2020 Broadley Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
Ever the maverick, Craig Broadley was one of the first visionaries to see the potential in Willamette Valley for fine winemaking, but he wasn't content to run with his contemporaries and plant in the cooler reaches of the northern half of the valley. He bucked that trend (which itself was considered a crazy man's gambit at the time) and planted his vineyard on a warm site in most southerly part of the valley. As gambles go, this one paid off in spades, and since the early 1980s, they've been producing reference point Pinot Noirs from their estate vineyards, as well as a Willamette Valley AVA blend from choice fruit contracts established long ago.
The '20 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of Pinot Noir from the Broadley Estate Vineyard, Zenith Vineyard & Mallaris Vineyard. All of which are highly regarded vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is described over and over again as "elegant, sophisticated and dramatically out-performing its price point..." Flavors of ripe raspberry and cherry that opens to a beautiful mid-palate and lively finish.
