Vintage Notes:  Winter in 2014 was non-existent, resulting in an earlier than normal bud break. Ideal conditions during bloom led to a large fruit set for the Willamette Valley. Luckily, the weather during the season cooperated and the vines could handle a slightly larger crop load, which for the Brittan Vineyard, meant about two tons per acre. The mornings were quick to heat up and the nights slow to cool down. It is quite rare to have a vintage with both quality and quantity, but 2014 turned out to be exactly that. These rich wines show the finesse, restraint and buoyancy of great winemaking in a great year.

Tasting Notes: The 2014 Puncheon Pinot noir could only come from our coast range hillside… a singular wine with aromas of ash, fermented tobacco, sweet dark fruits, plum, cardamom and marigold petal. The vibrant, youthful palate is tremendous juicy with just a hint of sweet oak, loads of acid, a substantial, complete midpalate and broad, lengthy finish. Dark, intense, savory.

Production Notes: The fruit for the 2014 vintage was picked in mid-September and fermented in open-top puncheons with 15% whole cluster fruit. The wine was aged for 12 months in once filled French oak barrels.
