The harmony between sweet silky fruit and savory complexity is delightful. It's thoughtful and it's delicious.
For 2017 the gang is all back together again for one last tour - Havlin Vineyard, Nuestro Sueño Vineyard and Lewman Vineyard. Havlin is back in the mix for 2017 and brings the bright uplifted red-fruit tones. Lewman brings the brooding dark tones. Nuestro Sueño adds its own blue-fruit tones and herbal complexity. This vintage is, sadly, the final year of our contract with Lewman.
As is always the case with the Willamette Cuvée, we aim for balance when making this blend of barrels. After a couple of very intense -almost heavy- vintages in 2015 and 2016, the 2017 vintage comes across as delicate and refined already at this very young age. Right now it is a ready-to-go easy-drinker and it should develop into a thought-provoker over the next decade.
