Beautiful, gem-toned clarity. Explosively aromatic, this wine begins with fresh, bright fruit-juiciness leading to a more savory palate. The balance is pitch perfect; enough zest to match the velvety tannins. In this stellar vintage, an ample dose of Estate fruit made its way into our Willamette Valley cuvée. Though this wine always shows early finesse, a bit of tension suggests it will age nicely for several years. The blend is 28% Zena Crown, 18% Gran Moraine, 15% Beaux Frères, 15% Hyland, 11% Sequitur, 8% Guadalupe, and 5% Upper Terrace.
