DESCRIPTION:
*Vintage may vary by location*

Similar to the last two vintages, the 2016 growing season continued to push the envelope for defining the new normal in Oregon as one of the earliest on record. An unusually warm spring gave way to moderate summer conditions, which provided even growing conditions through véraison. Though it was an intense growing season due to the early start, the fruit produced throughout the state resulted in wonderful concentration and complexity with characteristic natural acidity.

Brilliant red. Lively red and blue fruit aromas show good clarity and pick up floral and allspice nuances with air. Silky and seamless in texture, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that show good depth as well as energy. In an emphatically fruity style; the long, smooth, berry-dominated finish is framed by discreet tannins.
