About the Wine
The sloping hills of Tidalstar Vineyard hug the western edge of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Before the sun rushes down over the valley each morning, there is a brief window when these vines have the sun’s warmth all to themselves.
So much of winemaking is timing—being attuned to moments of transition, recognizing opportunities to coax out expressions of the land that are unique and true. Shy Horizon is a select clonal blend of exceptional Pinot Noir from Tidalstar Vineyard. It is a distinct and elegant wine, reflecting the careful attention paid to the nuances of each vineyard row and each moment in the process.
