  • In homage to one of winemaker/owner Chris Berg’s favorite artists, the wine is named for the famous Bauhaus artist Paul Klee. The artwork on the label is an adaptation of a painting called Solution “ee”. of the Birthday Assignment, 1924. The fruit for this Pinot Noir comes from a mix of vineyards, including Roots, Saffron Fields, LeRoy and 49 Rows. All sites are located in the Northern Willamette Valley and were planted between 1971 and 2007. Most of the soils in these vineyards are silty loam with various percentages of sandy loam underlying.The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in French oak barrels (10% new oak) for 11 months. It is meant to be fruit forward. Like the Bauhaus school where art is for the people, this wine is for the people. Heady aromas of cedar, mushroom, earth and black cherry emerge from the glass. On the palate, the fruit-driven wine shows soft tannins and flavors of dark cherry compote, strawberry leather, stewed plums and rose oil. The finish lingers with bright acid to complete the taste experience. 3000 cases made.
