These special grapes thrive in the Southern Oregon climate and thanks to a warm year, the 2018 Tempranillo harvest was bountiful and resulted in a complex and rich wine. With decadent aromas of chocolate and coconut that delight the senses and an earthy undertone with hints of savory herbs, that will pair perfectly with autumnal dishes and chilly evenings.  The subtle tastes of coffee, vanilla macadamia nut and soft cedar meld perfectly together for a robust finish and luscious finish.

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.
