Hibiscus Flower, Laurelwood Soil, Strawberry Rhubarb
The Muirfield block was the first planted on our property in the eighties. This type of self-rooted Pinot Noir is disappearing due to Phylloxora disease in the Willamette Valley, and we are fortunate to have some original plantings of Pinot that still produce this quality of wine, particularly as we see more Oregon vineyards of this type being replaced by root stock plantings. This wine remains the finest example of what our vineyard can do in any given year when everything goes right.
"This wine was made from our finest estate grown grapes, our Muirfield block, planted to own-rooted Wadenswil clone. The Muirfield Block Pinot Noir reflects our highest quality grapes selected down to the individual berry, new barrels, and extremely low availability. It is sure to be a great addition to a special occasion dinner." - Winemaker, Don Crank III
