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."
Chai tea, rose and black currant aromas lead to a mouth of classic Pinot flavors - spiced cherries, coffee, chocolate and Grenadine. The finish is firm and bright with good length.
