Johan Vineyards Berserker Day VI 3-pack deals

Johan Vineyards

We are diligent. Our wines are inspired. We believe Oregon is a special place to make wine and we believe in our vineyards. We admire Burgundy, but we are not French and neither are our wines. We are not certain why we do everything we do, we can only say with confidence that we love wine and feel compelled to be involved. The work of others in this field inspires us to continue our journey to produce Oregonian wines. In return we hope to inspire others with our work.
Rather than striving for a stylistic preference, we seek balance and energy in our wines. This energy is a mystery to us and we seek to understand and harness it. Our observations lead us to believe this energy exists in wines that are made from organic fruit sources combined with wild fermentations and minimal intervention. For this reason we farm our vineyards and craft our wines using organic and Biodynamic® methods.


Berserker Day V deals:

Deal 1: Current Pinot Noir 3-pack

2012 Pinot Noir – “Estate”
Wine philosophy: “The goal behind the Estate bottling is to make a wine that is representative of the whole farm. If we were to harvest all of our Pinot Noir grapes and make one wine this is the wine it would be. We achieve this on a micro scale by selecting small parcels of fruit from every combination of rootstock/scion, slope, soil profile, and vine age on the property. We then vinify, age, and bottle this wine separately from our other lots. This bottling is always the most representative of the growing year. It incorporates every element of the farm for better or worse. It is the most accurate representation of Johan Vineyards’ terroir.”

2012 Pinot Noir – “Nils”
Wine philosophy: “The Nils bottling was created out of an interest to capture a specific expression from our estate fruit. With the Nils we seek power through weight and extract. This is where our personal preferences begin to merge with the terroir of the vineyard. Our highest pitched East-facing slope produces the most concentrated fruit on the property. We select the best rows at the peak of this slope to produce this wine. This slope provides the dark fruit and earthy base notes of the Nils bottling. The extract and concentrated tannin profile of this fruit provides a wealth of antioxidants that preserve this wine for long term aging.”

2012 Pinot Noir – “Three Barrel”
Wine philosophy: “The Three barrel bottling is the result of an annual barrel selection process. The blend is comprised of our three most alluring and exotic barrels from the vintage. Every year we end up with a few barrels that express particular aroma and flavor characteristics that are beyond our comprehension. These barrels are in perfect harmony with their time and place resulting in something complete and truly compelling. The goal with Three Barrel is to maximize aromatic complexity and perfume. A firm acid structure replaces tannic extract to preserve this wine for long term aging.”

BerserkerDay VI deal $100 (regular price $113) and free ground shipping.



Deal 2: Library Pinot Noir “Nils” 3-pack

2007 Pinot Noir – “Nils”
2008 Pinot Noir – “Nils”
2009 Pinot Noir – “Nils”

BerserkerDay VI deal: $110 (regular price $135) and free ground shipping. Limited to the first 10 packs sold.


Deal 3: White 3-pack

2012 Chardonnay – “Visdom”
Wine philosophy: “The Visdom (wisdom in Norwegian) bottling is a study of secondary and tertiary aromatic development in Chardonnay. We like to think of this wine as something that resembles flat Champagne. With extended aging prior to bottling we see a decline in fruit and an increase in vineyard expression. After 18 months of barrique aging the wine is bottled with a small amount of lees to allow the wine to stay in contact with the yeast taking advantage of the complexities that develop with late stage yeast autolysis.”

2012 Chardonnay – “Konkret”
Wine philosophy: “The Konkret (concrete in Norwegian) bottling is an isolation of our old vine Chardonnay planted at the base of our vineyard. Although the lower slope has deeper soils, the concentration of granite reaches its peak beneath these vines. There is a mineral expression that we love here that requires a unique approach to the winemaking to encourage its expression. The juice is fermented in concrete tanks and transferred to special built Feuillette (30 gal) barrels for aging. Bottling is done without the lees to preserve the impression of stones and flint.”

2013 Grüner Veltliner – “Estate”
Wine philosophy: “Gruner Veltliner has so much to give. The varietal character is intense and highly unique suiting itself perfectly to hands-off winemaking methods. There is a range of fruit maturity with which this grape can be harvested to lend itself to different styles. The resulting wines can vary from lean and herbal, to highly textured and exotic smelling depending on the vineyards ability to ripen the fruit. Our site produces fruit that wants to be rich and exotic producing significant texture for its meager alcohol levels. We prefer this style for our own taste and encourage it by aging the wine in oak casks for 10 months with full solids.”

BerserkerDay VI deal $90 (regular price $97) and free ground shipping.

Bumping all the last 12 offers to launch at once - enjoy!!!
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

Bump to the top, I've had some past vintages lately that have been marvelous wines. I'm keeping the rest for several more years.
