Description

The WillaKenzie Estate, perfectly situated on a series of ridges reminiscent of the hills of Burgundy, is planted with the largest variety of Pinot Noir clones in the Willamette Valley. This provides Winemaker Eric Kramer with a palette of expressive fruit to blend together the Estate Pinot Noir. Plump blackberry, red raspberry, and black cherry flavors are framed by firm yet delicate tannins, juicy acidity and hints of chalky earth. This is a wine you'll want to buy enough of to taste over the next 8-10 years.

About WillaKenzie

Located in Yamhill-Carlton, WillaKenzie is defined by its sense of place. Established in 1991 and named for the marine sedimentary soil series on which the vineyard is planted, the WillaKenzie Estate features a range of benches, ridgelines, elevations, slopes, exposures, and Burgundian plantings, making it one of the most diverse estates in the Willamette Valley. Recognized as Oregon’s first LIVE (Low Input Viticulture & Enology)-certified winery, WillaKenzie remains committed to its sustainable practices. Today, with Winemaker Erik Kramer at the helm, WillaKenzie produces an array of Burgundian varieties driven by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
