Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Remarkably rich with dark red berries, cherries and warm spices, the nose of our 2015 Pinot noir, Zenith Vineyard is balanced with fresh floral aromas. Solidly structured with broad ripe tannins, concentrated dark fruits, woodland spices and hints of bay and coriander. Nicely balanced with vibrant acidity, the savory tannins extend throughout the finish. This may be the most complex and ageable wine from Zenith I have produced. Age through the winter and begin enjoying in Spring 2018, it will continue to fascinate through 2035.

Vineyard Notes
Zenith is centrally located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA 11 miles NW of Salem, Oregon. The grapes for this wine come from two older blocks planted on a gentle hillside on old sedimentary soil.
Winemaker Notes
Vintage Notes: The summer of 2015 started off with intense heat that faded off into a very warm and sunny season. Harvest began early with us first picking fruit on September 2 in cooler conditions. Yields were about 15% higher than normal and fruit was as perfect as I have seen. We continued to harvest throughout September and finished by the end of the month. The balance of flavor, tannin, acid, and sugar were as perfect as I have seen in 29 years. I am excited to see how the wines develop.
