Cherry Hill Winery Papillon Pinot Noir 2005
Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon
Winery: Cherry Hill Winery Papillon
Variety: Pinot Noir
Our Papillon Pinot Noir 2004 is a blend of Dijon clones 113 and 115 from our Cherry Hill estate fruit. This fruit comes from 7 year old vines that are planted on our Nekia soil with southwest facing slopes at 300 feet elevation. We noticed in our frequent barrel tasting of the Dijon clones that our winery dog Daisy would anxiously wait for the leftovers from the wine thief. Since Daisy is a Papillon of French descent with a cultured palate, we decided that we would label this wine Papillon. As evidenced by this soft elegant pinot noir, our Papillon has indeed shown a discerning palate. We now follow the Papillon to the barrel of her choice and will only select that which she seeks. Daisy has just returned from her first wine show in New York where she and her wine made their debut. Both were awarded best of show and their best days lie ahead. Both dog and wine are aging well. Come visit the Papillon at Cherry Hill Winery where she is part of the wine experience. She resides in cabin 4 where she hones her skills and greets our guests. (Note the wine glass on Daisy's forehead.)
