In keeping with the winery's commitment to exploring some less-traveled wine roads, this is a coferment of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. Soft, delicate and aromatic, with a pale rose color, it is definitely not in the mainstream of Oregon Pinots. Nonetheless, it's very well crafted, aromatic and delivers plenty of flavor and depth.
