Winemaker Notes

The 2016 A to Z Rose opens with exuberant aromas of rose, strawberry, hibiscus, watermelon, lemon, thyme and orange peel followed by pomegranate, cranberry and wet stone. On the palate, red fruit flavors with refreshing acidity offer freshness while a creamy nature offers volume and length. Bright and rich at the same time, the wine lingers with strawberry, rose, thyme and mineral flavors finally finishing clean and crisp. While easily paired throughout the year with all types of food, the A to Z Rose was absolutely made for late spring and summer enjoyment.

Pair with watermelon, feta & mint, crispy hors d'oeuvres with spicy sauces, grilled shellfish, fish & chips, potato salad with bacon- for that matter, most anything with bacon.

Certified bio-dynamic.

This full-flavored rose is principally Sangiovese. Packed with fresh flavors of strawberry, raspberry and cherry, it carries a touch of orange Creamsicle into the smooth finish. It's delicious and detailed and belongs at the top of your list of must-have summer roses.

Home to some of America’s most celebrated Pinot Noir, Oregon maintains a tight focus on small production, high quality wine even while the state’s industry enjoys steady growth. As a world-renowned wine region, Oregon has more than 700 wineries and is home to well over 70 grape varieties. With a mostly Mediterranean climate, its cooler and wetter regions lie in the west, close to the Pacific Coast.

By far the most reputed region is the Willamette Valley, which is further subdivided into six smaller appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill-Carlton.

The Valley’s obvious success story is with Pinot Noir, which here takes on a personality that could be described in general terms as somewhere in between the wines of California and Burgundy—and is often more affordable than either one. The best Willamette Pinot noir has a rare combination of red and black fruit, elegant balance, high acidity and rustic earth. While completely enjoyable in their youth, some of the better, single vineyard or appellation-specific Pinot noirs can often benefit from some cellar time.

Other AVAs in Oregon’s west worth noting include Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley.

In the east are Snake River Valley, which overlaps into Idaho, and Columbia Valley, which Oregon shares with Washington. Summers are hot and dry in these regions but winters are cold and rainy.

Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot blanc also grow successfully in Oregon.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
