Opening up with floral fruits and a touch of cassias and spice, this Oregon Pinot Noir pops with a silky mouthfeel and alluring body.
Farm grown with sustainability in mind & in the earth, Youngberg Hill Vineyards specializes in Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Located just outside of McMinnville in the North Willamette Valley, the vineyards roll along the hillside at the 20 acre site.
Sprouted from a 4-acre steep, south east slope called the Jordan Block, the 2008 Pinot Noir features rich notes of plum, blueberry and touch of peppery steel. After a few sips, the wine blossoms with Burundian characteristics and a beautiful balance of acidity.
The vineyard’s goal, which is evident is the clarity and full-flavor of their wine, is to leave the earth, vines & even the insects on the property healthier in 50 years than it is today. Fitting with their biodynamic farming practices, Youngberg Hill Vineyards was certified LIVE and Salmon Safe in 2005 and they received certification by the Oregon Wine Board as “Sustainable” in 2010.
And with a lovely inn on the vineyard, this is one piece of clean earth that is easy to stay at for awhile.
