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.
Expressive and approachable, this wine displays layers of cranberry, pomegranate and plum followed by notes of violet and toasted almond skin. A hint of dried cherry leads immediately to an impression of wet earth and allspice with an underlying touch of white pepper. A generously red-fruited palate is buoyed by supple tannins and a plush finish.
