The finest Pinot
Noir we offer, Citation Oregon is created by looking beyond limiting local
geographic boundaries to attain the highest quality possible. After scouring the farthest reaches of the
state and our own vineyards and valley, the most promising vineyard blocks were
selected and fermented in small vessels.
Punched-down twice a day by hand, the wine was later gently pressed to
French oak barrels to age for the next fifteen months. Careful selection of the best barrels
produced a small quantity of deep, luscious Pinot Noir.
Bottle-aged 9 years before release, the 2005 Citation
Pinot Noir has developed the complexity only achieved with great patience and has
proven to be a truly world-class wine.
Garnet in color, its youthful aromas of black cherry and cinnamon meld
with those developed in the bottle, sliced mushroom and forest floor. Mouth-filling flavors of cherry pie and
vanilla sit atop the wine’s still-maturing silty tannins as faint echoes of oak
linger on the finish.
