Pike Road Pinot Noir 2017
Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon
The summer of 2017 was warm and dry, leading to excellent flavor development in the fruit, but Pike Road thinned the crop considerably to ensure concentration and ripeness. Harvest was staggered because of the October rains, which meant long days for their crew during the windows of sun. 2017 wasn’t an easy year to farm, but the fresh, fully developed flavors of the vintage make it worth the hard work.
