The Libra Vineyard is located 4 miles east of Carlton, Oregon in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA of Willamette Valley, and is a low yielding, certified sustainable vineyard.  This vineyard boasts alluvial, loam and volcanic soil: 2/3 Willakenzie Marine Sedimentary and 1/3 Jory Volcanic, stretching 330’-430’ in elevation. Aged for 10 months in French barrels, this classic Willamette Valley Pinot has dark fruits such as black plums, black cherries and cassis wrapped around dark mocha, red earth and spiced oak notes.


The vineyard is planted to relatively high-vigor, cane-pruned Pommard, Dijon 777, and 115 root stock. The folks at Square, Plumb & Level chose the Yamhill-Carlton AVA as it typically yields a lower acidity, deeper color, and mouth-feel than that of neighboring regions; the wines have some of the darkest color of all Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs. They prefer to keep the grape center-stage; they do not blend with other varietals nor do over extract or over oak in order to achieve a desired profile. This wine is elegant yet rich, and strives to be a true representation of Pinot Noir.
