Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Virtually unknown outside of Spain and a wine of great anticipation, this domestic expression of Mencia reveals a mysterious likeness to both Pinot Noir and Northern Rhône style Syrah. A mid-weight red with intriguing aromas of bramble fruits, black pepper, and dried sage.
Vineyard Notes
Proudly featuring Demeter certified Biodynamic Columbia Gorge fruit from our estate in Mosier, Oregon. Harvested September 9 & 27.
Production Notes
35% whole cluster fermentation in open top stainless steel fermenter. Aged in various sizes of neutral oak for 15 months. 175 cases produced.
Winemaker Notes
Well-suited and comfortably at home in the Mosier Hills, this rare domestic expression shows a likeness to Spanish analogs but a freshness and brilliance that reflects Columbia Gorge growing conditions. Its ease in our fields, cellar, and tasting room makes it a pleasure to know.
