The Wine

This 2016 Pinot noir is derived from a single parcel on the WillaKenzie Estate. This parcel, located on a terrace near the highest elevation portion of the property, is planted to Dijon clone 667 of Pinot noir. The terroir in this part of the property combined with the use of Dijon clone 667 help to create a wine that offers tremendous flavor density, balance and finesse.

The Winery

Founded in 1992 in Yamhill-Carlton, the 420-acre WillaKenzie Estate is deeply rooted in Oregon wine country. We are the first LIVE-certified winery in the Northwest; stewardship of the land and preservation of the diversity of our local ecosystem are at the forefront of our vineyard management and winemaking practices. Our estate features more than 11 different clones of Pinot noir, enabling blend complexity and texture. Our Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot gris showcase the elegance of the Willamette Valley AVA we call home.
