2012 Ransom "The Archive" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
At Ransom, we craft our wines to age gracefully, but we know not everyone cellars wine. We created The Archive to showcase our wine as it reaches maturity. For this bottling, we blend a few barrels we believe are particularly age-worthy and exceptional and age the blend in bottle at Ransom, to be released only when we feel the wine is reaching its peak. Our high elevation, old vine sites in the Eola Hills produce wines with vivid natural acidity, excellent structure, and balanced alcohol levels—the wines are delicious in their youth, and even better with age.
