A near twin to 2014, the 2015 vintage brought another extraordinary growing season to the Willamette Valley. it was a warm, dry season that provided concentrated and well-balanced fruit. Viticulturists posit that abundant yields in 2014 paved the way for another big harvest in 2015. Despite a fast and hot season, the vines showed no signs of tiring. With the wines showing balance between fruit, sugar and acidity, the harmony of the 2015 vintage sets the stage for some stellar Oregon Wines.
Named after the man who stole the clippings in the middle of the night, nothing says Hyland Pinot Noir quite like the Coury Clone. Attacks with aromas of cherries and wild strawberries. The mouth is graceful and consistent year over year with tea and plum notes and very noteworthy spice at the end, which beautifully lingers on the palate seconds after each sip.
