Hundred Suns Old Eight Cut Pinot noir 2019

A tremendous value that has it all: great fruit, silky texture, depth and intrigue, wonderful balance. Oooooh yeah! This hits the nail on Grant's winemaking vision—creating a layered wine of great complexity that is, first and foremost, totally delicious! A blend of their home site Breaker plus Shea, Sequitur, and a secret neighboring Eola-Amity Hills vineyard they're fond of. -Marcus

By design, this wine evolves and changes in glass through a broad spectrum of nuanced characteristics. Opening notes of ripe cranberry and cherry give way to complexities of black licorice, black currant, dried sage, and freshly-tilled earth. The succulent fruit wraps around a framework of delicate tannins and mouth-watering acidity.

The 2019 vintage was a return to a classic, cool Willamette Valley growing season. Dodging rain showers, we harvested our collection of vineyards starting in late September and into mid-October. Winemaking was kept to a bare minimum; fermented with native yeast and 25% whole cluster; aged on the lees for 11 months; gently racked to tank and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Old Eight Cut, named for a diamond cut dating back to the 1400s using simple tools and few cuts to enhance the natural brilliance of the stone without disguising its true nature.

2018 vintage notes

The 2018 vintage continued the trend of warm, sun-soaked Oregon vintages. We picked our vineyards in the key window of late September when we felt the balance between elegance and richness intersected. Winemaking was kept to a bare minimum: fermented with native yeast and 40% whole cluster; aged on the lees for 11 months; gently racked to tank and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Type: Pinot noir
