This wine is a blend of two vineyards: Arlyn Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA and La Chenaie Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. It is 100% Pommard Clone.
The grapes were fermented in small lots and underwent native/spontaneous ferments with 30% whole clusters included. 10 months élevage in neutral French oak.
This wine offers up some classic Pommard clone traits of dark red raspberry and blueberry fruits that comes with a floral aromatic lift. There is an underlying dark meaty, mixed spice character as the wine moves through the palate. Mid weight tannins and good acidity provide the structure to give this wine focus and a lengthy finish.
