No two years are alike, especially in Oregon wine country, this is part of what keeps the winemakers and growers of the Willamette Valley enthralled with the challenge of each unique vintage. The 2016 growing season started early in spring and didn’t slow down, bringing us our earliest start date of harvest on record. The summer was long and dry, which gave us intense beautiful fruit in the vineyard with more texture and intensity than usual; if you enjoy rich, full, fruit forward wines, seek out those made in the Willamette Valley during 2016. Tasting notes - garnet color, black currant, black cherry, cocoa, ripe strawberry, lush texture.

"Bright and vibrant, this wine’s sweet-and-sour cherry scents have a juicy burst of flavor, pulling together lively acids and ripe tannins." - Wine & Spirits Magazine, Best Buy
