Annual Release

We're thrilled to bring you the new vintage of Megan Anne Cellars!

"The 2018 vintage in the Willamette Valley marks the fifth year in a row where mother nature cooperated nicely.  Akin to 2008, we had dryer than normal summer with no rain, which expedited ripening somewhat, as well as promoted good concentration and silky tannin development.  Overall a truly winning combo, which will mark 2018 as one of the great vintages to collect." - Winemaker Isabelle Meunier

2018 Nysa Vineyard Pinot Noir - Megan Anne Cellars

2018 Nysa VineyardPinot Noir

Nestled at a very high elevation between Domaine Drouhin Oregon and Archery Summit on either sides, the Nysa Vineyard is perched on an Eastern slope with gorgeous valley views.   This is a late ripening vineyard, which sets naturally low yields on intense volcanic Jory soils.  The 2018 Nysa Pinot Noir is one of the most complex capturing the typical dark cherry notes of the Dundee Hills famous, completed by savory and earthy characters with wonderful textures, good tension and a long finish.    

Tasting Notes – this deeply colored Pinot has strong notes of kirsch and black plum highlighted with cocoa and roasted coffee that extend onto the full-bodied palate. This is a strong, structured and intense wine that will reward with cellaring.

2018 Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir - Megan Anne Cellars

2018 Freedom Hill VineyardPinot Noir

Freedom Hill Vineyard is located in a slightly more remote location, further south than the Eola-Amity Hills, yet in an area with a clusters of vineyards of exception well worth the detour.   The latest addition to the portfolio, the 2018 Freedom Hill Vineyard should be summarized as refined.  A beautiful expression of Pinot Noir which dances between red and black fruit notes, yet with great tension and long and linear finish.   This completes to line up nicely and leaves one wanting another glass.

Tasting Notes – this strong, elegant Pinot Noir is packed with dark fruits such as black cherry and plum with a touch of blueberry. The aromatic nose of dark fruits is layered with leather, earth and sweet baking spice. The palate is rich and dense with a fresh acidity and lingering finish.

2018 Justice Vineyard Pinot Noir - Megan Anne Cellars

2018 Justice VineyardPinot Noir

The Justice Vineyard belongs to the Casteel family, true pionners in the area.  This is their estate vineyard for Bethel Heights Winery, in the heart of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA.  The vineyard has been meticulously tended over the years, and farmed organically.   Our expression of the 2018 Justice Vineyards offers a classic blend of fresh cherries, dark blueberries and currents on a lush and concentrated palate, providing all the elements for graceful aging.  A classic wine from a wonderful vineyard site.

Tasting Notes – this opulent Pinot exhibits a fragrant nose of deep crushed blackberries, black cherries and exotic spice. The palate sings with a rich mixed berry compote. It is a serious Pinot with great structure that will cellar beautifully but is eminently drinkable now.
