Chehalem Mountains "Highland Close" (1st Expression level) - 1980 bottles produced.

100% Pinot Noir from a 0.76 hectares parcel in the Chehalem Mountains - AVA.

The largest parcel farmed by Rose & Arrow.

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.

This vineyard boasts basalt rocks of every kind: black, red (oxidized), and white (volcanic ash).

The high elevation and extremely rocky soil of this parcel gives the wine a distinctive, energetic nose, followed by a symphony of mineral flavors with crushed red fruit.
