    Winemaker's Notes:

    By combining grapes from a variety of appellations we created a wine with complex layers. We selected premium vineyard sites throughout the Willamette Valley, including Willakia (Eola-Amity Hills), Nuestro Sueño (Eola-Amity Hills), Zena Crown (Eola-Amity Hills), Kalita (Yamhill-Carlton District), and Monk's Gate (Yamhill-Carlton District). All of the vineyard sites embrace viticultural practices that reduce or eliminate the use of pesticides which can have a negative impact on the soil's health. The vineyard sites were closely monitored to ensure the maximum quality of fruit. Harvest decisions were made based on fruit flavors and sugars.

    The 2009 Grande Cuvée is abundant with aromas of cranberry and raspberry, complimented by notes of mocha, nutmeg and cinnamon stick with hints of licorice and cola. The palate is complex and intriguing without being overwhelming. It is round and fleshy; expressing more red fruit and introducing highlights of dark plum and black cherry with vanilla and spice undertones in the elegant and lengthy finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Tart and tight, with primary raspberry and cranberry fruit, dotted with licorice, cola and cinnamon notes. Despite its youth, it shows appealing complexity, leading into a full and satisfying finish with drying tannins. Give it a couple more years of bottle age and you will have a reall winner on your hands.
