2018 Walter Scott Pinot Noir, Cuvée Ruth
Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley
Each year we blend this very special wine to reflect the precision and tension of Pinot Noir from the Eola-Amity Hills, while also showing the character of the individual vintage. With the 2018 Cuvée Ruth, we chose a selection of barrels from some of our best vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills to make up this wine, including Seven Springs, Sojourner, Lewman, and making its Walter Scott debut, X Novo Vineyard Pinot Noir
 
2018 Cuvée Ruth brings elegance to the forefront, showing generous red fruit notes and layered with floral and mineral depth which balance the power that the individual sites famously achieve, giving this wine an overall polish evoked by the blending of the sites. These iconic vineyards are a blend of multiple clones of Pinot Noir and some of our oldest vines, allowing the wine to demonstrate a refined purity associated with classic Eola-Amity Hills. The wine was fermented with ambient yeasts and aged for 10 months in French oak barrels. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
 
Cuvée Ruth is a wine dedicated to the memory of Ruth and Irv Kantor, our partner Sue's parents, showing tribute to Sue & Andy for helping us to realize our dreams.
