Tasting notes

2015 L'Autre Pinot Noir:
L’Autre is grown at Temperance Hill Vineyard in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, a bit higher elevation and thus cooler site that delivers a vibrant, restrained, age worthy style. About 20% whole cluster fermentation adds a little funkiness, some structure and spice to its crushed raspberry, strawberry, cinnamon stick goodness. We suspect that once it reaches middle age it too will act like a proper Burgundy in some ways. In our broad rambling portfolio it is clearly The Other. 

In 2009 we were able to source some lovely pinot noir from Temperance Hill Vineyard (thanks Dai) in the Willamette Valley to make L'Autre. Mostly because we love pinot noir, especially from Burgundy, and this plays like that, producing elegant, nuanced, age worthy, earthy, haunting wines that make us happy. Severely limited each vintage. We called it L'Autreand outfitted it with a red label because it is truly an outlier from another state and another state of mind.
