Our Wild Child Block earned its name from its unruly and untamable nature. In spite of its wild side, the fruit from this block consistently results in a wine of elegance and grace. 

Aromas of cherries, cranberries, and violets are followed by savory notes of herbs, fall spices, and mushrooms. Lush and juicy with a silky mouthfeel, waves of fruit and spice are met with streamlined acidity and fine tannins, ending with a blissful balance.

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 is sure to exhibit the typical balance, brightness, and depth of fruit that are the cornerstones of Oregon wine.
