The fruit for this cuvée comes from one of the oldest vineyards in Oregon, with rocky, Jory soil. After 14 months in barrel, it has been tamed, showing medium weight, with red and black fruit and some crystallized preserve notes. The finished wine is round, smooth and gamey, with plum dumpling and spice flavors and dark undercurrents of smoke, tar, flint and roasted meat.
In the Tongue n' Cheek cuvée, notes of wild berries mingle with black cherry, juniper and dark spice, leading into a more powerful, layered wine with a serious chassis of fine tannins and more dimension than its siblings. The fruit remains crisp and precise in this warm year. A very impressive debut vintage.
