100% Pommard clone Pinot Noir Cancilla Vineyard | Willamette Valley AVA
This is a special one-barrel bottling of Pinot Noir from Cancilla Vineyard in Gaston, Oregon. Sadly, 2021 was Ken Cancilla's last year farming his vineyard. Ken decided to retire from grape farming to move to a simpler way of life near Salem, Oregon in the Eola-Amity Hills. The vineyard was sold shortly after the 2021 harvest. We are so honored to have had the chance to work with Ken's grapes since the beginning of Swick Wines in 2013. Thank you Ken!
This wine boasts aromas of cherry cola, sarsaparilla root, forest floor, and dark cherry. The palate is medium-bodied and concentrated with fresh acidity.
100% whole cluster macerated and fermented for 30 days. Aged in one French oak barrel for 22 months.
Produced & Bottled by Swick Wines, Newberg, Oregon
