2015 Futures
2015 Vintage an Extraordinary Year

Once again we have a new record for the hottest summer ever recorded.  The earliest bud break in the spring, the earliest on-set of color, and the second earliest harvest.  We started picking grapes on September 15th and had the vintage in its entirety in barrel on October 7th.  Typically we begin harvesting the first week of October, so this was very early for Broadley Vineyards.  The wines have good color, aromas of ripe cherries, long flavors of black fruit with fully resolved tannins.  Wines that are rich but are light on their feet.  The Wine Spectator has proclaimed that 2015 could be Oregon's most extraordinary vintage yet.

The Broadleys



2015 Broadley Estate Pinot Noir

Our Estate bottling shows the power of our site. Composed of a variety of blocks containing older and newer vines, it represents a cross-section of the flavors producted by our warmer version of the Willamette Valley's "cool" climate - and at a price that allows a larger number of consumers to experience the "Broadley difference."

Estate Tasting Notes

  • Clones: Pommard, 115, 667, 777 and Wadenswil clone, 10% whole cluster, wild yeast fermented 
  • Characteristics: beautiful color transparent ruby red
  • Nose: red raspberry, red cherry
  • Flavor Profile: red currant, plum, cola, a little gamey, mushroom soft, full mouth balanced acid/tannins

2015 Claudia's Choice Pinot Noir

Claudia's Choice is a section that seems to consistently display a distinctive character. The vines in the this section usually ripen a bit later and often sets smaller clusters. The Claudia's Choice wines are not fruit forward - we want to display the big, dark, and complex character that typifies our Claudia's Choice release.

Claudia's Choice Tasting Notes
  • Clones: Blend of Wandeswil and Pommard, 40% whole cluster, wild yeast fermented
  • Characteristics: beautiful color, transparent ruby red
  • Nose: wild strawberry, blackberry and minerality
  • Flavor Profile: bramble fruit, chalky, burst of well balanced mid-acid, palate of acid and tannins

2015 Marcile Lorraine Pinot Noir

Marcile Lorraine is produced each year from the same distinctive block of old vine Pinot noir, we use a cooler fermentation, tighter-grained wood, and low toast barrels. The result is a big, jammy, spicy, wine with plenty of up-front dark fruit character - the kind of wine that lots of people love!

Marcile Lorraine Tasting Notes
  • Clone: Wadenswil and Pommard, 30% whole cluster, wild yeast fermented
  • Characteristics: beautiful color, transparent ruby red
  • Nose: cherry, blueberry, beet, mineral, rose petal, slight anise
  • Flavor Profile: black cherry, red raspberry, concrete mineral, front palate burst of tannic edge



2015 Jessica Pinot Noir

Jessica Jessica is named for Morgan Broadley’s wife and mother of their two lovely daughters’.  Jessica is produced each year from the same distinctive Dijon Clone section of 667 & 115 that sits in a protected NE mid slope on the estate vineyard surrounding their home. 

Jessica Tasting Notes 

  • Clones: Dijon 667 and 115, 30% whole cluster wild yeast fermented

2015 Shea Vineyards Pinot Noir

The Shea Vineyard, owned by Dick and Deirdre Shea, is perhaps the most respected and sought after growing site for Pinot Noir in the Northwest. Shea Vineyard's Yamhill County location and sedimentary soils give us a new terroir to work with, and a new expression of Broadley style.
