2012 Crawford Beck Magnum

Of our 2012 Pinot lineup, this wine is the most characteristically New World in style. In the glass, this brooding beauty has a fresh, dark plum color. Its nose is deep with early picked blackberries, chocolate, and black cherry (or was that Cadbury cherry cordial?). This unique nod to wild berry jam continues on the palate with a hint of candied cherry, wrapped in a taut frame of slightly new oak, and white tea leaf. Pair with American classics like BBQ chicken and sweet potato fries.

2012 Estate Vineyard

This is a wine that is not coy or shy. The nose is outgoing with ripe cherry fruit, sweet pomegranate, and plum, with soft notes of clove cigar, and musk. The curvy palate is lush with red cherry, Italian plum, and Marionberries. Note the pleasing floral qualities of lavender, and brown spices like nutmeg, pepper, and chestnut. With astounding acidity, and polished tannins this wine will drink well through 2017. Enjoy with a wild mushroom risotto.

"This forward, fruit driven Pinot finishes with excellent thrust and length, and supple, late-arriving tannins."--Vinous, Josh Reynolds

"...dark, bright and racy with black cherry and tangy acidty, earthy, fresh and complex." --Tasting Panel, Anthony Dias Blue

"It is full of lush, rich fruit flavors without being a jammy fruit bomb. It’s a very in-your-face wine without being obnoxious. There is nothing shy or quiet about it."  --Augusta Chronicle, Dennis Sodomka

2012 Tempranillo

The grapes for our 2012 Tempranillo were sourced from the warmer climes of southern Oregon’s Rogue River Valley. Folin Vineyard is situated at high elevation (about 2000 feet) where evening coolness helps “temper” against southern Oregon’s heat-filled days

2012 Trig

Smart, faithful, and true, Trig is the epitome of quality Oregon Pinot. This wine is always comprised of our two best barrels. For vintage 2011 Trig, we selected from two rather ‘cultish’ vineyards, Olenik in the Chehalem Mountains, and Goodrich from the Yamhill Carlton AVA.

2011 Black Hole Vineyard

Rich aromas of rose petals and crushed red cherries jump from the glass! Round and polished on the entry, the wine is juicy, drenched in black cherry with edges of graphite mineral and hints of cinnamon bark. Elegant and showy, this wine should improve over the next 10 years through 2021, and hold its own into the next decade.

2011 Estate Vineyard

This beautiful expression of our Estate vineyard Pinot noir is a stunner on all fronts! In the glass, this wine is vibrant garnet with fantastic clarity. The nose greets you with red cranberry, red cherry, and crushed raspberry, with soft meaty notes of seasoned leather and ripe savory notes. On the palate, one is greeted by generous red fruits, wrapped up in a firm structure of tannin and crisp acidity. This wine will age well in your cellar, or enjoy now with rich buttery northwest salmon. 

"Substantial mouth texture with subtle fruit that's mellow, warm and perfect to curl up with." --Durham Magazine

2011 Goodrich Vineyard

Less than 4 cases...

A high-density, young vineyard north of Yamhill, next door to Atticus Vineyard, Goodrich supplied young-vine Pommard for this savory 2011. Medium garnet color, clear and bright. A shy aroma of roasted brown tea on the nose, this wine enters the palate broadly with rich and ample flavors of cola and sassafras. Smooth and silky, the wine is showy and drinkable now through 2018.

2011 Meredith Mitchell Vineyard

Having worked with Meredith Mitchell for 14 years, we’ve come to expect the unexpected with this wine. In this vintage we are impressed with the diversity of fruit showing, given the cool growing year. On the nose, ripe red cherry and plums dominate, enveloped in a unique earthiness suggesting wild game, toasted nuts and Hibiscus tea. On the palate, young fruit like tight Italian plum, and tart blueberries intermingle with black cherry juice. This wine will certainly respond well to aging, and welcomes decanting now for early enjoyment. Serve with Mediterranean spiced pork chop, or a lean steak off the grill.

2011 Olenik Vineyard

14 bottles left...

Our 2011 Olenik is a crystal clear, bright garnet color, with clean aromas classically expected from Olenik vineyard: reserved berry notes lurking beneath the surface, promising additional amplitude with bottle age. Entering with sweet cranberry compote on the palate, a hint of black tea tannins follow, giving this wine some length and structured sophistication. The Olenik is quite enjoyable now, alongside rich foods such as tea-smoked duck, but it begs for some cellar aging to “fatten” in the bottle. Possessing a nice balance of acidity and texture, this low alcohol wine (12.5%) still has sufficient fruit to go the distance. We predict that it will take on a Burgundian profile as it matures, becoming as much about the acidity, texture, and terroir as it will be about any particular fruit notes.

2011 Tempranillo

Our first vintage from Folin, this wine demonstrates the elegance and finesse this Spanish varietal achieves when unencumbered by excessive over-ripeness or manipulation. Good, dark ruby color with a beautiful nose of crushed blackberry, marionberry and bright, fresh fruit: candied cherry with orange peel marry with a touch of rose petal. With a very focused entry on the palate, the wine gives way to earth, and  a purity of fruit expression lingering on the palate. Blackberry and marionberry flavors dominate, followed up with mole spiciness. Rich tannins give this wine texture and a velvety mouthfeel reminiscent of Tempranillo-based wines of the Rioja. With a great balance of fruit, tannin and acidity this wine is enjoyable now, yet the balance promises an even greater reward for those who can cellar a bottle or two!
