Winemaker Tasting Notes
The fruit from our estate Fault Line Vineyards in the Umpqua Valley, as well as Pheasant Hill and Alta Seca Vineyards in the Rogue Valley, benefit from meticulous farming practices.
The result shows in the bottle. Characteristic ripe plum, currant, and dark fruit aromas revolve around notes of graphite, cherry, truffle, and spice.
We anticipate that cellaring over the next five years will bring improvement.
