We have made great wines at High Pass before, but this wine is the most complete and complex wine ever made. Ruby with dark berry flavors. It is as refreshing and bright as a young wine can be, with great cellaring potential. Enjoy this wine for the next 10 years, and experience it as it develops
2015 Pinot Noir Union School Vineyard, unfiltered (750 ml) - $50.00
92 Points Wine Enthusiast - only 3 cases left!
Union School is our sister vineyard, planted in 2005. Named after an old school housse that existed in the area. This is the first time we have made a vineyard-designated Pinot Noir from this vineyard. Previously we had sold the grapes to other wineries, or blended the grapes in our Willamette Valley Line Pinot Noir. This vineyard has a higher elevation and a south facing slope. The concave shape of the land heats up the air which rises then helps to create a warm sheltered microclimate. The wine is intensely concentrated with impeccable balance. Only 200 cases were made. Aged in 100% French oak for 10 months, it is drinkable now. With a couple of years aging in the bottle, it will only get better. This wine is loaded with “wine diamonds”, they are really cute.
2016 Pinot Noir Union School Vineyard (750 ml) - $35.00
Designated from our sister vineyard near the estate that is named after an old school house, this wine delivers intense fruit and aromas of spices and sweet tobacco leaves. Balanced and concentrated, the dark berry flavors are nicely supported by the barrel aging. Enjoy now or save for the next 10 years. Clones 777 and Pommard
2016 Pinot Noir, "Zauberberg" (750 ml) - $32.00 SOLD OUT

Young, light and refreshing with flavors of spiced raspberries and tart cherry, this is a great red wine for Fall and Thanksgiving!
