Tasting Notes

This wine has a brilliant straw yellow color. The nose has ripe pear and pineapple aromas with subtle floral notes. The palate provides a balance of ripe fruit and fresh acidity with flavors of apricot, fig, and lime zest. The finish is long and clean.

Vineyard Notes

The vintage started out early in Western Oregon with average bud break occurring in mid to late March. Unusually warm temperatures in April and May accelerated an “early season effect”, which caused vineyards to go into bloom by the 3rd week of June. The weather cooled substantially through August. The 2016 harvest began in early September and continued unabated until the end of the month, just in time to avoid the onset of rain in October.
