Estate Pinot Noir Styring Estate Pinot Noir typifies the sacrifice and patience required to grow and make a truly fine wine from what is called the “heartbreak” grape. Severe fruit cropping, dry farming all summer, and long barrel times contribute to this elegant beauty. Everything about Pinot Noir is difficult but when done well, it is worth the effort. This wine is lush and complex, rolling across the palate with an ever-changing flavor from start to long soft finish. Typically presenting Black cherry flavors, soft tannins, and woody aromatics, Styring Estate reflects the Ribbon Ridge AVA terroir and long, dry summers of Oregon and our commitment to excellence.
Styring Wit Reserve Pinot Noir
At Styring, we do everything by taste, from picking a harvest date to determining when to move a wine from barrel to bottle, sealing its fate. Every so often we have an outstanding barrel or two that we designate Styring Wit Reserve, our finest effort. We bottle it separately and offer it to our wine club and visitors until its gone, which usually happens quickly. These wines tend to be bigger, darker, and with a complexity that runs deep. Black cherry, chocolate, minerality, and cedar aromatics are typical expressions of this opulent wine.
Styring Signature Pinot Noir
At Styring, we try to make each Pinot Noir distinctive. When you taste them side by side the difference should be clear and easy to notice. Before we bottle each vintage year, we taste every barrel and do barrel-level blending. Sometimes, there is more than one taste profile. If so, then we create a Styring Signature – often a softer, more supple version of our Styring Estate. Very enjoyable wines that are quite popular with our guests. In fact, Styring Signature 2009 earned the only Superlative Award at the Northwest Wine Summit in 2012 (Top Oregon Pinot Noir). The second Styring wine to earn this designation.
