Wine Maker Notes
The name “Elizabeth’s Reserve” was first used in 1986 todesignate the blend of our best barrels of Pinot noir. From1987 until 1999 it designated a single vineyard wine, butin 2000 returned to a “best of winery” reserve - the bestbarrels from our best lots. Most of the fruit for this wine(65%) comes from five of our estate vineyards locatedon south-facing slopes of the Chehalem Mountains andRibbon Ridge. With many wonderful lots representingdifferent soil types, clones, site climates, fermenter sizes,and barrel characteristics, winemaker Dave Paige pulls together those that best create a reserve level wine, one that truly reflects the vintage and character of our corner ofthe Willamette Valley.
