Owned by lovable character, David Polite, the vineyard boasts a regulation sized croquet court. We’ve maintained this relationship for over twenty years and feel so fortunate to continue to work with such beautiful fruit and humans. Carlton Hill’s east facing slopes pick up the early morning sun, lending gentle ripening and shady relief in the hot afternoons. Sustainably farmed, this vineyard consistently delivers outstanding Pinot Noir known for robust, red-fruited characteristics. Its weaves ripe, exotic elements with youthful forwardness.
Willakenzie Series, formed 8,000 feet below the ocean surface, is the best-known sedimentary soil in the Willamette Valley. Exposed when tectonic upheaval lifted the seabed and created the Cascade Mountains, these dusty, mustard-tinted soils are responsible for making powerful, complex wines. With very little water retention, vines are forced to establish extraordinarily deep roots systems in search of water. The resulting wines are inherently age-worthy with dense dark fruit, violet floral aromas and sweet spice and tobacco aromas common signature elements.
