The Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a collection of barrels from benchmark vineyards across the valley, including our own estate, declassified to make one compelling blend representing the finest expression of the vintage. Throughout history, particularly in Europe, iconic brands have chosen to declassify wines. Declassified wines can give consumers entry into some of the greatest terroirs in the world. Each barrel of this wine receives the same immaculate care and attention to detail as the wines chosen to go into our Mt. Jefferson Cuvee and single vineyard wines only crafted to represent the larger Willamette Valley AVA. Aged in 13% new French oak.
