CHERRY HILL WINERY ESTATE PINOT NOIR 2013
Nestled in the magical Eola Hills of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Cherry Hill is a true boutique winery: producing super premium Pinot Noir, by hand, in this classic fruit heartland of the Pacific Northwest.
The area has been known as Cherry Hill as far back as the local lore runs in this young corner of America. Wild cherries have always grown there.
Cherry Hill Winery lies directly atop the 45th parallel -- halfway between the equator and the North Pole, at the same Pinot-friendly latitude as Burgundy. Cherry Hill is a 150-acre estate, with 90 of those acres planted to pommardand dijon clones of pinot noir.
The Cherry Hill Winery Estate Pinot Noir is handcrafted using the Pommard clone of Pinot Noir. For added depth and complexity selected barrels of Dijon clone Pinot Noirwere blend together with this wine. 694 cases produced
The fruit for this beautiful wine was hand picked from our best blocks where yields are restricted to two tons per acre. The grapes were destemmed and gravity fed to our small fermenters, where each lot was carefully monitored. The wine was aged in French oak for eighteen months. It is delicate with beautiful color and texture. This elegant wine tastes of red berry fruits and cassis, integrated with hints of anise and wood spice. Like all things of beauty, this wine will improve with age, but it is a beauty now!
"Red Focused, light, lively and savory, with distinctive mineral notes coursing through the cherry and raspberry flavors, persisting on the finish with finesse and flair. Drink now through 2023." – HS
