A combination of barrels from our three estate vineyards, this wine offers the balance of power and elegance that make it a terrific food wine. Bright perfumed aromas of chocolate-covered raspberry, wild strawberry, rose petal and exotic spice lead to vibrant flavors of red cherry, and raspberry with notes of savory earth and spice. Lively acidity fleshes out the silky, finely textured tannins lingering through on the luxurious finish. A classic Pinot Noir to be enjoyed now and over the next 5 - 8 years.
Savory notes and lively acidity deliver an array of red fruit, including pomegranate, cranberry, and raspberry.

The 2012 presents classic attributes of this cool vineyard site as savory truffle and cedar aromas mingle with bright raspberry and cherry. Lively acidity delivers an array of red fruits, revealing pomegranate, cranberry, and raspberry. A light tannic structure broadens on the palate with hints of earth and sweet toasty oak. This wine has long aging potential and will reward careful cellaring. Fermentation occurred in a mixture of open-top oak and stainless steel vats. Wine was aged in a mixture of new and neutral French oak barrels for eleven months in our subterranean cave.

100% Estate fruit from our vineyard in the heart of the Ribbon Ridge AVA. This wine shows the beautiful balance of a growing season that will go down as one of the Willamette Valley's best. The 2012 vintage was exceptional. Storybook weather and higher than normal heat accumulation led to an early harvest at full ripeness, while evenings remained cool to retain balanced acidity. Fermentation occurred in a mixture of open-top oak and stainless steel vats ranging in size from 2.5 to 4.5 tons. Cold soaks ranged from 2 to 8 days. Wine was aged in a mixture of new and neutral French oak barrels for eleven months.

In 2003, Andrea and James Frey founded Trisaetum.
Today, the family owned and operated winery in the heart of Oregon's Ribbon Ridge AVA produces small lots of acclaimed Pinot Noir and Riesling from its three estate vineyards. Trisaetum's first commercially available vintage was 2007.
Each vintage, Trisaetum releases up to 10 different Pinot Noirs and 6-10 different Rieslings from winemaker/owner James Frey.
Trisaetum's estate vineyard was on the floor of the Pacific Ocean near an extensive line of submarine volcanoes and fate chose that one such volcano would erupt in that very location, spewing lava through the ocean floor, scattering glassy basalt nodules across the seascape, and leaving a unique mixture of volcanic and sedimentary soil that just so happens to be perfect for grapes.
With the precise combination of soil, elevation, orientation, temperature, and micro-climate Trisaetum is able to make something extraordinary from two of nature's most site specific grapes-Pinot Noir and Riesling.
Our Coast range estate is a 22-acre vineyard within the foothills of the Coast Range mountains outside the town of McMinnville and is the site of our family home. The Coast Range vineyard marks the southwestern boundary of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Our second estate is a 28-acre vineyard that surrounds our winery on Ribbon Ridge outside Newberg. Our third and smallest estate is an 8-acre old vine vineyard in the Dundee Hills AVA named Wichmann Dundee.
