The 27-acre Thistle Vineyard is located on the northern section of the Dundee Hills AVA on an east-southeast facing slope. For the past 10 years we have sourced from this beautiful organic vineyard site. In 2014 we decided to make our first single vineyard pinot noir from Thistle Vineyard and the result is a stunning wine with flavors of earth from the rich Jory volcanic soil melded with dark black cherry notes.
100% French oak barrel-aged for 16 months, with 35% new barrels.
