2016 DEUX VERT VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
Kyle's Pick for Complexity and Structure
This wine has a heady aroma and intense black fruit profile. Deux Vert Vineyard, originally planted by Mike and Patty Green (get it- “Two Greens?”) and now owned by Quinn and Debbie Stepan, is where this Pinot Noir and our Viognier comes from in the Yamhill Carlton viticultural area. The low-yielding Pommard and Wadenswil clones from this vineyard are located in a warm block at about 300-390’ elevation.
