Cocoa and cedar aromas give way to cassis liqueur on the palate and lush, silky tannins. A favorite for cellar potential, this wine promises enhanced complexity over the years.

Bryan Creek Vineyard is situated high on the southern slopes of the Chehalem Mountains AVA (American Viticultural Area), on basaltic-origin, clay-loam soils that store enough moisture to get the grapevines through our annual summer drought. The 700+ foot elevation approaches the upper limits of where we like to plant, but the direct southern exposure provides some compensation. The grapes ripen later than at most of our other sites, but this long “hang-time” can lead to incredible complexity and intensity of flavor. This wine comes from Blocks 3, 4, 5 and 12, all planted to own-rooted clone UCD 5 (Pommard) in 1989.
