July 2019 Beacon Wine Club Selections

Mixed Club Selections

2017 Pinot Noir

Retail price $22
Club Member price $17.60

New Release

2017 was a true cool climate Oregon year. Normal temperatures with warm days and cool nights and no big heat spikes. Some precipitation during the growing season kept the fruit damp at times resulting in slow ripening. Comprised of grapes from five of our vineyards, all the vines are considered old vines, ranging in age from 40 to 11 years. The blend of vineyards give the wine complexity, bright fruit flavors, soft tannins with nice earthy notes. We pair this Pinot Noir with a fatty fish or delicate mushroom dish.
Production: 821 cases

Vines from Hoot & Howl Vineyard in Philomath as well as from Pheasant Hill Vineyard in Rogue Valley. The wine was aged in American and French oak for 20 months. The Oregon Cabernet Sauvignon is lower in alcohol and higher in acidity than California Cabernet. This natural balance give a lighter body with dark fruits and soft tannins. The acidity of the wine make for great food pairing. Amazing with rack of lamb drizzled in a rosemary sauce.

2016 Hang Time Riesling

Retail price $18
Club Members price $14.40

New Release

All of the grapes used to make this wine come from Mary’s Peak Vineyard in Philomath and Equinox Vineyard in Crow Valley (west of Eugene). Riesling is our winemaker Matt’s favorite white wine varietal. Hang Time Riesling allowed the fruit to hang longer on the vine then normal to achieve some Nobel Rot on the fruit to develop more riper stone fruit flavors. Riesling does well with late harvest by retaining great amounts of acidity. The German call this Riesling style Spätlece which is sweeter than a regular Riesling normally but gives richer more concentrated flavors with lots of acidity to balance out the pallet and not taste sweet.
Production: 64 cases

Summer tasting room hours are Thursday – Sunday Noon-5 pm. Please pick up your wine during tasting room hours.
