The 2019 Pinot Noir showcases a beautiful ruby hue in the glass. Pleasant aromas of black cherry, red currants and hints of damp earth and rich dark chocolate. The palate exudes bright red fruit flavors of cherry and currants which are complemented by lively acidity and plenty of structure. The finish is bright with perfectly balanced acidity. True to the Willamette Valley, this is a chef’s wine that will pair well with a variety of dishes.
About Four Graces
The Black family purchased an existing vineyard in the Dundee Hills of the Willamette Valley in 2003 as a family retreat. They immediately began turning the estate into a sustainably farmed, well-tended vineyard with the goal of producing rich, elegant, delicious and complex wines.
That same year The Four Graces was founded. The winery is named in honor of the Black’s four daughters.
In 2005 the Blacks purchased the Doe Ridge property in Yamhill Carlton to continue the growth of the brand. They chose a site in a differing appellation to add complexity and variety.
This vineyard has been turned into one of the largest experiments of its kind with forty acres farmed sustainably through the L.I.V.E (low impact viticulture and enology) program.
Today The Four Graces is owned by Bill Foley and produces Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc renowned nationally and internationally for their balance, elegance, complexity, and richness. The wines are crafted under the guidance of Tim Jones who is thrilled to be able to taste and compare some of the best grapes in Willamette Valley.
More recently the historical farmhouse on the now named Foley Family Estate was carefully renovated and opened as a quaint tasting room that welcomes visitors to the famed Willamette Valley. Guests are encouraged to stroll through the demonstration vineyard and to bring a picnic to enjoy with memorable wines served in this thriving wine country destination.
