Cooper Mountain Vineyards

Cooper Mountain Vineyards We're not your standard winery. We're not even your standard Oregon winery, if there is such a thing. You won't often hear us make grand statements such as "Producers of Premium Pinot Noir" or "The finest wines from the finest vines," even though both are true. You see, while we are willing to do things that are unheard of in the wine industry, we are pretty down to earth, relaxed and comfortable, like an old pair of jeans. Once considered a bit eccentric, or "crazy" if you will, Cooper Mountain Vineyards today is recognized as an innovative leader in a vineyard movement that rapidly is gaining acceptance. Biodynamic® farming has an increasingly important role in vineyard and winery management. The practices that once seemed to have little benefit finally are being understood. On the forefront of this effort is Dr. Robert j. Gross, the owner of our vineyards and winery, and Gerry Sanchez, our vineyard manager. Why are Biodynamic® practices relevant? The use of natural preparations, rather than manmade chemicals, works to enhance the vines by repairing and building our soils to provide ideal growing conditions. Beneficial cover crops grow naturally and encourage equally beneficial insects. Our soil samples reveal active microorganisms that are of great benefit to soil environment. This site gets into more detail if you wish to read on, but suffice to say that Biodynamic® practices work to support terroir — the French term for all of a vineyard’s characteristics that help shape a wine. These practices, in the end — in the bottle — result in wines that truly represent their roots.

  Dijon Chardonnay,
Hints of apple skin and lemon on the nose give way to sophisticated flavors of apple, asian pear and hints of roasted hazelnuts. A fresh, crisp Chardonnay that is sure to please your palate and pair well with a range of dishes from creamy herb laden pasta to Maine Lobster and fresh mussels. Drink now through 2006.
  Faces Pinot Noir
  Meadowlark Pinot Noir
As of writing, there are only a few cases left of this vintage. Clearly a Meadowlark, this vintage offers distinct floral nose with hints of cherry and cane berries.
  Meadowlark Pinot Noir
A new release as of November 2004, this vintage offers lush berry flavors, earthy tones with a clean fresh finish. A wonderful wine to relax to or to pair with your favorite meats including game birds and venison. Drink now and taste it evolve over the coming months.
  Mt Terroir Pinot Noir
Think fireplace, a book and an elegant bottle of wine to be shared with a loved one. Now, add some sliced Bosc pear with blue cheese and a little prosciutto to spice it up. This is a beautifully elegant Pinot Noir that is ready to drink now or capable of laying down for a few years to come. Another exceptional value while supplies last.
  Old Vines Chardonnay
  Old Vines Pinot Gris
Lush ripe pear with hints of green apple on the nose set the tone for this gorgeous aged Pinot Gris. Juicy pear leads the entry with hints of minerals and as slight touch of very ripe tangerine. There's a bit of straw on the finish with a sweetness of apple. Our most elegant Gris that sets a standard for discerning palates. Only 56 cases made and its going fast.
  Old Vines Pinot Noir
This is it. This Pinot Noir has it all and then some. Unique mineral notes shine with fresh berries and cherry. Hints of earth (mushrooms and moss) add depth and layers that simply put a smile on your face as the rich fruit notes round out the full mouth feel.
  Oregon Pinot Blanc,
Crisp & fresh this vintage won't last very long so give it a try before its gone.
  Pinot Blanc Vin Glace
Made in an ice wine style from artificially frozen Pinot Blanc grapes, our Glace is always a big hit and sells fast. The 2004 is to be released in the Spring of 2005. Truly a beautiful nectar.
  Reserve Chardonnay
Barrel fermented with malolactic in barrel, this wine saw seven months aging on lees in 15% new French oak. The end result, a fresh and fruity Chardonnay with hints of apple skin, anise and mint on the nose, followed by a combination of pear, subtle smoke and a unique flint minerality. The finish is creamy and long. This has been a favorite among top Northwest restaurants.
  Reserve Pinot Gris
A very warm growing season gave us rich, concentrated fruit. Light straw in color, this vintage offers crisp and clean flavors with hints of citrus (grapefruit & tangerine) but gives way to juicy green apple and pear. The slight floral minerality comes from the unique volcanic soil in which the grapes were grown. A well balanced with a solid acid backbone pairs well with a wide range of foods from spicy Thai to salads and pasta.
  Reserve Pinot Noir
This Pinot Noir displays a bouquet of violet, caramel, toasty vanilla, and blueberries. The bright forward entry is filled with black cherries, raspberries, and black pepper. It finishes with balanced tannins that yield to flavors of plums and spice that lingers long after the wine is gone. Elegant and clean, this Pinot will be an excellent partner to a wide variety of dishes from light creamy pastas to seared Ahi and spaghetti with meat sauce. Enjoy this wine now through 2007.
