Three sites – including Tualatin Estate Vineyard, Elton Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills and the 1983 planting by founder Jim Bernau – come together for this gorgeous 2016 Pinot Noir. It launches with cherry, spice, and forest floor aromas. A sip yields sweet flavors of cherry, pomegranate, raspberry and red currant, smooth tannins and a nip of Craisin at the end. It calls for venison tenderloin or rack of lamb, and it received a gold medal at the 2019 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
