Beautiful example of a great cool year wine. Blend of Pommard & Wadswil (SIC) clones on the famous ribbon ridge. Gentle bright berry fruit flavors with full rounded tone. Drinking well if decanted as it is a little tart when first opened. Bouquet & taste are identical.
Sunny January day = tasting around off North Valley (Willamette Valley): From 100% Pommard. This offers lush, creamy aromas with subtle underlying butterscotch and layers of cherry. The palate is more tart and lean, showing some nice green tinged fruit, mild balanced tannins and acidity. Nice and tart. The finish offers a nice eruption of acidity and offering layers and waves of flavor. Nice stuff.
Taste: Pretty and silky medium body with medium/high acidity that brings a real bite on the back end. Well balanced with very good depth and gorgeous tones of wild spices, herbs, dark red fruits, and rose petals.
Overall: This is a gorgeous wine right now, but it can develop into a real stunner. There is some real nuance that needs age to show, but this is showing extremely well right now.
