Our first offering from Temperance Hill Vineyard, located in the Eola Hills of the Willamette Valley. This dynamic wine possesses a saturated dark ruby color and a sweet nose of cranberry, strawberry and black cherry fruit. An impressive attack is followed by moderate yet ripe tannin. The wine reveals seductive aromatics, fine density, medium to full body, and plenty of material, but it will require a year or two of cellaring in order to shed its tannin.
At its best between 2004-2012.
