Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Medium weight, red and black fruit with plum dumpling and spice. Gamey, with dark undercurrents of smoke, tar, flint and roasted meat. Round, smooth with some sweet jammy notes.
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for this cuvée comes from one of the oldest vineyards in Oregon. It has rocky, Jory soil and slopes to the east directly above the town of Hopewell, not too far from our Lingua Franca vineyard.
Production Notes
Sorted on a vibrating table before being destemmed, the grapes, relatively intact after gentle destemming are fed bin by bin, not pumped, into the small format stainless steel fermenting tanks of between 2 to 5 tons capacity. A small amount of individual lots of grapes may be selected for partial whole cluster treatment. Fermentation begins with gentle pump overs and may include one or two punch downs towards the end of the cuvasion. The foulage and pigeage are done traditionally by foot. After fermentation, the wines age in a combination of 20% new and 80% old French oak barriques for 14 months prior to bottling.
