100% Wadensvil Clone
Elkton Oregon AVA
"A fruity spicy nose of cherry cola, orange pekoe tea and a touch of black peppercorn leads to a tart cranberry, dark cherry and persimmon on the palate. The fruit is balanced with flavors of leather, graphite, tea leaves and pepper, carrying on to a long finish."
"This is becoming the golden age for quality, value-oriented Oregon Pinot Noir. But within that broad range category, there are few single vineyard, Willamette Valley entries. Add this to the list. All Pommard clone 30% new French oak, and a pale lovely shade of rose, this brings substantial berry, root beer, earth and iron flavors into play. Complex and refined, it has subtle power."

Chardonnay Celebration Selection
SF Chronicle Wine Competition Silver
"This all-stainless Chardonnay does not sacrifice flavor complexity, with a mix of pear and peach fruit flavors that is seamless and fresh. The wine finishes as clean and crisp as it begins. Drink up during the next couple of years."
Steel fermented and without malolactic fermentation.
This unoaked Chardonnay lets beautiful crisp flavors shine and promises to be a great pairing with seafood and dishes featuring cream, butter, mustard or pesto sauces. The lovely nose offers aromas of Bartlett pear, yellow apple, lemon curd, and light notes of citrus blossom. Mouthwatering flavors of lime and tart green apple are upfront on the palate with notes of saline an a light minerality on a lingering clean finish.

NY International Wine Competition Silver 91
"Dark ruby color. Fruity aromas and flavors of cranberry scone, strawberries in cream, lingonberry, dried cherry, leather, black licorice, and musk with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth appealing, medium length orange marmalade, mulled cider, almond nougat, and cocoa powder finish with well integrated tannins and a suggestion of oak. Authentic fruit and tantalizing spices shine in this spot on pinot"
Another lovely crisp expression of Oregon Chardonnay from the same rows we have picked since our inaugural 2011 vintage. Apple, citrus, and a clean finish make this an ideal food wine. The flavor of the grape shines right through. All steel and no malolactic fermentation.
