"Pale ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Hyland has a core of red currants, red berries and blackberries with dried leaves, pipe tobacco, scorched earth, tar and cured meat aromas plus accents of blood orange, potpourri, tobacco and sweet spices. Medium-bodied, silky and intense, it offers great layering of spice, amaro, earth and berry fruits with addicting freshness and a long, nuanced finish."
"This has such complex spice, earth, charcuterie, cola and vibrant red cherries with a subtly leafy and earthy edge. Impressive. The palate carries a bold array of rich red and dark cherries with a composed, fresh and neatly defined, athletic feel. Holds the finish so well."
"This savory Double Zero wine was sourced from the oldest Hyland block, planted in 1972. Whole berries were fermented in a terracotta clay amphora and then aged 16 months in 20% new French oak barrels. Aromatic with sharp notes of cranberry, strawberry and raspberry, the fruit is underscored with a dry minerality and a touch of lemon."
Produced from Block 1D planted in 1972 in bright red volcanic soil of the the Hyland vineyard in the McMinnville AVA, our 2017 Hyland single vineyard Pinot Noir is as close as you'll get to the power of Gevrey-Chambertin in Oregon.
