Robust and full-bodied with gripping tannins, this wine encompasses concentrated notes of blackberry and cocoa, with hints of toasted Maplewood and sweet tobacco. Aging especially well, this wine will develop even deeper flavors as it matures.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Sourced from McCorquodale Vineyards in Umpqua Valley AVA Lightning struck twice in Oregon’s burgeoning wine region with the 2015 growing season matching the near perfect 2014 vintage with beautiful fruit and bountiful yields. Bud break in March lead to full bloom by the end of May and the region saw nearly ideal weather conditions through late summer with very little rain. The fruit hung on the vines longer than usual and enjoyed a return to more typically cool September nights, which allowed clusters to reach full ripening potential with a beautiful balance of high sugar and acidity that gives great concentration to the wine. Harvest was both early and smooth, for the second year in a row. Wines produced in this vintage exhibit exceptional texture, balance, and intensity.
