The 2017 Willamette Valley is a pure and vibrant ruby in the glass, with aromatics of tart cherry and crushed strawberry, alongside hints of dried rose petal and lavender. The cool vintage reveals a wine which is lithe and ethereal on the palate, a bit shy in its youth, but with fine texture and tannin. A very pretty wine, already well-balanced and approachable. Seductive, with an elegant lightness that makes it very drinkable and enjoyable. From 2020 to 2025.
