Vivacious and sleekly layered, with cherry and guava flavors that are highlighted by black tea and cinnamon, finishing with medium-grained tannins.
In 2003, Andrea and James Frey founded Trisaetum in one of the few places where climate, soil, and entrepreneurial spirit combine to produce some of the world’s best wines. Today, the family owned and operated winery in the heart of Oregon’s Ribbon Ridge AVA produces small lots of acclaimed Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling from its three estate vineyards.
Pinot Noir was picked starting September 13th on the Ribbon Ridge Estate; and concluded on October 10th when the last of our fruit from the Coast Range made its way to the winery. More than 25 days between the first pick and the last pick is always a good sign. Given the warm, dry vintage, James opted to start all ferments with native indigenous yeast and employed whole-cluster fermentations fifty percent of the time.
Pairs well with beef, veal, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
