Though it was an intense growing season due to the early start, the fruit produced throughout Oregon resulted in wonderful concentration and complexity with characteristic natural acidity. This wine showcases lots of strawberry and black cherry notes, with a hint of tobacco leaf. The finish is well balanced by elegant tannins, followed by a touch of black pepper and cranberry.
