Willamette Valley Oregon - La Colina Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
La Colina Vineyard is located in the Dundee Hills AVA and was planted in 1999 to a mixture of Wadenswil and Pommard pinot noir clones. The elevation is 600 ft. and faces Southeast.
Our 2015 Pinot’s benefitted from being completely de-stemmed. It was our intention that this would accentuate terroir and the wines could be stand-alone beauties without the added layering of stem inclusion. It’s true. La Colina is powerful this year. It’s coming of age (now 18 yrs. old) and showing a complex maturity. Each barrel of the 5 had a strong personality and a presence. The Dundee Hills is present to be sure...delicate maple essences combined with earthiness and bright cherry remind us there is no mistaking the dirt! But the concentrated signature of La Colina is the best part…the citrus and tea combined with the angular mouth feel keeps the wine demanding. Never a pushover, La Colina is finding its “voice” and has again delivered a special wine.
