2017 Legacy Ruth's Pinot Noir

2017 Legacy Ruth's Pinot Noir

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Named after Bill Stoller’s mother, Ruth’s Pinot Noir is sourced from Section 11.1, our oldest planting of Pommard in the vineyard. Expressing elegance and refinement, delicate aromatics of currant, violet, and anise seed with hints of earth fill the glass. The palate is juicy and vibrant, showing textural nuance on the palate with a satin finish. This is a wine built for longevity, and will further evolve with cellaring.

VINTAGE OVERVIEW 

The 2017 vintage is classically Oregon. Despite a cold winter and cooler than normal spring, ideal weather after flowering created a healthy fruit set, with as much as 20% more berries per cluster than average. Summer was dry and hot, but vines saw little drought stress. By September, everything was on track for a traditional, “normal” Oregon harvest in the Willamette Valley, with Pinot Noir exhibiting outstanding quality. Harvest produced a bumper crop with intense flavor, and perfect sugar and acid levels.
