Tasting Notes

Wafts of raspberry, black cherry, red currant, eucalyptus and fresh tobacco offer a distinctive Willamette Valley introduction. Medium-bodied, the bright entry leads to a silky palate gushing with ripe Bing cherry, cranberry sauce, plum and a kiss of chocolate. A hint of star anise and earthy toast complete the soft and lush palate.
