The Vineyard: The Aspen Block on Youngberg Hill sits in the McMinnville AVA on a 50-acre estate facing Southeast of marine sediment soil consisting of Dijon clones, farmed organically, biodynamically, no-till, and no irrigation.
2018 Vintage Summary: A relatively mild and dry winter set the stage for a 2018 growing season that was highlighted by a cool spring, a summer with low heat stress but higher drought stress, and a glorious October. The moderately cool spring led to a late start to the growing season with an average bud break in April. Youngberg Hill produced fruit that was fully ripe, with moderate alcohol and juicy acid, which made for intense, luscious wines.
2018 Chardonnay Tasting Notes: The Bailey Chardonnay first reveals a rich golden hue, promising to light up your glass with color and your senses with flavor. Before the first sip envelops the mouth, the nose tantalizes with gentle touches of wet stone, citrus, and vanilla. Then pear, Meyer lemon, white peach and tangerine swirl around the flinty tones of cool stone which glide seamlessly over the palette. The lingering finish balances creaminess with crispness, freshness with fullness, and length with layers.

2017 Bailey Family Grenache
The Vineyard: Swallow Hill which sits in the Rogue Valley just outside Ashland.
2017 Vintage Summary: This growing season was warmer than normal with an early bud break. The growing season was dry. The year ended with a beautiful ripening period of cooler than normal temperatures leading to deep rich fruit characteristics with a mineral accent and higher acidity typical of our hill. The 2017 vintage will benefit from time in the bottle and will age beautifully over the next two to three years.
Tasting Notes: When first diving into the Bailey Grenache, this ruby-red beauty throws out aromas of strawberry and grilled plum with a zing of black pepper, and sage. Congruent with the nose, the flavors embrace strawberry, raspberry tarts, and orange zest around dried herbs, butter crust, cashews, and a drizzle of salted caramel. The velvety mouthfeel with light tannins contributes to the symmetry of the overall pallet and a strong finish.
