Zenith Vineyard is located on Zena Road in the Eola-Amity Hills. My blocks sit at around 300 - 350 ft. in

elevation, faces due south, and is composed entirely of the Pommard clone of Pinot Noir. My block is a little more protected from the evening winds from the Van Duzer Corridor, resulting in more supple tannins than other blocks in this vineyard.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked on September 11th, 2015. Once they arrived at the winery, we sorted the grapes and put them in the fermenter for a 5 day cold soak. Due to the warmth and ripeness of the vintage 45% of the stems were included in the fermenter. The un- inoculated fermentation took 5 days to start, and once started it took 14 days to complete. We left the wine in the fermenter for another 12 days for maceration before we drained the wine out of the fermenter. We settled the wine for 24 hours before going to 25% new, 25% twice filled and 50% neutral French oak barrels where the wine aged sur lie for 18 months before bottling.
