Planted in 2001 by Ken Wright and crew, the Abbott Claim vineyard is located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The soils are ancient marine sediments with elevation between 400' - 475'.  The Pommard clone comprises 4 acres in total.  

Every wine produced under the Angela Estate label is a single vineyard, estate Pinot noir.  The vines are farmed nutritionally, which treats the microbiology in the vineyards section by section.  Soil and stem samples are analyzed for nutritional value.  It is the most specific grape farming imaginable.  

Our fruit is hand-harvested in the early morning in small 14" buckets. It is then hand sorted and de-stemmed, deposited into one-ton bins for small-batch fermentations. Post fermentation, the free-run juice is settled and put into barrel. The must is paced in a specialized bladder press for gentle pressing. The wine rests for 11 months in 30% new French oak barrels. We prefer Cadus barrels for their warm tonality.

It balances the acidity, fruit, tannin and alcohol seamlessly.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We find more red cassis and black currant in the flavor profile. An undertone of subtle white truffle and forest floor. The structure is supple and round with medium intensity.
