Our 2021 Jerusalem Hill is a harmonious, aromatic blend of lavender, raspberry, and a touch of nori. On the palate, this Pinot Noir unfolds with richness, boasting notes of cherries, dates, and plums. A weightier offering in our portfolio, it showcases more defined structural elements, exuding power, and muscularity while retaining an enticing juiciness. Reminiscent of a Wild West wine, it achieves a remarkable balance with resolved tannins adding to the overall finesse. This Pinot Noir pairs exceptionally well with dishes like cocoa-dusted pork loin or carnitas tacos.

100% Pinot Noir
Harvested from our lowest elevation vineyard located 16 miles south of the Dundee Hills, our Jerusalem Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir hails from the Eola-Amity winegrowing region. This unique vineyard is rooted in rich Woodburn sedimentary soils deposited into the valley during the Missoula Floods some 13,000 to 15,000 years ago.
If you're out wandering this vineyard, keep an eye out for the graceful presence of a wild blue heron gracing our property. Back in the day, our vineyard used to be an orchard, and plenty of birds still call it home. This magnificent creature has established its home here for countless years and keeps a watchful eye on our cherished vineyards. Jerusalem Hill Vineyard is known for its significant wind exposure that showcases the impacts of vintage variations. In sunnier years, the wines from this vineyard lean towards a fruit-centric profile, offering vibrant and luscious flavors. On the other hand, cooler vintages tend to bring out more forest-like, savory, spicy, and leather notes in the wines.
