Winemaker's Notes:

The wine offers structure, earthy, and fruit characteristics upon which the Oregon wine industry was built and revered. Black cherry, plum, cinnamon, and earthy, forest floor notes are the core of the Cuvee du Tonnelier. This wine lends itself to earlier drinking. Tonnelier is intended as an approachable but reserve-level wine, suitable for cellaring for several years or drinking up after a year of bottle age.
My Notes:

About Brick House:

Brick House Vineyards was established in 1990. The vineyards are surrounded by the fruit and hazelnut orchards above the Chehalem Valley, the rolling hills at Brick House compose just such a place. A New World site dedicated to Old World wisdom, and a way of growing grapes proven over a thousand years or more. At Brick House, "organically grown" is more than just a phrase on the labels of the wines. All of the fruit is estate grown. All of it is certified organic.
