On the nose, VIOLETS, star anise, MARIONBERRY and bay leaf. On the palate, raspberry, boysenberry, COFFEE BEAN, dark spice and ORANGE ZEST. An elegant wine with supple tannins and a touch of CEDAR that adds complexity and length.
This, then, is the Willamette Valley. Polished yet earthy. Pastoral yet challenging. There’s sophistication, wildness and majesty in the landscape as well as the ethos - it’s home to vintners, risk-takers, artisans and pioneers.
Sincere, delicate and nuanced. Blackberry, violets, clove and cocoa powder on the nose. Dark plum, coffee bean, earth and red currant on the palate. Soft, supple tannins from the perfectly ripe fruit kept fresh by balanced acidity.
