A nod to Oregon’s Van Duzer Corridor. Enigmatic. Pomegranate, bergamot and dusty raspberry. The palate is bright with yellow raspberry and great tension lingering for a long baking spice finish. Aged 16 months in extra tight grain French oak puncheons and demi-muid.
The balance of sweet and savory elements in this wine is precise and perfectly integrated. The smells of late summer- dried strawberry, blackberry, straw, and bay leaf- are tempered by notes of black tea, cinnamon, and clove. The flavors on the palate are just as intriguing and are fortified by a dense fruit core held together with a powdery tannin structure and fine-tuned acidity. Notes of dried rose petal, pine, and cranberry lend the wine a perfumed character while oregano and black cherry center it and maintain the tension that makes this wine so intriguing.
