The grapes come from three vineyards that we manage in the Eola Amity Hills AVA near Salem, Oregon. The wine was aged in 10% new oak. It is smooth, silky and well balanced. Dark cherry and warm spices on the nose with loads of fruit on the palate along with a hint of earthiness. The fine tannins and pleasing acidity lead to a smooth finish.
Our 2018 Pinot Gris has lovely aromas of honeydew melon with floral notes. Flavors of pear come through on the palate with undertones of the honeydew melon and a wonderful silky mouthfeel. The balance of fruit and acidity lead to a perfect finish.
These grapes came from the Wolf Hill Vineyard at the south end of the Eola Amity Hills. The 2017 growing season finished with a cool September allowing the grapes to develop extraordinary flavors without becoming over ripe. The wine was aged 14 months in 25% new French oak.Aromas of bright cherry, toast and floral notes on the nose. Flavors include cherry, subtle vanilla, cola and dusty rose. The fruit is luscious in the mouth, the texture silky with bright acidity and fine tannins.
Vintage Dessert Wine
This rich full-bodied dessert wine is made like the traditional port wine of Portugal. The wine has an opaque purple color with aromas of blackberry jam that lead to a mouthful of dark berry fruit that balance perfectly with the sweetness. Classic pairings are stilton cheese, dark chocolate and toasted walnuts.
