Since 1996, when we planted Harbinger Vineyard high in the Chehalem Mountains, we’ve watched the site struggle to produce a lean expression of Pinot noir in all but the warmest vintages. With over 2400 vines per acre, this single-guyot trellised site is densely planted by Oregon Standards. The top of the vineyard is about 800 feet above sea level, providing cool nights and slow ripening of the 100% Pinot noir plantings. In the particularly cool vintage of 2011, a switch went on in Scott’s brain...sparkle it! Henceforth, our approach to this 21-year old vineyard has been to focus on classic Méthode Champenoise.  In 2015 we decided to increase the production by adding some of our Tuscowallame Estate Pinot Noir, which comes from our highest block and contains a mixture of clones.  Both vineyards are farmed identically.   The base wine ferments and rests en tirage for about 3 years, before disgorgement and dosage to complete the wine for final bottling.
