Our reserve program is defined by provenance, power, and quality. The aromas include blackberry, lavender, oak, and leather. There are intense flavors of ripe cherries, plums, caramel, and savory spices. Balanced acidity, integrated oak and concentrated fruit culminate to a lengthy finish.
Cellar Select, Oregon Wine Press, "Showing enticing aromas and flavors in its youth, yet cellaring for a few years should reveal this wine at its best. Aromas of apple baked in butter with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and orange zest. Tightly woven on the palate with firm tannins, bright red fruits, vanilla, and toasted wood."
