Founded in 1970 by Dick and Nancy Ponzi, Ponzi Vineyards has set the standard for viticultural innovation and winemaking excellence in Oregon. From the start, the family has practiced sustainable agriculture and its four estate vineyards Abetina, Madrona, Aurora and Avellana are LIVE Certified Sustainable. In 1988, Robert Parker named Dick Ponzi as one of the finest winemakers in the world; only three other Americans have been so recognized. In 1994 Dick’s daughter Luisa took over primary winemaking responsibilities. Luisa apprenticed with Christophe Roumier of Domaine Roumier in Burgundy, France as well as with Luca Currado of Vietti in Piedmont, Italy. “There is a reputation behind our label that I want people to know they can count on. ~ Winemaker Luisa Ponzi

The 2010 Pinot Noir Avellana originates in a uniquely northwesterly-exposed Ponzi vineyard. Basil, mint, and buddleia alluringly garland plum and cherry, whose skins and pits ? along with a sustained, mouthwateringly saline savor ? render this performance ultra-invigorating. The tannins are already supple to the point of disappearance. Hints of iodine, stone, and moss add intrigue to the sustained finish of a Pinot well worth planning on following over at least the next 6-8 years. Interestingly, these young vines needed to be among the first harvested of the vintage.

Wine maker notes
This intriguing nose showcases spices from black pepper to cayenne to cumin with hints of cedar and anise highlighting dark fruit of plum and cherry. The mouth is lush with a fruit sweet middle of cola and ripe blackberry, finishing with a deep and beautiful length of velvety tannins.
