Hyland Vineyard Pinot Noir

2021 McMinnville, Willamette Valley, OR
Located in the McMinnville sub-AVA, Hyland Vineyard is one of Oregon's largest and oldest vineyards. The remote site sits in the eastern foothills of the Coast Range, benefiting from cooler temperatures in the summer and warmer temperatures in the winter. The vineyard's established plantings thrive in the soil, microclimate, and high elevation unique to this site, which consistently produces fruit with structured tannins and bright acidity. Founding Winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash has been sourcing Pinot Noir and Riesling from the vineyard since 2008.
This wine opens with black cherry and pepper notes. Layers of toasted oak and spice mix with dark fruit that melts into a confectionary finish.
