2022 Haden Fig
Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
2020 tried to smoke us. In 2021, we were glad to see that vintage only chose to try and roast us. By 2022, it resorted to a hard Spring frost, and ‘22 was a cool vintage delayed. By the time the grapes had ripened we were in the last days of September and heading into our first October start in years.
This year’s HF Willamette Valley is led by Cancilla accompanied by Croft and Freedom Hill, and—for the first time!—our new Torres Bros. vineyard located just outside of Dallas, OR. The cool vintage worked wonders in these warmer, mostly sedimentary sites. Blackberry liquor, fresh Italian plums, hibiscus, and black raspberry coulis rest atop antique cabinets, black tea, and bitter roots.
