The Wine

Our 2016 Noir la Grace auction lot is a true field blend. Block 18, located at the top of our Doe Ridge vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, was planted in 2005 with an adventurous spirit. No single clone was selected for the block; we instead planted a randomized mix of Dijon clones with the hope of truly capturing the essence of the terroir. The block is harvested when the various clones reach a harmony of ripeness. After fermentation this wine was aged for 18 months in French oak.

The Winery

The Four Graces is located in a small historic farmhouse in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Our two vineyards are sustainably farmed and well-tended with the goal of producing rich, elegant, delicious and complex wines.
