Our Tryptique wines are classic Bourgogne-style blends of our Dijon clones 113, 114, and 115. Each vintage of Tryptique is aged for up to 18 months in veteran oak barrels to achieve a well- rounded balance of fruit forward and lingering, spicy pinot finish that is highly expressive of each growing season. Our currently available and expected future releases of Tryptique are described below.
Released in 2014
As we monitored the development of our 2010 Tryptique in the bottle from 2011 to 2014, we began to realize that our debut wine was developing into what may be one of the finest pinot noirs ever made in Oregon — or anywhere, for that matter. A jewel of pinot flavors and gorgeous color, the 2010 Tryptique is elegant, engaging, profoundly satisfying, and truly memorable Oregon pinot noir. Only 50 cases produced. Limited availability — please inquire.
Released in 2019
A cool-season wine whose maturation took nearly seven years in the bottle, with a complex structure that hosts an exquisite spectrum of intense fruit and spice flavors. An exceptional vintage that can be savored now or cellared for many years. 97 cases were produced. $120
Released in 2017
A mild season wine that exhibits a surprising range of nuanced pinot fruit flavors, with a hint of citrus on a velvety finish. Cellaring up to 12 years. 93 cases were produced. $120
Released in 2016
An expansive wine with a perfect marriage of pinot flavors, mineral structure, rich texture, and a lingering finish — all that one would hope to achieve from the nearly ideal 2013 growing season. A more assertive and up-front wine than our cooler season pinots, we believe this wine is destined to become a landmark Oregon pinot noir that will deliver deep pinot flavors for a decade or more. 346 cases were produced. $90
Released in 2018
After a nearly ideal 2013 growing season, we did not expect that 2014 could be even better – but it was. We believe that 2014 may be the best vintage for pinot noir in nearly 50 years of pinot viticulture in Oregon. The intensity of bold and deeply fruitful flavors this wine is now showing leads us to believe that 2014 will be another landmark vintage for Tryptique. 265 cases were produced. $90
Released in 2019
The 2015 growing season brought extended periods of warm weather that accentuated the development of fruit flavors in our pinot noir clones from mid to late summer. The wine in barrel showed extraordinary depth and range of pinot flavors — a virtual tour de force of what our estate pinot can be and what our Tryptique wines strive to achieve. The result was a stunning, deeply satisfying pinot noir wine that is rewarding to drink now, but that we expect will become one of the jewels in anyone’s wine cellar in the coming decade. 220 cases were produced. $90
