This vineyard designate has distinctive and palate-penetrating pine needle accents. It’s tight and focused, mixing cranberry and tart raspberry fruit with a light suggestion of truffly umami. The balance and complexity argue for further bottle age. It wraps up with well-ripened tannins that add touches of black olive and black tea. PAUL GREGUTT

Gregory Ranch
Planted 2007     *     Yamhill-Carlton AVA     *     Elevation: 460ft

The Gregory Ranch is a 21-acre vineyard planted on a 100+ acre property in the forested foothills of the coast range in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The vineyard is surrounded by old growth Douglast Fir, pine, and large sprawling oak trees. Wild elk and black bear roam the woods, and the forest floor is laced with truffles and mushrooms of all type. Always one of our most robustly earthy and tannic Pinot Noirs.

Josh Bergström’s Notes

Always needing years to best express itself, this vintage from Gregory Ranch is no exception, and it will reward patience for years to come as it’s tannic structure and complexity of wound-up aromatics and flavors show so much promise. Drink Now with decanting or pairing with grilled steaks or slow-cooked/braised stews with lame, beef, or game, or hold for 10+ years.
