Graciano 2014

Winemaker Notes

Our 20 years of experience shows this grape to be a finicky, low-yielding late ripener which is consistent with a legend of how it got its name. Spanish growers who were offered the vine to propagate would reply, “¡No, Gracias. No!”.

90 points, Wine Enthusiast
"Rare in Oregon (or anywhere this side of the Atlantic), this Graciano pushes a mix of pomegranate, cranberry and raspberry fruit front and center. It dips in the midpalate, then re-gathers with a mix of tea, coffee grounds and dark chocolate wrapping up the finish. Put this ringer into your next tasting of Spanish wines and you'll stump everyone."
