Winemaker's Notes:

A clean, bright nose of cherries and floral notes adds a suggestion of sweetness with air. This initially seems round and soft, becoming lively and energetic on the back end, with modest tannins and good acidity. Although designed to give immediate pleasure, this Prelude has the framework to age for several years.
My Notes:

About Andrew Rich:

Named one of Wine & Spirits magazine's top 100 wineries of 2009, Andrew Rich Wines has been crafting distinctive wines in Oregon's Willamette Valley since 1995. Along with Pinot Noir, Rhone Valley varietals from the Columbia Valley--including Syrah, Roussanne, Grenache, and Mourvedre--take pride of place, though the winery is equally well known for its seductive Gewurztraminer dessert wine.
