Winemaker's Notes

On the heels of the late and cool 2010 and 2011 vintage, 2012 was a welcome sight. Although the season started with wet and long spring weather, the summer brought dry and warm conditions. From July through mid-October there were only trace amounts of precipitation. Days were warm, but nights stayed cool giving us beautiful ripeness and sugar, while maintaining bright acidity. Crops were low,due to the wet spring, increasing the intensity of fl avor. 2012 is being hailed as an "epic" vintage in Oregon wine history and the wines are proving that to be true.
