An exquisite value in Willamette Valley Pinot noir and an homage to a super-talented winemaker we lost too soon. Our favorite vintage of this bottling is expressive and charming with satiny, elegantly textured red fruits and hints of orange zest. It’s delicately complex and savory while staying fresh and juicy.
We are still mourning the loss of our friend Jesus Guillen, winemaker for White Rose Estate and Guillen Family wines, who succumbed to an unexpected, brief battle with cancer in November of 2018. Jesus was one of a kind. He was gracious, kind, inspiring, talented, and so much more. We looked forward to his smile. In his far-too-short winemaking career, he left an indelible mark on the Willamette Valley and made some of our favorite Pinot noirs.
With the help of the Oregon wine community, Guillen Family wines will continue at one-third the production level. We’ll support them every bit as much and we hope you’ll join us.
