Buoy Ten is sourced from the finest grapes in the Willamette Valley. The Willamette Valley is a vast and varied appellation that includes six sub-appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge, and Yamhill-Carlton. Buffered from the Pacific storms on the west by the Coast Range, the valley follows the Willamette River north to south for more than a hundred miles from the Columbia River. Overall, the climate boasts a long, gentle growing season - warm summers with cool evenings; mild winters followed by long springs. In ideal years the maritime climate provides the best condiitons posible for growing the cool-climate grape varietal for which Oregon is best-known: Pinot Noir.
Beautiful fruit with the wine showing extraordinary depth and balance.
