2015 Flanerie Vineyard Rose' of Pinot Noir
Guava, raspberry and candied grapefruit. Buoyant mouthfeel with lots of crushed red fruit and nice crisp finish.
2014 was the warmest growing year, until 2015 happened. We picked the Pommard Pinot Noir for this wine on the early side to help give it a balanced, crisp finish.

The 2015 rosé was hand harvested from the Flanerie vineyard brought back to the winery and whole cluster pressed to stainless steel tank. Fermentation of this 100% Pommard clone was long and slow, finishing in late March of 2016. Aged for an additional 1.5 months sur lie our rosé gained body and richness that are atypical to most from the Willamette Valley. We wanted to show the ample fruit of the 2015 vintage and created a wine that stands out with a lush palate and high tone strawberry and guava aromatics. Because of it’s unique nature we think this wine will become more complex with a extended cellaring.
