About This Wine

In 2016, Wine Enthusiast Magazine named it “Wine Region of the Year.”

We speak of the Willamette Valley, the region that put Oregon wine on the map. Valley growers and winemakers produce numerous varieties of grapes and wines, but its most famous contribution to the world of wine is Pinot Noir.

With wine, location is the key ingredient. Each bottle showcases an authentic characteristic of the soil, climate and temperature of the region. The words “Willamette Valley” denote a specific place where the wine was produced and the grapes were grown, and this is the home of RHEA, where Pinot Noir is made in a style that is easy to love.

The 2016 vintage, in particular, is stellar. Fresh and easy drinking, it’ a wine that’s ready to be enjoyed now while other reds age on your rack. And it's a tasty example of why the Willamette Valley is attracting so much acclaim.

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.
