J. Christopher Bieze Vineyard Pinot Noir
The Bieze vineyard sits high up in the Eola Hills, where it benefits from cool ocean breezes that flow through the Van Duzer Corridor, a break in the Coast Range. This allows for longer hang time, as the grapes ripen more slowly while retaining superb acidity. The Pommard clone of Pinot is grown here in soils formed from layers of volcanic basalt. The 2019 bursts out of the glass with very energizing fruit aromas. On the palate it has an energetic structure and a vibrant finish.
