Hundred Suns "Own Rooted" Pinot Noir
This special bottling is a barrel selection from three distinct vineyards all planted on ungrafted or "own rooted" Pinot Noir. Due to the root louse, phylloxera, these plantings have become increasingly rare and this selection shows the beauty and elegance that can be achieved when Pinot Noir is planted without rootstock.
Picked in late September & early October this wine possesses the delicate floral, etched red fruit and silky yet firm tannins that exemplify the best of Pinot Noir in Oregon.
