A blend of predominately Eola-Amity Hills vineyards.
The 2017 spring was wet and cool which delayed flowering until late June, setting the stage for a later harvest. Summer was hot and dry, harvest started in September. A few light showers early during harvest helped to refresh the soils. Mild fall weather allowed us to pick at our own steady pace. The resulting wines are very pure, with great balance and texture. These wines are elegant, focused and express a true sense of place. The grapes are hand harvested and fermented in small open top vessels. Fermentation occurs spontaneously, after which the wine is barreled down to 100% French oak where it will age for 10 months. They will drink well now and for years to come.
