The 2022 vintage started off with an unusual frost
right at budbreak in April of 2022. After the frost we
had one of the rainiest springs ever in the
Willamette Valley which made growth slow quite a
bit. But, as spring turned to summer things started
becoming more positive. We had perfect weather
during bloom and great fruit set on the shoots that
survived the frost. We had nice temperatures in the
summer months; however, because of the cold and
rainy spring, we had one of the latest harvests in a
decade. We had a nice extended and sunny fall and we
were able to let the fruit develop nicely until it was
ready to be picked.

This year with its nice warm fall, coupled with our
gentle and long native ferments, produced a delicious,
elegant wine. The nose has strawberry, blackberry and
rose garden aromatics with a velvety tannin structure
and racy acidity. The Willamette Valley will pair with
your food throughout the winter and spring (and for
years to come). The wine was 20% whole cluster and was
aged in 10% new oak.
