2018 Titan – NEW
Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
111 cases produced. $40 | NEW RELEASE
The 2018 release of our flagship pinot noir, “Titan,” blends 41.4% Chehalem Mountains Pommard (10-year-old vines) grown on wind-blown Loess with 29.3% Dijon Clone 115 and 29.3% Dijon Clone 777 (18-year-old Yamhill-Carlton vines) grown in sedimentary Willakenzie soil. Named for Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 in D Major “Titan,” the wine aged 12 months in French oak (38% new). The 2018 growing season was characterized by consistent warm, dry days and cool nights, resulting in rich fruit flavor, balanced structure, and deep color development. From this, 2018 Titan shows a bold, fruit-forward character with balanced structure and acidity that may require a year in the bottle (or some time in the decanter) to show at its peak.TECHNICAL NOTES
