2016 Duck Pond ‘Willow Creek Vineyard” Pinot Noir
90 Points – Wine Advocate
The youngest of our Willamette Valley vineyard sites, the Willow Creek was planted by the Fries family in 2003. Mature willows line the banks of a small spring-fed creek that trickles through the vineyard; the shallow Jory soil and gentle south slope make this an ideal site for Pinot Noir. Fruit from this vineyard results in wines that are earthy yet surprisingly fruit-forward with balanced acidity and spice. 150 cases produced.
