Seven of Hearts Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Similar to the Luminous Hills Estate Grown Pinot Noir, this is a unique wine for the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. As with the prior vintages of this wine since 2016, it is drawn exclusively from Luminous Hills. The benefits of the location (elevation and relative distance to the fires) of Luminous Hills carry to this wine as well. The approach of declassifying also falls to this wine in that fruit that would normally be drawn off for the Special Reserve and Joker’s wines are instead a part of this wine. What is not different from prior vintages is that this wine is selected to be more approachable and accessible from day one. As with the Luminous Hills wine, it doesn’t promise to age for as long as most vintages, and will be best in the first five years, but it is stuffed with aromatics, richness, forward fruit to delight in that time period. Made with 21.8% New French Oak, with the rest used one or more times previously. 13.39% Alcohol. Produced from the following clones of Pinot Noir: 34.5% 115, 25.5% 667, 20% 777, 20% Pommard.
