"The winery's lineup of single vineyard Pinots features sites rarely if ever seen elsewhere, but all are deserving of extra attention. The high elevation (aptly named) Hylo Vineyard selection is all Pommard clone, with generous raspberry and cherry lollipop fruit. The natural-tasting acids bring citrus and tangerine, and the finish is focused and long." - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Shy at first on the nose, the wine opens up with time in the glass to reveal soft floral aromas, and continues on the palate with cherry and strawberry notes. The refined tannins and bright acid shape this spectacular wine.
Vineyard Notes
Shoot thinning is performed early in the year; after fruit set, leaves are removed in the fruit zone on the east side of the vines. Later, the clusters are counted and thinned to a maximum of 28 clusters per vine. Once the grapes have achieved 75% color, a final cluster thinning is performed to remove any green or second crop clusters. The average yield is 2 tons per acre.
Winemaker Notes
The Hylo Vineyard is our highest elevation vineyard in the South Salem Hills, and contains 74 acres of dry-farmed, old-vine Pommard planted on its own roots. The 2016 vintage represents the inaugural release for ‘Hylo Vineyard” Pinot Noir.
