Triple Black Slopes Pinot Noir

Triple Black Slopes


Triple Black Slopes is the steepest vineyard on our estate, with some sections exhibiting a 45- degree aspect. The thin tops soils and exposure in Triple Black Slopes results in plants that produce smaller berries and grapevines that are comparatively lower in vigor than other parts of the estate. As a result, the wines from this part of the property can be very powerful and complex. Triple Black Slopes is comprised of four different parcels of Pinot Noir that are separated from one another by small canyons.

Alcohol: 13.4%  |  pH: 3.64  |  TA: 5.1 g/L

Composition: 100% Pinot Noir

The 2016 vintage in the Willamette Valley was marked by a moderate, dry growing season that resulted in wines of tremendous flavor intensity, balance and finesse. This complex and expressive Pinot Noir offers notes of fresh black plum, anise, baking spice and a hint of gaminess. Those flavors carry through to a palate that offers power, structure, flavor intensity and tremendous length.
