2012 Vintage

Bud break was the 21st of April; spring was cool and wet, but bloom occurred June 23rd, and summer gradually warmed towards more normal levels than the two previous years. A rainy spell during bloom resulted in a light fruit set so we could achieve our yield targets without any crop thinning. This and the dry warm summer meant very low disease pressure and exceptionally clean and ripe fruit at the end of the season. The north Willamette Valley experienced over 100 days without rain at the end of the summer and September was the warmest of record. We began harvesting October 7th and finished on October 18th.

“The nose is lightly perfumed with notes of rose-petal. Blue fruits dominate the palate, with full mouth watering acidity. The tannins are elegant and restrained, with a hint of Earl Grey tea. The notes of cedar and a slight saltiness on the finish suggest a perfect pairing with salmon grilled on a cedar plank. Season with rosemary and enjoy. The tannins and acidic structure of this wine mean that it will age extremely well in your cellar. Drink a bottle a year for the next 12 years. You won’t regret it.” Double Gold-Great Northwest Wine Competition
