BEHIND THE LABEL
The Kilmore Doorway image was captured by photographer David K. Brunn. This Romanesque doorway was a sculpted entrance to the ancient Trinity Island Abbey in County Cavan, Ireland. For hundreds of years, the cloisters served as a refuge until they were destroyed by the forces of Oliver Cromwell. Here, the great patriot, Owen Roe O'Neill, sought solace during his quest for Irish independence. 

One of our signature Oregon Pinot Noirs from the Yamhill-Carlton District, located in the Northern Willamette Valley, this blend of two vineyards showcases the individuality of this appellation. 

VINEYARD NOTES
The 2014 “Kilmore” is consistently sourced from Lenne Vineyard and Merriman Vineyard contributing to a beautiful expression of the Yamhill Carlton AVA. These two vineyards are planted on a combination of Peavine silty clay loam, Panther silty clay loam, WillaKenzie silty clay loam, and Hazelair silty clay loam soils.

TASTING NOTES
Aged 8 months in 34% new French oak barrels, this blend of Merriman and Lenne Vineyard Pinot Noir (Pommard, Dijon & Wadensvil clones) represents the nature of this AVA, with a bright red ruby hue in the glass, followed by aromas of forest floor, black cherry and fresh cut rosemary. The palate has bright acidity with flavors of brambleberry, dark chocolate and black currant. Silky tannins dance across the mid-palate and aid in a smooth, long finish. Drink now through 2024+.
