A vivid yellow color in appearance, this wine’s sweet notes of cantaloupe, honeysuckle, toast and vanilla bean do not disappoint on the nose. This is followed by a round and rich presence on the palate, where flavors of apricot and honeysuckle are balanced against tea leaves and nuanced layers of sweet French oak. An elegant finish lingers with delicious fruit and oak elements. Enjoy now until 2021.
The 2016 Oregon Vintage turned out to be another in a string of remarkable years that has blessed the state with ideal growing conditions. 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.
