Beaux Freres
Second Generation

Horsetail Pinot noir 07

Ken Wright Cellars
2008 Pinot noirs

Avalon Wine

 

Jared and Mikey Etzel, two sons of Beaux Freres' Mike Etzel, have released their first Pinot noir. Horsetail Pinot noir is the first wine from Beaux Freres' second generation. And so far, it's the Rookie of the Year.

 

Ken Wright, the eponymous Oregon winemaker whose Ken Wrght Cellars is perhaps Oregon's best known winery, has released his 2008 Pinot noirs. We have a large selection his Pinot noirs from this outstanding vintage, usually sold only as futures.

Fragrant aromas of lilac, cinnamon, and pretty red fruit perfume with a background of dried herbs. Fresh yet rich flavors caress your tongue - purple flower-accented sweet cherry, sarsaparilla, brambly raspberry, and a creamy earth note. The finish resonates with pure Pinot noir character. - Marcus

 

Jared explains the choice of name - "The "Horsetail" name comes from the Equisetum hyemale 'Horsetail Fern', a plant that is used in biodynamic vineyards. The plant is made into a silica spray that enhances light absorption."

 

The 2007 Horsetail was made from Broadley Vineyard and Wahl Vineyard fruit. It is a mix of Dijon cones (Broadley) and the Courey Clone (Wahl). The Courey clone is a rare upright clone, old vines grown upright. The Courey Clone in the Wahl Vineyard was planted by the same respected vineyard manager who planted several blocks of the Beaux Freres Vineyard.
