Mark Eastburn owns this vineyard on Parrett Mountain, just a half-hour from downtown Portland. He has planted 15 acres of Pinot Noir clones 114, 115 and 777, and the wines are made by Isabelle Dutartre. This superb Pinot Noir opens with aromas of cedar, plum, cherry, mint and chocolate, followed by vibrant flavors of Rainier cherry, strawberry and plum. Bright acidity and modest tannins make this a superb wine to drink now or hold for a half-decade or more.
