Vintage Notes:  The 2016 vintage was one of the earliest in Oregon history.  A warm winter and spring led to early budbreak, earlier bloom, veraison, and harvest.  A brief period of heat during floweirng resulted in a smaller than normal fruit set, with smaller clusters and berries.  Unlike the previous warm vintages, the summer temperatures were milder, which yielded perfectly ripe, intense, and concentrated fruit.

Tasting Notes: The 2016 Cygnus showcases enticing aromas of red plum, blood orange, brambleberry and warm spice with an underlying hint of tarragon. The rich palate confirms thenose, with red-fruit driven flavors of plum and raspberry, underscored with marionberry.  The wine is seamless in the mouth, with an elegant and persistent finish that alludes to a long and graceful aging period.

Production Notes: The fruit for the 2016 vintage was picked in mid-September and allowed to cold soak for five days before fermentation began. The wine was aged in French oak, 28% new, for 12 months.
