2017 Marshall Davis Estate Pinot Noir Marshall Davis Vineyard
We have sampled many great Pinot Noir lately, and this Marshall Davis has been our biggest surprise so far this year. Marshall Davis is a small, relatively unknown producer in Oregon's Yamhill-Carlton AVA sourcing from their small estate eight-acre vineyard practicing sustainable farming with a minimalist approach in the cellar. The vineyard is on a gentle slope at 450 ft elevation with shallow volcanic topsoil and basalt outcroppings planted to four different Pinot Noir clones. This wine sees 50% whole cluster fruit with fermentation taking place with natural yeasts. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine goes into French oak barrels, of which 30% are new and then stays on the lees for about fourteen months before then bottling un-fined un-filtered. This wine's elegance and refinement is imposing with the aroma of red flowers, cherry, berry, plum, orange zest, baking spices, and a touch of underbrush. The palate is fantastic with incredible balance, texture, lingering piquancy of red fruits, minerals, savory components, and a hint of spice. A gorgeous bottle that comes in at only 13.4% alcohol with only 150 cases made.
