2009 Diplomat Pinot Noir
The Diplomat is comprised of two vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. The first, Mistletoe Vineyard is tucked into the hills behind Dallas Oregon. The second, Rodriguez Family Vineyard, is located in between McMinnville and Dundee Oregon. These two sites stayed cool allowing us to make a well-balanced, bright Pinot Noir. In a year that will be noted for higher alcohol, the Diplomat is something different. At 13.2% alcohol this wine is meant as an everyday Pinot Noir. So it is with great joy that we can offer the Diplomat to all our fans. 97 cases produced.
