Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromatics abound in light pepper, cherry and hint of leather. Raspberry is initial fruit, along with dark red cherry, plum, blueberry, and some slight spice. Finishing off with a little smoke and leather; and flintiness. Nice finish with soft tannins and light acid that is drinkable now.
Vineyard Notes
The Cuvée consists of fruit from the estate called the “Bailey Block” which is the last name of the winemaker, along with fruit from Bjornson Vineyards and Yamhill Valley Vineyards. The Bailey Block is setting at 660 to 700 feet in elevation. Soil Type: Volcanic rock (Steiwer Soil) & Shelf of Shale
Production Notes
Case Production: 286
Food Pairing Notes
The Cuvée will pair best with chicken and turkey.
Other Notes
The 2015 vintage was slightly different in early growing season timing from 2014, but the final effect was similar, with big heat, big crop and big expectations. The acids were down which resulted in more elegant wines than a hot vintage deserves.
