Announcing the Release of our Three Feathers 2018 Cuvée Virginia Pinot Noir
We are proud to announce the release of our latest Cuvée, the 2018 Cuvée Virginia. Bottled in August of 2019 we have been keeping it until now so the wine has had a chance to develop in the bottle. This Cuvée is a sophisticated blend of Pinot Noir grapes from our two Chehalem Mountains vineyards; Three Feathers and Torio Vineyard.
As 2018 was a warm dry year, the grapes at Three Feathers ripened to exceptional sweetness and abundance. Barrels of wine from the 667 grapes at this site were selectively blended with the Dijon clones and Pommard harvested at Torio Vineyard, where the juices were slightly tarter. This combination yielded a pleasing balance between sugars and acidity and is smooth from start to finish.
