Gothic's single-vineyard Pinot noirs bear the Middle English title "Eldritch," or "otherworldly." This bottling is from the historic Hyland Vineyard, planted in 1971, just five years after Pinot noir was introduced to the Willamette Valley. The vineyard still has pre-phylloxera, own-rooted, old-vine Pinot noir vines, and lies exposed to cool maritime winds and coastal influences via the Van Duzer. Elevations of 600 to 800 feet and the volcanic soils of the McMinnville sub-AVA provide ideal growing conditions for this special cool-climate wine.

Inspired by Gothic tales of the 18th century, Gothic is a collection of cool-climate wines from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. They are individual wines, driven by the terroir of their remote vineyards. Ripe and balanced, they remain indicative of the regions in which they are grown. The palate and structure of the wines are vibrant and food-driven, modeled on classic, old-world styles of non-interventionist winemaking.
