This vintage provides very ripe flavors. Red cherry aromas are highlighted by notes of clove. The palate offers multiple layers of spice & restrained cherry fruit. Full of silky elegance, the finish is quite long, gradually fading gracefully. More complexity will show over time. Drink 2017—2030. Enjoy with pork chops with cherry-thyme pan reduction sauce.
The summer of 2014 was the hottest on record for the Willamette Valley, with nights much warmer than usual. We destemmed 100% of the fruit, and fermented this wine in small lots, using a mix of indigenous and cultivated yeasts. Fermenters were punched down 2X daily by hand, pressing very gentle. Aged 20 months in 15% new French barrels.
