Lingua Franca The Plow Pinot Noir 2016

OREGON | U.S.A

The Plow is a tribute to our growers and vineyard workers, who employ either organic or biodynamic methods, keeping the cover crop in place all year round, following stringent pruning practices. Because we strive to distrub the vineyard soils as little as possible, the “Plow” is also a reference to a less intrusive era of farming going back to prehistoric times. The source for this wine is the oldest vineyard site in the eastern Eola-Amity Hills, and it is comprised equally of an older Pommard selection of vines as well as 22-year old vines of Dijon 115. These are augmented by two other esteemed vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills.

The vineyard sites blend together to create a dense wine, while the vine age contributes to a purity of expression and a depth of flavor that is saline, mineral and bright.

“Harmonious and ethereal, with delicate complexity, offering layered black cherry and raspberry flavors accented by black tea hints and whiffs of orange peel and mineral.” Tim Fish | Wine Spectator
