ABOUT: Prior to 2007 Kelley Fox worked for a mess of good Oregon winemakers- Hamacher, Eyrie, Torii Mor, Scott Paul. From 2007 to this very moment she makes her own wines, crazy good Pinot Noir harvested from the Maresh and Momtazi vineyards. These wines have a lot of style and lean towards the lighter, fine-grained, elegant style. Aromas and flavors of herbs, flowers, and minerality are in the right hemisphere and the methods put into action are biodynamic.

TASTE: This Hyland Vineyard Pinot Noir is new to us and the words written about it at kelleyfoxwines.com says The vines I work with there have been farmed organically for years and biodynamically (uncertified) starting a few years ago. The Hyland Coury Clone 2017 is medium to darker red, and full of moving light and transparency. It has a pure nose of the reddest of red berries (the classic Oregon summer raspberries and strawberries-I hope you have tasted these before) with a certain coolness. It is complex with a velvety frame and nimble, age-worthy acidity typical of Hyland Vineyard, and a real boon in the string of warm vintages in the Willamette Valley (back to old school). It’s a beauty, it’s long, and it seems to embody some Platonic Idea of “Red”. If it’s anything like her other wines we’re in for a treat!

PAIR: Roasted parsnips and carrots, potato leek soup, caramelized Brussel sprouts with garlic, spinach and goat cheese ravioli, and roasted asparagus with lemon and a poached egg.
