Winemaker's Notes

This was a vintage for diligent vineyard management and experienced winemaking. Winemakers were rewarded by this long growing season with intense fruit complemented by a freshness of acidity and structure on which Oregon has built its reputation. 2005 is being hailed as a "Classic Oregon Vintage."
