2018 Edward Pinot Noir
2018 Edward Pinot Noir

Our goal with the Edward blend was to create our best representation of classically-styled Oregon Pinot noir.  “This is a fresh and lively wine with very attractive, ripe dark berries and cherries on offer, leading to a palate that has intense and structured style.  Long, energetic, ripe-cherry finish.  Drink or hold.”  Awarded 93 Points by James Suckling


This barrel selection honors Pattie's grandfather, a Minneapolis fire fighter, who was a reserved yet intense man, with a strong work ethic reflecting his Midwestern heritage.

Jim and Grandpa Ed Knight - 1961

Other notes

2018 was the seventh in a string of warm vintages at Bjornson. It was defined by a very dry summer, which made for small clusters and a relatively small crop. July was hot, leading to the first signs of veraison in early August, but our reliable evening maritime winds kept night-time temperatures cool throughout July and August, preserving acidity in the fruit as it ripened. September finally brought a couple of welcome rain events that refreshed the vines and kept them active through the final ripening period.
