The 2014 season in Oregon was deceptively easy: warm and sunny, healthy grapes, good crop, easy-going harvest (well, it was a first harvest, it is never that easy).
The resulting wines were sweet and forthcoming, so the challenge was to craft a cuvée with finesse, subtlety, and discreet structure.
Bottled this last December, we are very proud to present this typical Oregon wine, displaying upfront blackberry and raspberry jam aromas, and in the mouth, a rich and velvety texture finishing with a hint of youthful tannins that help maintain the tension until the end.
