2016 Futures Are Now OPEN!

2016 Vintage

2016 Marks a very big milestone for Broadley Vineyards.  Not only is this the 30th year that we have been making wine, but it is also the 30th year that we have been making wine as a family.  When you call or visit Broadley Vineyards, you will speak to Craig, Morgan, Claudia or Jessica and now you may also speak to Olivia or Savanna (Morgan & Jessica’s growing daughters).  As a family we celebrate the opportunity to do what we love and share it with our loyal customers’ year in and year out. So first off, thank you for 30 years of support!

Over the years we have seen some seriously challenging harvests, and of course ones that seemed almost perfect.  And at the moment we have settled into a nice rhythm of beautiful harvests. This is the 3rd year in a row that we have had a very early and warm growing season. Bud break for the 2016 vintage was on March 26th and bloom on May 22nd.  A very easy harvest started on September 8th.  With help from volunteers (loyal customers and friends), we finished harvest in record time.  We began harvesting fruit on Sept 21st and everything was in barrel by October 7th.  We can only wish every year could be this easy and quality of the wine this great!  The wines are very similar to 2015; dark, aromas of very ripe cherries, long flavors of black fruit and fully revolved tannins.

Cheers!

2016 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, 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
$18.00


2016 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

2016 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, 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

2016 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, wild yeast fermented
