Cody Wright, the founder and winemaker of the Purple Hands, was raised by esteemed pioneers of the Oregon wine industry. He spent his childhood days wandering between vineyard rows and moving fermenters with fork-lifts. His wife and the manager of the winery, Marque Wright grew up in southern Oregon amidst timber operations and cattle farms. Together, they are the soul of Purple Hands.

Located at 500 feet on a southern aspect in the Dundee Hills of Oregonís Willamette Valley, Latchkey Vineyard is their estate vineyard. Its rich, 100-percent Jory soils are famous for yielding fruit of remarkable depth and complexity. Planted mainly to pinot noir from the Pommard family as well as chardonnay, the vineyard spans 11 acres that stretch from the top of the hill down to the Purple Hands tasting room on the country road below.

Purple Hands Dundee Hills "Latchkey Vineyard" Pinot Noir is created from 100% Pommard Pinot Noir clone and aged for 12 months in oak barrels (75% neutral oak, 25% new oak). The result is a balanced wine with beautiful expressions of boysenberry, cinnamon, cotton candy and cardamom aromas on the nose. The palate is silky with a fine-grained texture offering additional notes of red cherry, stone chocolate, mineral red earth, venison and gamey salt. The finish is long and delicate with hints of noble fruit undertone.

"Lithe and silky, with pretty cherry, pear and spice flavors on a fine-grained texture. This is nicely framed, finishing with persistence and delicacy. Drink now through 2020. 450 cases made." - Wine Spectator
