Winemaker Notes

An unusually warm spring kicked off another record early grape harvest for 2016. Unlike 2015, which was equally early, 2016 had a much more moderate Summer with fewer heat spikes than either 2014 or 2015. A small heat spike during bloom lead to a smaller fruit set with smaller berries. A slightly warmer than usual August shepherded the modest crop loads to full ripeness in record time. As a result, the 2016 wines show stunning concentration and balance when compared to other warm vintages with similarly pristine, ripe fruit. 2016 marks the 3rd consecutive stellar vintage in the Northern Willamette.

Organically Farmed

Dark cherries and toasted spices make for a captivating nose with plenty of immediate interest. The deeply rich dark-cherries on the palate are cast along fluid, long and sturdy tannin lines. Strong finish. - James Suckling 93pts

This entry-level blend bangs a home run in this vintage. From its lush, lightly musky nose to its rich pie-worthy mix of blueberries, blackberries and cherries, this is simply irresistible. Well-woven Asian spices and light seams of chocolate, coffee and black tea all combine in a thoroughly satisfying, beautifully integrated wine with another half decade of life ahead. Editors’ Choice. - Wine Enthusiast 93pts

Vibrant and generous, with expressive raspberry, orange zest and tarragon flavors that take on complexity toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026. - Wine Spectator 91pts
