This wine is vinified completely dry with full skin contact for 13 days giving it a beautifully round, full taste to match it’s high acidity. Very few wineries in Oregon make rosé from Pinot Gris, so this is a special wine that’s fun to make and to drink.
Grown on unique Laurelwood soil deposited over many millennia, this Pinot Noir consists of Dijon 777, 828, 115, and Pommard grapes farmed on the Ruby Vineyard estate and neighboring vineyards up to 750 feet elevation.
Made from the 40-year-old own-rooted Wädenswil clone of Pinot Noir from a special block of our estate vineyard, this wine is a special selection of Ruby co-owner Flora Habibi’s favorite barrels of the vintage.
This wine is a barrel selection of some of the best neutral and once-filled barrels in our cellar. The intent is to represent the vintage as expressed through different lots from sites throughout the Willamette Valley.
This Pinot Noir honors the legacy of Ruby co-owner Steve Hendricks’ great-great-grandfather, Abijah Hendricks, a pioneer on the first wagon train on the Oregon Trail in 1843. The wine was made from grapes from Timbale & Thyme Vineyard, situated within the 640 acre parcel homesteaded by Abijah and Mary Jane Hendricks. Its label bears the land deed originally granted to the Hendricks Family.
