Sourced from the same 6 Willamette valley vineyards as 2014, barrel fermented in French oak (about 10% new) with yeast that blew in the door. We bottled after 11 months of aging without filtration or fining. We think this wine will steal your heart, it has a special place in ours.
Serious smoky mineral aroma with a savory lees balancing the fruit. There is a butter cream and lemon custard aroma blending in with the subtle suggestion of sandalwood and cinnamon spice that suggests the palate will feel rich and broad. On the palate the weight and flavors are indeed rich but there is great acid tension and tannic grip to the finish that holds everything tight creating a dry, fresh, and mouthwatering finish.
