Growing Season

The vineyards experienced near perfect growing conditions, with the 2019 season a few days ahead of 2018. Bloom was around June 12th. The growing season slowed down slightly as a result of rain in September, and growing degree days overall for 2019, at 2,427 were a touch below the latest 10 year average of 2,545. Our Pinot noir was harvested only one day later than in 2018, with both Maple Grove and Zena Crown being picked on the 26th of September. We were extremely fortunate to already be processing the grapes just as the heavy rainfall began. Fruit quality was once again exceptional. High concentration and beautiful healthy acidity. Despite more bird activity than usual, the fruit came in before any rot had a chance to set in

“Pale ruby color, vanilla and cherry nose, silky and juicy with lovely cherry fruit and good acid structure; fresh, tangy and long, elegant and balanced; Hamilton Russell’s foray into Oregon seems to be a success.”

94 Points Josh Raynolds, Vinous - February 2022

"Shimmering magenta. Expressive aromas of fresh raspberry and boysenberry are complemented by suggestions of potpourri, cola, vanilla and exotic spices. Blends depth and vivacity with a deft hand, offering appealingly sweet Chambord, blue fruit and spicecake flavors and a touch of mocha. Smooth, even tannins frame a very long, sappy finish that leaves red fruit preserve and floral notes behind."
