Stafford Hill ''Holloran'' Pinot Noir 2013 - Willamette Valley, Oregon
Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir
Clean and pure cherry fruit upon entry but the wine resolves with hints of baking spices and floral notes. This is a GREAT value in Pinot Noir that is not to be missed...
Eve and Bill moved to the Portland area in 1999. Their entry into the wine business was simply meant to be.
They purchased a “heritage” vineyard on Worden Hill Road in Dundee and a large parcel of land perfect for grape growing in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. When the harvest of 1999 fast approached, they needed a place to make wine, so the winery began in a converted horse barn located at their West Linn property in September 1999. (Bill is credited for launching the “garagiste” movement in Oregon in 1999.) Their first harvest in 1999 produced 500 cases of Pinot noir, Riesling, and Chardonnay.
