2015 A.D. Beckham Amphora Pinot Noir "Lignum"
Beckham Estate Vineyard is perched on the flank of Parrett Mountain in Oregon’s Chehalem Mountains AVA.
The A.D. Beckham wines are a convergence of two passions- ceramics and wine. The terra cotta amphorae used to make these wines are handcrafted in Andrew’s studio on our vineyard. “Lignum” is latin for wood. This wine was fermented in Andrew's handmade terra cotta and aged in 12 year old French oak barrels and bottled unfiltered.
