"The 2016 wines show an incredible density and concentration, with brilliant red and black fruit and impressive tannins. The 2016 Willamette Valley is a focused wine, revealing a darker nose than the previous vintage, with black cherry and plum accented by hints of violet, dried herbs, and bay laurel. The palate is supported by a backbone of racy acidity which lingers long into the finish and offers bright red fruit along with savory herbs, olive, and a saline edge." - Winemaker
