Elder

This is a 7-acre site planted entirely to Pinot Noir and located just North of panorama point in the east hills of the Hood River Valley. The site slopes gently South and has impressive views of Mt. Hood. The soil contains more clay and iron than Hiyu and produces wines with a darker fruit and a more wild and meaty aromatic profile.

In 2018 we isolated the steepest part of the sites central hill to make as a separate wine. This part of the site faces due South and is extremely well exposed. It makes a very darkly colored, meaty, almost Cote Rotie like Pinot Noir.

2018 is one of those vintages where the volume is turned up on every channel; the wines are extremely rich, aromatic and powerfully structured. This wine is no exception
