2020 Rascal Pinot Noir


Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine offers up flavors of Bing cherry with hints of blueberry, boysenberry and plum. Lilac, rose hips and other florals add depth and dimension to the profile of this Oregon Pinot Noir. On the palate, the wine offers a delicate balance of ripe dark fruits with traces of clove, rhubarb and sage. The moderate tannin, round body and concentrated fruit perfectly encapsulate the lower yields of the 2020 vintage.
Vineyard Notes
Multiple high-quality sites throughout Oregon contribute to a well-balanced palate and complex nose. We use multiple sites to create the best representation of Oregon Pinot Noir possible. By using vineyard sites of different aspects, we are able to build a wine with structure and beauty.
Production Notes
2020 began with a cool, wet spring. Budbreak was tracking in a normal pattern, while rain during bloom caused yields to be lower than normal - focusing concentration of berry and flavor development. A cooler than normal July and August helped the fruit ripen slowly and evenly, with a heat bump in the first week of September to help finish out the year. Due to wildfire activity around the region in August and September, final vineyard yields were significantly reduced.
Winemaker Notes
Destemmed into stainless steel fermentation vessels, Cold soak time between 3 and 5 days for extraction of color and flavor, kept at low temperatures to promote flavor development and increase complexity. The wine saw oak contact during malolactic fermentation to develop structural balance, while maintaining true expression of the fruit.
