Tasting notes
 
This blend is a brilliant red color reminiscent of pomegranate fruit.  In the glass aromas of strawberry, red currant, fresh cut ripe red apple, and baking spices are evident.  On the palate the wine is medium full bodied with cherry, plum, watermelon, and butterscotch.  The long, smooth, clean finish is light on the tongue and refreshing.

Growing Season:

The 2012 growing season in Oregon began late with below average temperatures and higher than average cloud cover in March.  This caused a delay in soil warming and consequent delay in bud break by about two weeks.  This was followed by warmer than average weather in April and May, leading to increased vigor prior to flowering.  A very cloudy June slowed the vines again and probably contributed to reduced crop loads for the year.  With July came warm, dry weather and cloudless skies.  That weather lasted into October allowing the vines to make up for lost time.  Grape harvest began at a historically average date.  Due to the naturally reduced yields and virtually idyllic weather from July, our fruit quality was extremely high.
