Why We Love It:

Marsh Estate Vineyard is situated on a prominent knoll between Newberg and Carlton in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Planted in 2007, the 23-acre vineyard stands at elevations between 255 and 320 feet in a mix of sedimentary soil types—including Willakenzie, Goodin, Carlton, and Steiwer-Chehlpum Complex soils.  The vineyard is comprised mainly of Pinot Noir with a small block of Chardonnay, and is arranged in a medium-density plot of 1820 vines per acre on low-vigor, phylloxera-resistant Riparia Gloire rootstock. ROCO sources Pinot Noir from the upper slopes of Marsh Estate Vineyard, including blocks of Pommard and Dijon 114 and 115. The fruit from this vineyard is LIVE Certified and Salmon-Safe.

“A ripe pinot noir that shows strawberries, blueberries and hints of yogurt and cedar. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. I like the structure here. Delicious now. Better in two or three years but already impressive.”
