The only difference between the 2017 Gamay Noir Due East and its Ribbon Ridge counterpart is clonal—fermentation protocols, etc. are otherwise exactly the same. Pale ruby-purple, it's scented of crushed blackberries, blueberries and boysenberries, red currant and licorice with notes of granite, sweet spices, baked raspberries, dried earth and meaty touches. The light to medium-bodied palate offers spicy, earth-laced fruits, a gentle frame and lip-smacking freshness begging you for another sip on the long finish. 150 cases produced.
Wild roses and attractively pure and fresh cassis and blueberries here with a vibrant palate that has attractively fine texture and fresh, silky blueberry and cassis flavors. Drink now.
Brick House Vineyards was established in 1990. The vineyards are surrounded by the fruit and hazelnut orchards above the Chehalem Valley, the rolling hills at Brick House compose just such a place. A New World site dedicated to Old World wisdom, and a way of growing grapes proven over a thousand years or more. At Brick House, "organically grown" is more than just a phrase on the labels of the wines. All of the fruit is estate grown. All of it is certified organic.
