The wine has a complex fragrance of floral and flinty characters combining citrus and wet stone. The lively mouthfeel of peach and lemon tart is enhanced by roasted hazelnuts on the long finish.
Framed by the Coast Range mountains to the west and Cascade Mountains to the east, the Willamette Valley AVA forms a cool-climate growing basin ideally suited for the production of traditional Burgundian varieties. With an array of different soil types and microclimates, the quality and complexity of Willamette Valley wine has garnered a fierce international reputation.
