Stoller Pinot Noir 2021, Willamette Valley, OR
Bill Stoller was born on the property and raised on the family farm outside of Dayton, Oregon. Bill’s decision to transform the family farm into a vineyard stemmed from much more than wishful thinking. With the help of Burgundian winemaker Patrice Rion and local vineyard consultants, Bill confirmed that the very factors that made this land a poor choice for turkey farming were perfect for an award-winning vineyard. In 1995, Bill planted 10 acres each of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, combining the experience of consulting viticulturists with innovative vineyard techniques in order to maximize the grape’s quality. Crafted exclusively from estate fruit, the Stoller Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is sourced from a collection of premier sites in the Willamette Valley. This wine is designed to embody the spirit of the region. Showcasing a myriad of Pinot Noir clones and Willamette Valley AVAs, this wine spent almost a year of élevage. The result is an approachable wine that can be enjoyed during its youth. The nose is bright, showing notes of Bing cherry that is highlighted with hints of minerality, savory herbs, and baking spice. The palate is structured by fine-grain tannins that carry a beautiful vibrancy through the finish.
