About This Wine

A lesson learned early in life has served Eric Eide well.

“From humble beginnings in a small town in northeastern Montana, I was taught that there are no shortcuts to be had when pursuing greatness — in any endeavor,” Eide says. “In winemaking, great vineyards, attention to detail and hard work will get one started down that path; once there, it must be followed with conviction, integrity and a finely tuned palate to propel through the finish line.”

That’s the philosophy practiced at Aberrant Cellars, and Aberrant’s Confrero label is, and will always be, dedicated to the practice of bringing distinct vineyards and clones of Pinot Noir together from differing sub-regions within the Willamette Valley.

“From this ideal, we strive for a consistency of style and quality,” Eide says. “It’s our most generous, flirtatious offering where elegance and perfume stride equally to the wine's richness.” The 2013 Confrero Pinot is all of that… and delicious.

About Pinot Noir

Very sensitive to climate and handling in winery, this fickle grape of Burgundy yields low tannin and acidity, medium colors and lifespan. Classic berry, cherry and currant flavors, silky textures typically balanced with spicy or floral tones.
