Portlandia was created with the singular aim to make Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris that reflects the richness and beauty of the Willamette Valley all while having fun and not paying too much. We’re fortunate to work with passionate grower partners who support these ideals. Their meticulous care of vineyards shows in the superb quality of the fruit vintage after vintage. The results are Pinots that showcase the best of the Willamette, crafted without any pretense. These are wines made to be enjoyed, guided by our simple philosophy: Play Hard. Work Later. Tasting Notes: Youthful aromas of fresh red cherries and strawberries with hints of nutmeg and cedar box. Flavors are bright and focused with red fruit compote, kirsch, and red plums on the forepalate, finishing with typical Pinot richness and held in suspension with a solid core of acidity. Winemaking: Hand selected lots from cooler Willamette Valley sites were cold-fermented in open-top vats using hand punch downs and aged for 10-12 months in a combination of French and American oak. Hold for up to 3-5 years or drink now.
