Wine maker notes
Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir is produced from grapes grown in Washington State’s Columbia Valley. Here, vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains and receive an average of just 6-8 inches of rainfall annually. Because of the northerly latitude and a thoroughly continental climate (with dramatic temperature swings between day and night), these eastern Washington vineyards produce wines that show excellent structure. Our Pinot Noir is elegant and medium bodied, with aromas of herbal spice and cherry. On the palate the wine gives flavors of blackberry, cinnamon, and sweet vanilla oak, and it finishes long and harmoniously. This versatile wine pairs well with lamb, chicken, veal, salmon, and light pasta dishes.

Producer
Since its inception in 1994, Castle Rock Winery has built an enviable reputation for producing high quality wines at affordable prices. This winning formula has been highly successful, as proven by an increasing number of customers and members of the wine press who have given the wines glowing reviews. Castle Rock buys grapes from approximately 40 grape growers, all renowned for their expertise and consistency. In each case, vineyard practices are carried out under the guidance and instruction of Castle Rock’s winemaker, August Briggs, all to ensure that quality standards are maintained from start to finish. After the harvest, the wines are made in accordance with Castle Rock’s winemaking standards, and are bottled at wineries, boasting state-of-the-art equipment, located in Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and Washington’s Columbia Valley. Castle Rock’s business model aims to please, lovely on the palate, easy on the wallet. By virtue of having a low overhead, (no nagging real estate mortgages, no marketing teams or large staff to employ, and no elaborate facilities) Castle Rock is able to funnel all their capital into making the best possible wine for the best possible price.
