Reflective of the volcanic nature of the soil & cooler 2017 vintage, the Pearce Predhomme Hyland Vineyard truly expresses it’s place. Red cherries & raspberries on the nose, very floral - dried violets. Underlying hint of sous-bois. Firm yet delicate tannins. Extremely refined & perfumed, the most delicate Pinot Noir expression we’ve made to date.
"Premiere Cuvee is from the Hyland Vineyard in the McMinnville AVA and as such volcanics, single-vineyard focus and hillside angles play a significant role in the result. Nicholas Pearce and Will Predhomme have been at this negoce thing for more than half a decade now so acumen meeting relationships are growing into their own. The wine is made at the Northwest Wine Company by Laurent Montalieu and this particular pinot noir continues the cured thread of charcuterie knowing and laying with dark fruit. There is this persistent feral feel but also the smooth and glycerin constitution of a wine in seamless construct. Firm and gelid, basaltic and in total control. Just a touch of heat in 2017. Drink 2020-2025."
