Matteri is a unique vineyard in the far North of Yamhill Carlton devoted solely to Pinot Noir. It sits alone on a South-facing ridge, isolated at 550 feet of elevation.  Robert Matteri first planted here in 2011 and our blocks consist of Dijon 115, which is praised for its round, supple tannins and exotic aromatics.  The Coastal Mountains provide a pronounced rain-shadow effect at Matteri, making this a cool, dry, and wind-swept vineyard with a long growing season. The result is concentrated fruit with small clusters and thick skins providing intensity and structure.  

The 2019 Matteri is a dynamic wine, full of creamy black fruit, hibiscus, incense, leather, and citrus zest. The palate is texturally beguiling, alternating between rocky minerality, savory concentration, and lush power. The 2019 vintage shows typically substantial structure, but the lovely balance of polished tannins and mouthwatering acidity indicates serious cellar potential to come.
