At the Slope, the Zena Crown Vineyard shifts to face primarily south, encouraging perfect ripeness and maximum phenolic development. Symbolizing a dark winter’s night, Slope exhibits flavors of chocolate cake, white matsutake mushroom and rhubarb with aromas of white true, nori and brown sugar. This wine is extremely lively and vibrant, ringing with a pure vibration in a major key. A Pinot that reminds Winemaker, Shane Moore, of foraging for mushrooms in early winter during a light drizzle in the Oregon coastal range.
