The grapes come from three vineyards that we manage in the Eola Amity Hills AVA near Salem, Oregon. The wine was aged in 10% new oak. It is smooth, silky and well balanced. Dark cherry and warm spices on the nose with loads of fruit on the palate along with a hint of earthiness. The fine tannins and pleasing acidity lead to a smooth finish.

The wine has aromas of pear and baked apple. The pear comes through on the palate with creamy lemon flavors, gentle spice and a touch of minerality. A rich texture balances the acidity perfectly and leads to a smooth finish.

Single Barrel Tawny Dessert Wine
This port style wine is made from Tempranillo grapes grown in the Willamette Valley. In 2011 we received the Tempranillo grapes on November 2nd. The wine was aged in neutral oak for just over 10 years. In Portugal they refer to this style of port as a Colheita, meaning tawny port from a single vintage.
This port style wine has done all its aging in the barrel and will not improve with bottle age. In order to enjoy this port style wine at its best it should be enjoyed within the next year or two.
The orange-tinged amber color denotes the age of this 10-year-old tawny port style wine. The nose shows an array of dried fruit with caramel overtones. A mature concentrated palate with full honeyed fruit and toasted toffee produces intense and lingering flavors.
Classic pairings with this wine are stilton cheese, dark chocolate and toasted walnuts.
The Tempranillo grapes were grown in the Eola-Amity Hills located in the Willamette Valley. A mouthwatering rose’ with lovely floral notes and a hint of pear on the nose leads to flavors of cranberry, brewed tea, berry fruit and grapefruit on the finish. The vibrant acidity balanced with a roundness on the palate makes for a satisfying finish.
