Dark purple in the glass with lush, round, and robust flavors and aromas of boysenberry, plum skin, and dried cherry. Notes of savory clove followed by a cabinet of spices flow from the first sip through to the finish where cedar, vanilla, and notes of fresh cracked white pepper are front and center. Lively and robust with solid tannins and acidity.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2018 was Oregon’s 8th warmest year on record. In spite of the warmer than average vintage, nature cooperated and our summer was sunny, dry, and hot, resulting in one of Oregon’s most bountiful harvests to date. Late bud break was due to a slightly wet and cooler April, followed by an average bloom in veraison and a slow and steady harvest season through the end of October. 2018 exhibits the typical balance, brightness, and depth of fruit that are cornerstones of Oregon wine.
