2017 Titan

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

129 cases produced. $40

Named for Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 in D Major “Titan,” the 2017 vintage of Bells Up’s flagship Willamette Valley pinot noir combines 34.8% Chehalem Mountains Pommard (9-year-old vines) grown on wind-blown Loess with 32.6% Dijon clone 115 and 32.6% Dijon clone 777 (17-year-old Yamhill-Carlton vines) grown in sedimentary Willakenzie soil. Aged 12 months in French oak (32% new), this Pinot possesses the classic elegance and delicacy of cooler year Oregon Pinot noir. 

TECHNICAL NOTES

REVIEW: A blend of Pommard, 777 and 115 clones from the Chehalem Mountains and Yamhill-Carlton AVAs, this lively Pinot Noir was aged 12 months in 32% new French oak. Cherry, plum, floral notes and a dusting of herbs interlace with a hint of licorice and sandalwood spice. Decant if imbibing now or hold for future enjoyment. (Source: Ellen Landis, Great Northwest Wine)

REVIEW: The 2017 ‘Titan’ Pinot Noir was sourced from a host of Willamette Valley vineyards. Pretty guava and candied red cherry fill the nose alongside some lighter peat moss undertones. The palate is delicate and nicely textured with layers of light red fruits with kumquat zest and rose water that connect with mineral and earthy accents. Drink 2020-2027 – 90 (Source: Dr. Owen Bargreen, Washington Wine Blog)
