The ancient marine sedimentary soils of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA are some of the oldest in the Willamette Valley. Originally the final destination for the early Oregon Trail pioneers,the district is fast becoming one of the best known Pinot Noir producing areas. The well-drained soils prevent excessive vine growth and result in mouth-filling wines with broad, silky tannins.
