A glowing medium ruby color. Redolent of Juicy strawberry and bright cherry fruit on the nose. Aromatic intrigue is heightened by the slight damp earth and warm spice components. The fruit follows through on the velvety textured palate. A great balance of fruit purity and a hedonistic lushness.
Our Willamette Valley cuvée features fruit grown on select vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. The wines benet from the same integrity in the winemaking process as our estate wines. The sites are farmed sustainably and managed to very low yields.
We age the wines in the same French oak barrels used in our estate bottling, however the percentage of new oak is intentionally lower. This wine is not fined or filtered.
