2014 Calkins Lane Pinot noir

75.00

This 2014 Pinot noir offers notes of elderberry and juniper berry on the nose, with a dusty, mineral component. The palate shows bright acidity with flavors of wild strawberry and vanilla.

Calkins Lane Vineyard is a 40-acre Adelsheim estate site which adjoins our winery and tasting room. It sits just inside the boundary of the Chehalem Mountains American Viticultural Area (AVA). The road after which this single vineyard wine is named honors a family who settled in the area in the 1890s and lived here into the 1960s. This vineyard, on sedimentary soils, is our lowest elevation, warmest, and one of our earliest harvest sites.
