2019 was perhaps the most "Burgundian" autumn yet. Typically the Willamette Valley features wet winters and dry summers, whereas Burgundy distributes its rain evenly throughout the year. In 2019 we had a more Burgundian pattern, with rain and cooler days scattered throughout the pre-picking period. Vines make sugar from air, sunlight, and water. 2019's well-timed rains increased sweetness while still retaining acidity - which leads to some of the best qualities a wine can have: refreshing and food friendly when young, but with superb cellar potential.

The 2019 Pinot Meunier is expressive and detailed. It has a medium ruby color and aromas of wild red and black berries, orange peel, pipe tobacco, iodine and leather. The medium-bodied palate features restrained, mineral-driven fruit, chalky tannins, mouthwatering acidity and a long, spicy finish that calls you in for another sip.

The aromas start out reduced, with notes of gun smoke so prominent that they cause some distraction. Beyond that are aromas of grapefruit, fresh herb, potpourri and red fruit. The flavors are light-bodied, fresh and lively. Cinnamony tannins back it all up. More, please! Decant to clear the reduction if it needs it.

The 2019 Pinot Meunier pours a medium ruby hue and is lifted with ripe mixed berry fruit, red flowers, and white pepper. Medium-bodied, with fresh, mouthwatering acidity, its fine tannins expand on the palate with a balanced, gripping feel, and it has a note of a toasty incense on the finish. Drink 2023-2028.
