Wine Info
 

THE WINE

Brilliant color with golden hues. Mineral notes on the nose are followed by roasted almonds, honey, white pear, crème brûlée, flint and wet slate. Vibrant upfront on the palate, the bright acidity is balanced by abundant flavors of ripe apple pie, white stone fruit and spices, all married together on a lingering and savory finish.

THE AVA

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.
