Description
 
ABOUT: Doug Tunell established Brick House in 1990 in what is now called the Ribbon Ridge AVA, a sub region of the Willamette Valley AVA in Oregon. Originally thinking he would grow organic grapes and sell to the wineries of the region, he soon learned he'd have to make his own wine to earn a living. In the early 2000's he began implementing biodynamic practices to his 19 acres of Pinot Noir, 3 acres of Chardonnay and about the same of Gamay Noir.

TASTE: In the Brick House lineup the Tonnelier is a charmer. Made from the oldest Pommard clones on the property, this Pinot Noir has a lot of depth and nuance but tends to be more open and approachable in it’s youth than the Evelyn. The 2017 has lifted aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and plums intertwined with a whiff of smoke, baking spices, potting soil, and orange peel. Delicate structure with persistent acidity that adds elegance and longevity to the finish.

PAIR: Mint, basil, mustard, peppercorns, caramelized onions, tomatoes, figs, and plums.
