Willamette Valley, Oregon
Three of the top vineyard sites in the Dundee Hills are blended together to create this luscious wine. Winemaker, Jacques Tardy aged this wine for 18 months in 26% new French oak and bottled un-fined and un-filtered. The iron-rich volcanic soils from these vineyards is evident in the intense flavors of dark cherry and blackberry with slight hints of rose petal and lilac. A lengthy finish of dark chocolate and complex notes of spice and earth round out this special wine. Drink now, but this wine will definitely benefit from 5 – 7 years of cellaring.
