Tasting Notes:

A mix of several Pinot Noir clones planted in Willakenzie soils produced a wine with heady notes of chocolate-dusted dark cherries and candied violets. The palate is bold with juicy black raspberry, cherry compote, cola, and sweet clove notes layered over a plush palate of soft tannins that carry through a long, enticing finish. Only 200 cases were made!

About Fennwood Vineyard:

Owned by the Hampton Family and situated within the beautiful hills of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA between the small towns of Carlton and Lafayette. Fennwood Vineyard was first planted in 2007 & 2008 by David Adelsheim and later expanded with further plantings and clones by the Hampton Family in 2016 & 2019. The site has a complex mix of clones matched with several Marine Sediment soils that produce deep, richly fruited Pinot Noir with a perfect touch of floral elegance and spice. 

2022 Vintage:

A year that kept us guessing, 2022 was an unusual vintage in the northern Willamette Valley. April brought one of our latest snows on record, with growers worried about frost damage. Thankfully, most vineyard sites set a generous crop which after a slow spring required thinning to encourage ripening. Temperatures finally warmed in August and September, but cool nights ensured adequate hangtime and flavor development. A string of sunny October days gave us the final ripening we desperately needed. Nearly every block of fruit was ready over a compressed two-week period, so the fruit arrived at peak ripeness during a very intense harvest season in the cellar. We expect our hard work to be rewarded with complex, fruit-forward wines.
