Winemaker's Notes

#51 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Brilliant and golden straw color, the complex aromas fill the glass with citrus and floral notes of acacia and honeysuckle, mixed with a flinty character. The palate is smooth to start with, yet with a very stony and tight core. The elegant and long finish is sustained by the balanced acidity, streamlined minerality and expresses savory notes with a hint of hazelnuts.

Critical Acclaim

"Vibrant and poised, balancing its intense flavor profile of pear, quince and lemon blossom with layers of minerality on an electric structure that sparks with beautifully modulated acidity. A stunning white that has tremendous depth and presence. Drink now through 2020. 487 cases made."
97 Points

"This is one of those rare American chardonnays that transcends the usual paradigm of "fruit first, ask questions later." There's a pineapple scent in its complex bouquet, but it's in the service of greater elements - mineral, oyster shell, talc and fine tang of lees. On the palate it has the acidity of a wine from the Macon; in its silky line and subtle richness it gives a nod to great Pouilly-Fuisse. The acidity keeps it firm and detailed, while shaping the minerality in the texture, hardly upstaging it. Drinking beautifully now, it has the stuff to age and delight for ten years or more."

Beyond the main AVAs of Oregon, like Willamette Valley, Rogue and Umpqua, smaller regions are gaining ground. Some you may see on the label include: Columbia or Walla...
