Bright youthful garnet color of medium intensity. Sweet ripe cherry and red plum aromas with a hint of minerality and spicy pipe tobacco. Aromas repeat as flavors, with a spicy lingering finish.  Sourced from hand selected lots throughout the Willamette Valley, including vineyards in McMinnville, Yamhill-Carlton and Dundee Hills AVAs. Aged for ten months in a combination of French and American oak. Enjoy now or hold for 3-5 years.
