Mixed Club Selections

2015 BoVine Vineyard Pinot Noir

90 Rating Wine Enthusiast

Retail price $28
Club Member price $22.40

This 5 acre vineyard, planted in 2008 is located in Alpine. It includes Pommard, Wadenswill and 667 Pinot Noir clones. “Bound by oak when first poured, this posh pinot has a heavy lining of toffee and spice, squaring off the black-cherry flavors with a firm grip. Grip and cherry-cola flavors take on a more elegant, seamless texture.”

2015 Woodhall Pinot Noir

Retail price $28
Club Member price $22.40

A nose of fresh berry fruit and hints of pie spice introduce the wine – along with an undercurrent of earth and forest floor. Immediately approachable, with commingled Oregon caneberry flavors: ripe blackberry, raspberry and loganberry: fresh and sweet with balanced fruit acidity, deep, smooth tannins, and a long finish of berries laced with cinnamon, star anise and a whisper of white pepper. Layers of varied berry, spice and earth evolve as you taste and the wine opens with exposure to air in the glass.

2015 Pinot Blanc

Retail price $18
Club Member price $14.40

Full-flavored with a mix of lime, lemon, pineapple, pear and rind that gracefully runs into a mid-palate that is full. The finish is elegant with a hint of spice. Fruit was whole cluster pressed. The 20% new French oak fermentation gives this Pinot Blanc rich flavors. The wine went through partial malolactic fermentation which also gives soft creamy notes.

2017 Rosé of Pinot Noir

Retail price $18
Club Member price $14.40

Delicate aromas of rose petals. The dry Rosé provokes ripe strawberry and crisp flavors complemented by a thrill of sour cherries. Finishes with elegant grip and pretty lingering acid. 80% of the Pinot Noir was whole cluster pressed to eliminate skin contact. 20% of the fruit was crushed with overnight skin contact then pressed. This small amount of skin contact extracts a small amount of color and tannin from the grapes. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tank under temperature control to retain fruit flavor.

2015 Reserve Pinot Noir

Retail price $32
Club Member price $25.60

Black cherry fruit with a streak of cola is followed by great texture and complexity. A suggestion of coffee come through on the finish. The vineyard blend fruit was co-fermenter in our 2.5 ton open top wood fermenter. This helps to enhance the extraction of the tannins. Manual punch downs of the caps are done two times a day during fermentation. Barrel aged 15 months in French oak barrels.

2016 Riesling

Retail price $18
Club Members price $14.40

Bergamot orange nose and a crisp bright mouth feel with nice acidity. A creamy lemon chiffon finish. Off – dry Riesling from Equinox Vineyard lies on a steep, southwest-facing hillside in the Crow Valley due west of Eugene. Underlain by deep, red Bellpine soils, this site is high and cool. Similar to the last two vintages, the 2016 growing season continued to push the envelope for defining the new normal in Oregon as one of the earliest on record. The fruit produced resulted in wonderful concentration and complexity with characteristic natural acidity.
