This is our second release of this wine from the Trovato Vineyard, our estate property in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. This Pinot Noir is a blend of multiple blocks throughout vineyard, representing a diversity of clones – from the classic Pommard and Dijon clones, to newly selected cultivars such as Mt. Eden and Wädenswil. The diversity of Pinot Noir clones used creates a complex wine which is stylistically different from the Pinot Noirs produced on our estate Furioso Vineyard in Dundee.

On the nose, this young wine has hints of rose petal, graphite, and tarragon, as befits Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir. In the mouth, elements of cranberry and orange, more “red fruited” than the 2018 vintage, evokes thoughts of fresh-caught grilled Pacific Northwest salmon. As with all Furioso wines, this bottle was made to be cellared and will continue to evolve in the bottle for up to 10 years. To enjoy this wine young, it should be decanted before serving.

Vintage Notes

2019 saw a growing season cooler on average than what the previous few years had us accustomed to, bringing a total heat accumulation similar to 2005, one of our favorite Willamette Valley vintages. Regrettably, precipitation, which was fairly moderate prior to harvest, increased by mid-September especially at our estate vineyard in Dundee. The decision to harvest had to be hastened, as Botrytis was showing its ugly head. A slow and painstaking sorting process in the vineyard and winery allowed us to only keep the most pristine clusters. Our quest for quality affected yield, resulting in 20% less wine from our old Dundee vines that year. The silver lining is that our Trovato vineyard in Yamhill was not hit as hard by the rains, which means there will still be plenty of Furioso wines to go around. Looking back, we think the decision to harvest earlier was the right one, as we avoided catastrophe, not only from the rain but also from the migratory birds which came earlier that year and devastated some vineyards in Oregon. Altogether, 2019 gave us a classic Willamette Valley vintage: beautiful cellar worthy Pinots, and electric acidity ideal for Chardonnay and sparkling wines.
