A highly inviting wine with ripe, juicy red fruit, delicate cocoa and floral aromatics emerging readily. Each whirl of the glass reveals another stop on a sensuous tour of our diverse region; its lush and varied terrain, distinct microclimates, and infinite vine characteristics. There is a prismatic, symphonic quality to this wine that is amplified beyond any one facet.
James Suckling 94 - This is a blend of twelve parcels from around Willamette Valley. Rich, dark and deeply intense aromas of spicy red plums and wild cherries with sappy notes, as well as forest wood and pomegranate. The palate has taut tannin texture and a rich array of ripe dark plums and a fine yet firm build on the finish. Long and approachable now. Drink or hold.
Wine Spectator 94 - Polished, rich and impressively structured, with rose petal and raspberry notes that build toward a sleekly dynamic finish and refined tannins. Drink now through 2029.
