2015 Pinot Noir Taproot

2015 Pinot Noir Taproot
2015 Pinot Noir Taproot

The 'Taproot' bottling is a selection of our winemaker Matt's favorite barrels of the vintage. He largely chooses barrels from our oldest vines, which is a block of Dijon 115 and Wadenswil clone Pinot Noir planted in 1997. The Taproot may also include select barrels from other parts of our estate vineyard, depending on the vintage. However, this emphasis on older vines and the Wadenswil clone give the wine a rustic elegance with the focus on earth, spice, and a backdrop of red fruit, reminiscent of classic Oregon Pinot Noir.

Cellar: a longer barrel program gives this wine a wonderful elegance that makes it equally enjoyable now or later, however it is our belief that will proper storage the wine will continue to improve for 8-10 years.

Pairings: Simpler dishes such as grilled salmon are made for Pinot Noir and that surely won't disappoint with the Taproot. However, venturing out a bit, this wine can pair nicely with the Burgundian dish Coq au vin with Oregon chanterelles as the earthy tones of the wine are an excellent match for any wild mushroom dish. One of our household favorite meals from the days when we used to raise lambs is grilled lamb chops with a garlic and rosemary rub and served with a greek salad or creamy risotto.
