Pike Road Pinot Noir is hand-picked and hand-sorted then fermented in small open-top stainless steel tanks. The wine is barrel aged in 100% French oak barrels for 10 months. Pike Road sources the best grapes and then takes a gentle approach to preserve the inherent qualities of the fruit. Pike Road Pinot Noir is made from 100% Willamette Valley fruit. Primarily sourced from six estate vineyard sites, Pike Road also includes smaller lots of Pinot Noir fruit grown by trusted partners here in the Willamette Valley. By integrating fruit from multiple locations, Pike Road gains in complexity. The PIke Road Pinot Noir is the color of garnet with aromas of dark cherry, baking spice, violets and savory notes that entice. The palate offers more pie cherry forming a juicy core alongside hints of leather. Firm tannins dance around to give a long finish.
