Tasting notes

L’Autre, sourced from Temperance Hill Vineyard in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, delivers a bright, vibrant, yet earthy, age worthy style. A third whole cluster in the fermentation adds some funkiness, structure and Asian spice to its fresh crushed raspberry, cranberry and wild strawberry flavors. At its peak, pinot noir has the unique ability to transport us to The Other Place.

Food Pairing: Roasted salmon with chanterelle butter or wild mushroom pot pie.

Movie Pairing: Close Encounters of the Third Kind

In 2009 we were able to source some lovely pinot noir from Temperance Hill Vineyard 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'Autre and outfitted it with a red label because it is truly an outlier from another state and another state of mind.
