2016 Pinot Noir | Trebuchet | Willamette Valley, Oregon

The counterweight trébuchet was an engineering marvel capable of hurling boulders over 300m! Designed to level castles, the trébuchet was the first siege engine to employ a fulcrum to launch a projectile. It surpassed the catapult in power, accuracy, and design. The trébuchet “bad neighbor” was known to induce landslides in order to collapse city walls. The design is said to have influenced clockwork & theoretical  physics. Consequently, the trébuchet persisted into the 15th century toppling castles alongside the howitzer cannon. 

Tasting notes: Hand picked pinot noir - 50/50 pommard & wadenswil clones. Cold soaked at 10°c for five days, punched daily. Free run pommard blended with 30% whole cluster wadenswil. Malo-lactic fermented. Aged with French & American convection toasted oak. Stirred on the lees for stability & flavor profile.
