2016 Murto Vineyard
Dundee Hills, Pinot Noir
Murto Vineyard Is located just a few minutes down the road from Holstein Vineyard in the hills of Dundee. Their 30-year-old Pommard vines face southwest at 750 ft elevation. This was our last pick of the 2016 harvest and the resulting wine is lush, ripe, and full of personality. As usual with this site, we incorporate about 30% whole-cluster during fermentation, adding structure, texture and endearing qualities to best reflect this legendary site.
Tasting Notes: Aromatics of pomegranate, rhubarb, and fresh cut herbs. Remnants of red tea and cedar planks mixed with strawberry jam. Distinguishable elegance, grace and expansiveness. Soft and lush throughout the entirety of the pallet.
