First Time – Pinot Noir
Harvested late each year due to our elevation, the grapes reach wonderful maturity without excessively high sugars. Expect bright acids; a full, opulent mouth feel; then a long lasting finish and fine tannins.
Next Time – Pinot Noir
Our mainline estate Pinot Noir offers mouth-watering acidity, vibrant red fruit, a fat mid-palate followed by a long lasting finish and supple, ample tannins.
Pressed for Time – Pinot Noir
Bright acids, fine ample tannins, and rich, but not overt, fruit on the palate. An interesting aromatic of cherry wood ash, pau d'arco, vanillin, and spiced, baked cherry pie. Perfectly harmonious.
Time in a Bottle – Pinot Noir
The fruit is contained on attack, with superb acid drive, and fine tannins. Dark cherry, exotic wood shavings, dark spice – all characteristic of our vineyard.
The Heretic – North Slope Pinot Noir
This single block Pinot Noir carries distinct smoky, tobacco scents over deep cherry, which reside only in this block. It is denser than our other pinots, displaying the range of options we have on this marvelous estate.
Jaguar – Reserve Pinot Noir
This pinot is absolutely elegant on both nose and palate. Floral aromatics of lavender, sage laced with that famed Dundee Hills “funk” delight the nose, while layers of cherry pie, cola, strawberry, sandalwood, with maybe a hint of clove fill the mouth from start to finish.
The One – Reserve Pinot Noir
Made only in rare years, “The One” is the highest quality pinot we ever make. It is dark, deep, luxurious on both nose and palate, combines gliding acids with soft glycerols, with abundant, but not overwhelming, polished tannins. A two-minute long finish approaches sinful in the world of pinots.
PMS – Irreverent Red Blend
Native Flora’s riff on the famous GSM’s of Australia, combines three red varietals never before married. Estate Pinot Noir, Malbec, and Syrah unite in PMS to form a fun, unique, flavorful but moody red blend. It has become a cult hit as consumers discover that these varietals really do play well together.
The Venerable Youth – Pinot Noir
This 50/50 blend links the wisdom of 25+ year-old vines with the exuberance of first production harvests. Nose and palate are reminiscent of black cherries, blackberries and plums with a dose of white pepper finish.
Strong Armed – Pinot Noir
Moderate acidity and tannins, the palate carries a sweet note running towards strawberry/raspberry glace.
