Wine Info
 

THE WINE

Structured and tightly focused with aromas of violets, mixed spices and blonde tobacco. The palate is rich with blueberry, anise, cranberries and cinnamon flavors supported by refined tannins.

THE AVA

The geography and climate of this AVA is what sets it apart from the others. With three distinct mountains in the picturesque area twenty miles south of Portland, the AVA features the highest point in the Willamette Valley.

Due to the mountainous terrain, three prominent soil types – basaltic, ocean sedimentary and wind-blown loess – allow for greater complexity in the wines.
