Terroir Notes: This wine is a blend of premium, sustainably farmed vineyard sites selected throughout the Willamette Valley. A high proportion of the grapes come from Hyland Vineyard dating back to 1971. It is one of Oregon's oldest vineyards and located at 600-850 feet in the foothills of the Oregon Coastal Range.

Winemaking Notes: The Pinot is destemmed, crushed, and enjoys a 7-day cold soak. Fermentation and maceration with the skins last for another 18 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs in barrel. The wine ages for 8 months in French oak.

Tasting Notes: Grapesmith & Crusher Pinot Noir is a light-bodied red wine. Enjoy fruit notes of plum, cherry, and raspberry.
