Ponzi, "Tavola," (Willamette Valley, Oregon): A fabulous dry medium-bodied Pinot Noir boasting medium tannins as well. Beautiful fruit flavors of spiced cherry, red raspberry, and hints of clove and plum make this a perfect wine to sip while enjoying the fall foliage. Serve this wine with lean meats such as filet mignon or pork tenderloin.

Burning the Midnight Oil

Posted Fri, October 28, 2011 in All Posts

It's a fast and furious Harvest this year. The sunny dry weather this past week has allowed a good portion of the fruit to come in, and it looks stunning. Yesterday boasted the biggest burst of fruit entering the crush pad. The crew processed an impressive 130 tons in one day. That must be a record!

The first of the Pinot Noir went to barrel yesterday as well. The winery is filling up with small lot fermentors of Pinot that will soon head to barrel as well.
