2021 Pinot Noir, X Novo Vineyard MAGNUM

Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley

In 2010 Craig Williams, best known for his tenure at Joseph Phelps Vineyards, came to Oregon with his family and purchased land with the vision to establish vineyards of exceptional quality. The Williams’ turned heads, cultivating three unique sites in the Eola-Amity Hills and planting them with a notably diverse selection of plant material. 

X Novo Vineyard is located just down the east ridge of the Eola-Amity Hills, in an area known as Spring Valley. It sits on the edge of the Holmes Gap, where the Van Duzer winds funnel through the rolling hills. This site is perched at 525 feet in elevation on extremely rocky clays known as Gelderman. X Novo has over 15 clones of Pinot noir and 20 clones of Chardonnay planted in its three and a half acre site.

On the nose, this X Novo Pinot noir bears aromas of perfectly ripe Rainier cherries, lilacs, and anise followed by lingering earthy notes of cinnamon, cacao, and tobacco. The palate sings of vibrant tart cherries, wild raspberries, and sweet baking spices. X Novo’s lengthy finish showcases a juicy acidity and silky tannins.
