2012 Côte Est Reserve Pinot Noir
The Côte Est cuvee is sourced from three Eastern-facing blocks of our estate in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, planted with primarily Dijon Clones 114, 115, and 667, and receiving less sunlight exposure than anywhere else on the vineyard. The naturally cooler temperature and Nekia soils (part of the Jory family) provide a layered complexity, darker-fruit character, and natural bright acidity. This three-barrel Reserve selection was made from the finest fruit and cooperages of the vintage.
