Aromas of blueberry, black peppercorns and hints of dried cherry and sandalwood

Winemaker Notes

Elegant and complex wine with a lustrous ruby color and aromatics of blueberry, black peppercorns and hints of dried cherry and sandalwood. The palate has a rich chocolate beginning that moves into notes of wet stone and finishes with juicy dark fruit and nuanced acidity balanced by silky tannins.

Production Notes

The 2018 vintage started with a relatively mild spring with average rain fall. The most remarkable aspect of the growing season was the long and dry summer, one of the driest summers on record in the Willamette Valley. Fortunately, although we were drier than normal, daytime temperatures weren't excessive and our vines in the Dundee Hills AVA tolerate drought stress well.
