Review:

Opens with aromas of nectarine, Bartlett pear, jonquil and sur lie characters. A full bodied palate with a lush entry of stone fruit and honey gives way to a lengthy, sumptuous finish of slate and lemon. A small amount of rain pressured a partial early harvest and then warmed up nicely allowing the vast majority of fruit to ripen late into season allowing for depth in quality, aromatics and balanced mouth feel.

09 was balanced, warm and ripe, a very similar vintage to 05 but not quite as warm as 06. A small amount of rain pressured a partial early harvest and then warmed up nicely allowing the vast majority of fruit to ripen late into season allowing for depth in quality, aromatics and balanced mouthfeel. - the winery

1978 pinot gris planting, one of the oldest existing vineyards in Oregon for gris. Further, the Cattrall vineyard heralds the beginning of the organic vineyard movement in Willamette Valley as Bill and Tom Cattrall began organic farming in 1973 and are now Tilth Organically certified.

Previous Vintage Tasting Notes

A crisp dry wine with peaches, mango, and vanilla on the nose, the flavors are crisp and lemony with layers of toast and a strong finish. Made from Organic grapes grown in the Coastal Foothills west of Corvallis, Oregon. Half barrel fermented, nicely integrated hints of oak, no malolactic.
