2011 The Wedding Wine

Our winemaker, Ben Casteel, made this wine to share with friends and family at a family wedding that took place at Bethel Heights in 2012. Two favorite barrels were selected for their ability to stand the test of time and age gracefully. After the wedding celebration, the remaining wine was stashed away to be released when the time was right.  Now is the time.

Why Oregon Will Fondly Remember 2011 Eric Asimov  -  How important is vintage in discussing fine wines? I’d say we overrate it, or at least overgeneralize about it. That said, sometimes a particular vintage stands out, either because it is so unusual or because its character somehow impresses itself indelibly on the wines. Such is the case with the 2011 pinot noirs from Oregon. The year was unusually cool and long, resulting in great anxiety for growers, who wondered if their grapes could possibly be harvested before rain and cold set in. Luckily, a clear, warm October saved the vintage. The result was wines that differ markedly from other recent vintages. People like me who love pinot noirs of finesse and restraint will adore the 2011 vintage. The best wines are clear, focused and vivacious... Despite their delicacy, I think the best will age surprisingly well.
