91 points – Wine Enthusiast
The Hylo Vineyard is our highest elevation vineyard in the South Salem Hills, and contains 74 acres of dry-farmed, old-vine Pommard planted on its own roots. The 2016 Vintage represents the inaugural release for our ‘Hylo Vineyard’ Pinot Noir. Shy at first on the nose, the wine opens up with time in the glass to reveal soft floral aromas, and continues on the palate with cherry and strawberry notes. The refined tannins and bright acid shape this spectacular wine. This subtle wine should build in the bottle over the next five years, but don’t be afraid to open and enjoy it in its youth. 225 cases produced.
