Willamette Valley, Oregon; Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon

Chardonnay 

"Pale green-tinged yellow. Aromas of musky lemon pith and pear skin take on subtle chamomile, fennel and jasmine nuances as the wine unfolds. Juicy and tightly wound on the palate, offering Meyer lemon, Anjou pear and green almond flavors and a touch of sea salt that appears on the back half. At once concentrated and lithe, delivering strong closing thrust, resonating floral and mineral notes and very good persistence. 92." Josh Raynolds, Vinous Feb 2018

 

Pinot Noir

"Deep red. A complex bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, candied rose, smoky minerals and black pepper. Juicy, subtly sweet and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, raspberry and floral pastille flavors that turn deeper and spicier as the wine opens up. Closes smoky, juicy and quite long, with youthfully firm tannins contributing grip and focus. 91." Josh Raynolds, Vinous Feb 2018
