v. 2012 an·thol·o·gy club

As a member of the an·thol·o·gy club, you are receiving a selection of our 2012 Pinot noirs. These works of art debut as our 7th release of the an·thol·o·gy club and, as always, features wines chosen from our library after 10 years of cellaring. With limited membership availability, this is our most select club and we are thankful to have you as a part of it. 

When I think back to the 2011 vintage, what always comes immediately to mind is picking in November! November? Yes, November. That was a first and a last. 2011 was a vintage of records and extremes as the coolest and latest ever in Oregon.

Some considered the 2011s a bit lean upon release. We found them textured, elegant and nuanced. As we’ve tasted them across the decade, they’ve taken on weight, complexity and persistency. Our recent tasting at 10 years of age found them positively captivating and exactly the kind of wines we love to drink as the days get a little cooler and we seek wines with greater texture, layers and character. Donna Morris, Proprietor

2012 Winderlea Ana Vineyard Pinot noir

2012 Winderlea Ana Vineyard Pinot noir

We have been working with the Ana vineyard since our first vintage in 2006. Now known as Weber, the wines from this site have been beloved for over ten years.

The floral nose of violets, magnolias and lavender remain vibrant upon Ana’s 10th year.  Earth notes of spice, mushroom and forest floor combine beautifully with plum, cherries, fig, and rose hips.  We’ll be drinking this over the holidays, but believe it will cellar well through 2027.

Pinot noir

2012 Winderlea Vineyard Pinot noir

Our estate vineyard, originally planted in 1974, is comprised of 16 planted acres of Pinot noir.  Our flagship wine, Winderlea Vineyard Pinot noir, exemplifies what this stunning site is all about.

Vibrant aromatics continue to be a hallmark of the 2012 Winderlea Vineyard at 10 years.  Black cherries, plum and red and black currants mingle with hints of cedar, baking spices and orange zest in the mouth.  Perfectly rounded tannins and acidity deliver a wonderfully balanced simply exquisite finish.  Drinking beautifully and cellar potential through 2027.

2015 Winderlea Legacy Pinot noir

2012 Winderlea Legacy Pinot noir

2012 Winderlea Legacy Pinot noir

Our estate vineyard in the Dundee Hills is comprised of 13 different blocks planted across 16 acres.  The Legacy, our most precious wine, is an exclusive selection of own-rooted Pinot noir sourced from vines planted between 1974 and 1976.

The 2012 was the prettiest of our wines at release, and continues to show those same characteristics.  Rose, strawberries, and cherries on the nose couple with red plums, cranberries, mango and citrus notes.  Elegant and silky when released in 2013 and age has mellowed it perfectly.  There is also a freshness to it now, that we don’t recall upon release.  

Drinking divinely ~ and should cellar thru 2030 (but why wait!)
