Above the towns of Yamhill and Carlton grows the stunning 11-acre Carlton Hill Vineyard. Planted in 1999, this vineyard is planted with a pure eastern sun exposure, somewhat noteworthy for Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. We work with the classic Willamette Valley clones of Pommard and Wädenswil from this site, and it always produces a distinctively superlative Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir.
The 2019 Carlton Hill Pinot Noir has aromas of intense wild strawberry, red raspberries, incense, lilac and violets, leading into flavors of red raspberry, pie cherry, earth, ginger, blood orange, lavender and a finish that lingers with fine-textured acidity and tannins.
