Medium bodied wine that begins with the classic dried hibiscus and crushed rose petal that have come to be the trademark of our site in the Chehalem Mountains. On the pallet there seems to be a concentrated pie cherry fruit presence with a Christmas spice which trails off to a very long finish. The sweet fruit and barrel spice notes continue long after the wine has left the mouth inviting another sip.
Planted in 1991, the 50-acre Hawks View Vineyard offers the ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The eastern-facing slope and Laurelwood soils, combined with dry farming and hand harvesting, allow for wines of great character and distinction.
The 2017 Jack's Pinot Noir is in short a wine that shows incredible fidelity to the vineyard while at the same time exhibiting a delicious precociousness not seen in other vintages.
