vintage notes

2019 was an old school Willamette Valley Harvest: watching weather reports, valuing coffee over beer, charging bird cannon batteries, and consoling old friends newly moved to Oregon from California. Chats, waiting to offload an ancient truck’s fruit, were punctuated by “cool growing season, early rains, hang time, sugar, birds, electric sunset, botrytis, more birds, sunny days are overrated anyway…”

Despite an old-school vintage, the concentration, depth of flavor, color and structure of recent years all seem to be there. And the old is new again!

winemaker’s notes

This rosé encompasses everything we hope to achieve with a delicious, quaffable sun-loving wine. Whole cluster Pinot Noir fruit was pressed just hard enough to extract the best tannin before fermentation and a color reminiscent of summer watermelon or bright vermillion. The nose hints at dried raspberries and honeysuckle, and is supported with a main role of sage and cherry blossoms. The palate shows a great lengthy, acid-driven backbone, and persistent, evocative tannins, with apricot, passion fruit, Rainier cherries, and wet stone.

This rosé isn’t your kid’s juice, this is grown-up, dry, layered, elegantly textural, food-friendly and ready for any season of the year.
