VINTAGE 2016 ~ WILLAMETTE VALLEY
Confero {to bring together} 

is, and will always be, the practice of bringing distinct vineyards and clones of Pinot Noir together from differing sub-regions within the Willamette Valley. From this ideal, we are able to capture the unique strengths of each parcel and adjoin them with qualities of other individual sites, thus enhancing the overall complexity and depth a given vintage can provide.

VINTAGE 2015

Carpe Noctem:{Seize the Night} There are some activities which simply seem better suited for when darkness falls and our animal spirits are once again awakened from daytime temperance.  In addition to those[!], pulling the cork to this evocative wine should be placed toward the top of the list.

2016 CLARET

A big challenge and appeal in working with Carmenere and Cabernet Franc as a winemaker is to keep the ever-present pyrazine’s in check. While we feel that these calling cards are part of the unique qualities for these varietals, we are also of the opinion that a little goes a long way. Subsequently, a subtle influence of smoked peppercorn and roasted chilis’ can be found within this wine’s deep, purply profile. Texturally speaking, the Carmenere and Malbec both contribute rich, rounded personalities, with Malbec being the more whimsical of the two. The Cabs provide a backdrop of structure and elegance, while also contributing additional horsepower for good measure.

2017 CHARDONNAY

Van Duzer Corridor- Willamette Valley

This is soon to be the newest sub-AVA within the Willamette. For decades, winemakers and winegrowers have extolled the virtues associated with the influence of the afternoon winds coming inland from the Pacific Ocean, and being funneled through a gap in the Coast Range mountains. This “Van Duzer effect” has a significant impact of style for the wines of this, and some neighboring, regions.

Temperatures are dramatically affected with 20-30 degree drops in the late afternoons. Longer hangtimes throughout the season are a necessity, to incorporate these swings in temperatures; and, more often than not, flavor development is ahead of sugar development. This offers lower potential alcohols. Grape skins end to become thicker from the winds, resulting in less juice to skin ratio, and often provide wines which have a savoriness and display tightly wound energy at their cores.
