Hopewell Hills - (village level) - 1728 bottles produced

100% Pinot Noir from a single parcel of 0.53ha in Hopewell Hills in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA

100% destemmed, and the extraction is light like an infusion, with cold maceration and fermented with indigenous yeast. Matured for 12-15 months in up to 50% new French Burgundian oak.

On a soft southeast facing slope, with a light silt and clay soil sitting on deeply fractured columnar rocks. A softer expression compared to the neighbor Gathered Stones.

The same fruit profile as Gathered Stones, polished and layered, with vibrant black raspberry, savory bay leaf and crushed rock accents that build toward refined tannins.
