The 2017 Vintage

The 2017 vintage was yet again one of the warmest growing seasons in recorded history in the Willamette Valley. It began with a very chilly Winter with several major rain and snow events that gave way to a cool and wet early Spring.  Moderate temperatures in late Spring led to ideal growing conditions throughout the region and continued into summer. This culminated in the warmest August in recorded history.  Thankfully, the smoke from the Gorge fire did not cause any smoke taint in the finished wines.  The smoke actually helped filter the intense sunlight and protected the grapes from getting sunburn. The warm days continued into late October which allowed extended hang times with very ripe fruit. Total Degree Days for McMinnville topped out at 2559 with wineries reporting higher yields and little need for extensive hand sorting on the crush line.

The Wine

The 2017 Timothy is a blend of both Fairsing Vineyard and Yates Conwill Vineyard.  It's made up from Wadenswil, Dijon clones 777, and 115.  The Yates Conwill is dark, concentrated, and fleshy while the Fairsing is bright, spicy, with dark fruits.  Both of these vineyards will bring together elements from the best of both ends of the Pinot flavor spectrum for a truly balanced wine.  All barrels are French oak with about 30% of them new.

Reviews of Timothy Pinot Noir from previous vintages:

WildAire – Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley – Timothy – 2014 – 93 points | 240 cases made |  Wine Enthusiast

Scented with crushed raspberries, this exceptional value carries that same intensity and freshness etched deeply into the palate. Some darker fruits hang around the perimeter, as the wine lingers through a graceful, slightly warm finish.  Residual hints of sea-salt caramel wrap it up nicely. Editors’ Choice. —P.G.

WildAire – Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley – Timothy – 2012 – 93 points | 260 cases made |  Wine Spectator

Focused, expressive, deep, dark and generous, with a mouthful of black licorice–accented blackberry and currant flavors that jet through a lithe, deftly balanced and long finish. The fine tannins stay out of the way. Drink now through 2022.—H.S.

WildAire – Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley – Timothy – 2011 – 90 points | 400 cases made |  Wine Spectator

Sleek and refined, with pretty cherry, spice and loamy earth flavors set on a narrow-gauge frame, lingering intently.
Drink now through 2017.
