Sineann Pinot Noir 2014, Schwab Vineyard, Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon

“Sineann (shuh-NAY-uhn) is a small producer of highly intense wines made from grapes from the finest vineyards in the region. Almost all our wines are single-vineyard designated, with low crop levels to ensure that the best characteristics of the varietal and terroir shine through. Our meticulous approach to winemaking – minimal processing, aging in French oak – helps us preserve the character of each wine we create. The result are wines that both we and our growers take great pride in.” This Pinot Noir comes off Dwight and Lis Schwab’s vineyard overlooking the Willamette River. The vines are meticulously well managed. The wine is a blend of the three clones planted on the site. It is dark, flavorful and lingers beautifully on the palate.
