This single vineyard cuvée is crafted exclusively with Pinot noir from Paloma Vineyard. Paloma is the home vineyard of Luisa Ponzi and, her husband, Eric Hamacher. It is a beautiful site, sitting at 880’ elevation and facing east, it is nestled in the Chehalem Mtns.
"Complex aromatics of black peppercorn, powdered bakers chocolate, amarena cherries, lavender, roasted coffee, cured meats and cassis precede a spicy palate with notes of juniper, coriander, thyme, chicory and black olive. The tannins are beautiful, slightly rustic and very long."
--Winemaker Luisa Ponzi
