids had little farming experience and just a basic knowledge of winemaking. What they did have, in abundance, was a passion for growing the Pinot Noir grape and creating world-class wine. Soon after settling on this extraordinary land, they planted their first vines and cinched their place as pioneers in Oregon’s budding organic wine industry.
Black cherry, blackberry and liquorice, backed by a core of sweet caramel and mocha toasty oak. The texture is rich, deep and lush, with smooth, silky, polished tannins, and a finish that is long and complex
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“The 2005 Pinot Noir is quite powerful with loads of black cherry aromas, forest floor, violet, cocoa and spice notes. A full-bodied, smooth Pinot with forward cherry and blueberry fruit on the palate, leather and obvious black pepper. Youthful and concentrated–pair with medium-firm cheeses, hearty fish dishes or duck.” – Daenna Van Mulligen – Wine Diva
“Lovely sweet earth and ripe cherry nose, with full fruit and a little touch of briar and cedar. The palate has lovely hints of strawberry and cherry fruit, with the weight of creamy oak supporting. 91/100.” – Winepages.comThis wine is from a certified producer.
