Clos Electrique Pinot noir flowers

For the last two years, spring in the Willamette Valley has been cool and wet, meaning that flowering has occurred extremely late.  This, in turn, has led to very late, stressful harvests.  So it is with absolute joy that we can announce the advent of flowering here in mid June 2012!  The first flowers appeared on June 17th and we expect the process to take at least a week – with alternating warm and cool periods accelerating and slowing the process respectively.  Extended periods of flowering such as this can give rise to exceptional vintages (all other factors considered) since it leads to a range of ripeness and therefore greater complexity in the resulting wines.  Therefore we suggest that you keep your eyes peeled on Oregon 2012!
