2015 Pinot Noir | Howitzer | Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Hussites of Bohemia were the first medieval army to emply gunpowder in the 1420's. Mostly farmers, they armored their wagons and chained howitzers between them to create hasty field fortifications. This strategy led the Bohemian revolution which repelled five Papal invasions. Ultimately, the Hussites inspired the Reformation and influenced the shaping of colonial America.

Tasting notes: Hand picked pinot noir grapes from the Willamette Valley; a clonal blend of 667, Pommard, 115, 777, and Wädenswil. Unfiltered, minimally fined, aged on the lees with American oak, and stirred regularly to provide a full flavor profile.
