2017 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 2017 bottling is a riveting expression of the new pattern of Oregon growing seasons - warm and sunny summers followed by temperate, leisurely harvests. In short, the grapes thrive in these conditions. If you're wondering what the new face of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is going to be, it's best to turn to one of the old guard originals.
A tremendous value in hand made, high quality Willamette Valley Pinot Noir! Elegantly textured with spice and tobacco notes on the notes and flavors of raspberry, Bing cherry and spice cake flavors that meld beautifully in the silky finish.
