Yates Conwill Vineyard Pinot noir - Own Roots
PURCHASE
Current Wine: 2019 | 2018
Previous: 2017 | 2016
Grape plants are vines and they are tenacious. Most all vinefera is now on “rootstock” chosen for its ability to resist phyloxerra as well as water intake characteristics. This is a safe way to plant a vineyard. The plants within this Own Roots bottling are cuttings taken from the neighboring vineyard known as Résonance Vineyard. You would cut off the fruiting cane in the winter and stick it in the ground in the early spring. Most all with take hold and these obvious did.

Anecdotally, I find that vines growing with their own roots not only ripen later, but also do not seem to take in more water when there is a late in season rain event. I have yet to see these berries split during large downpours such as we had in 2013. Perhaps that is why my wines from Yates Conwill did so well with the critics that year…

Smooth entry with a jump in flavor right away with black over ripe plums, juniper berries, and a nice juiciness right after your first sip. Makes you salivate.

22 months on oak on both the Pinot and the Chardonnay. This vineyard needed time in barrel to calm down as it was an aggressive year, very fruit forward, I believe that letting is sit and evolved and expirate through the oak makes for a more subtly more interesting wine.

Interesting underlying rock formations give this salty saline plum with savory aspects. The closest I can come to this would be Umeboshi which you can buy at Asian markets. Seriouslly, taste one of these then drink the Yates Conwill Pinot and you will understand.
NEW LABEL
You might notice the 333 encircled and speared in the rear label. This is my future label as I separate EIEIO from the higher end, purist pursuit 333, which is my Oregon Bonded Winery Number.
TASTING NOTES
Color: Limpid ruby red with clear edges

Aroma: Dried cherries, rhubarb pie, freshly poured concrete

Entry: mouth enveloping then, slightly subtle tingling of crisp, acidic, wild plums.

Flavors: Give it time to warm and it shows marshmallows, red plum jam on a crusty English Muffin with burnt ridges.

Mouthfeel: lush then juicy acidity makes you salivate.

Finish: Great length with an obvious plum Tarte Tatin, if anyone actually ever made one with plums..

5/7 whole cluster

After one hour: much more mellow, subtle is the word on this one.
