100% Pinot Noir - Bieze Vineyard - Eola Amity Hills AVA

Ritner and Nekia soils (with foundation of volcanic basalt)

Blend of Calera clone (rare) with the more common Pommard

Single-vineyard juice from volcanic soil - this bottling sees whole cluster fermentation which allows for full expression of the site. Crunchy cherry, cedar shavings and spice.

The Bieze vineyard is known for it's ideal positioning along the Van Duzer corridor, a break in the coastal range producing nightly cool breezes - a welcome force after sunny afternoons. The property is a total of 40 acres, with 25 devoted to grapes. The idyllic estate also features 10 acres of pasture and a spring-fed pond.

I'm thinking duck l'orange for the pairing.
