Winemaker's Tasting Notes

The Garnacha grape while native to Spain had traveled widely before being planted in Southern Oregon’s Umpqua Valley.

In this terroir, subtle perfume, anise, strawberry, raspberry and lavender scents are typical aromas as in this vintage. The supple texture is coupled with deep flavors of crushed purple fruits and naturally balanced acidity.

Unfiltered, this wine will improve for the next 3-5 years.

Pairings include cedar planked salmon with brown sugar and thyme butter.
