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: Intense, rich balanced acidity.  On the nose, red fruits and anise intertwine with savory notes of bay and tarragon.  On the palate, rich red plum and marionberry characteristics are supported by great structure and brilliant acidity typical of the McMinnville AVA.  The finish is remarkably long and builds, showcasing great aging potential.

Production Notes: The fruit for the 2016 vintage was picked in late September and allowed to cold soak for five days before fermentation began. The wine was aged in French oak, 27% new, for 12 months.

Production: 10 cases of magnums
