Vintage Notes: Heavy frost in April delayed flowering and pushed back the season. Cool temperatures in May and June further delayed the vintage. The fear was that the grapes wouldn't ripen in time for harvest if the rain and cold weather came in early October as usual. Luckily July and August saw hot temperatures that helped accelerate ripening, and temperatures remained warm, and the rains held off until mid-October, allowing for an extended ripening period. We let our grapes hang out until the last possible minute, just before the rain and cold weather hit. The 2022 harvest was fast and furious, to say the least! The resultant wines are stunningly balanced and expressive. A truly classic Oregon vintage!

Vineyard Notes: Muska, Muska-Bement, Crannell, Temperance Hill, Eola Springs

Tasting Notes: Bursting with notes of red fruits, cherry cola, and pomegranate syrup with a warm, cinnamon finish.
