From our coolest and only vineyard site in the Eola-Amity Hills comes the Crawford Beck Pinot noir. Situated at the mouth of the Van Duzer Corridor, Crawford Beck boasts the longest hang time of any of our vineyards and provides a beautiful counterpoint to the rest of our portfolio.
The 2017 Crawford Beck is a vibrant, rich expression of its vineyard. The wine opens with notes of white raspberry, anise, confectionery, and a hint of borage. Marionberry moves from the nose tot he palate, accented by salted plum, sage, and nectarine. The wine is broad with great depth and structure.
