We have a little known bottling in 2010 that’s going directly to restaurants – one restaurant to be precise – as a glass pour. Meaning, it’s priced low so a lovely restaurant like Ken’s Artisan Pizza will put it on their menu by the glass.
So for $9 a glass or (I believe) $36 a bottle, you can drink our mystery wine – the 2010 Vincent Pinot Noir Willamette Valley. What’s in this special bottling? Two barrels from one fermenter of mostly 777 clone topped up with a bit of Wadenswil. Naturally fermented, neutral oak aged, bottled without filtration, all Ribbon Ridge fruit but labeled as Willamette Valley for simple appeal.
This is fleshy, slightly wild Pinot Noir that’s not for keeping. It’s perfect for washing down some of Portland’s best pizza, so get down to Ken’s in SE Portland soon. Our 30-something cases remaining will go quickly.
