Winemaking and Notes:This is a lower lying section in Olenik Vineyard planted to Pommard clone in 2006 and the name references the rock-strewn nature of this section of the vineyard. This is definitely the warmest spot in the site with the radiant heat from the rocks and this was picked early on in the 2017 harvest at moderate level of brix belying this wine’s deep, dark color and powerful overall nature. This is only our third time bottling this section and the first time since the legendary 2012 bottling. We are very pleased to be able to show the characteristics of this utterly unique piece of ground in Oregon. The Anklebreaker moniker is a visual description of the ground this part of the vineyard is planted in. The basalt boulders, rocks and stones in the section of the vineyard are no doubt part of a long ago land slide from further up the embankment and they give the block an eerie similarity to Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Somehow, the name seems to also convey the style of wine to expect and delivered. This is broad-shouldered Pinot Noir with deep and very dark fruit flavors. This is years away from any sort of peak but certainly provides satisfaction at the big-boy level in the short run. This is an electrifying and completely unique Pinot Noir. Even within a cellar that boasts an amazing level of diversity this Pinot Noir stands out as freakishly different. Drink at your own risk.
