Ladd's Addition Pinot Noir, 2015

Produced by Silas Wines

Our Ladd’s Addition is what we imagine a winemaker from Burgundy might do with Oregon Pinot Noir. The 2015 Ladd’s Addition carries a hint of cherry cola along with brambly red fruit that come from using whole clusters of grapes. A foresty, old world Pinot, it is like that French exchange student who made your humdrum high school more interesting and worldly—even if just for a year.

Interesting Winemaking Technique

Old World style in the New World- lots of whole cluster, more oxygen exposure and harder to find Pinot clones went into this bottle
