TASTING NOTES

Bouquet: cantaloupe, Mache lettuce, nectarine, green almond, ripe golden raspberry.

Palate: key lime, honeyed sesame, or- ange peel, rosewater, cardamom.

Perception: fresh cut spring flowers leaping out of the glass; followed with bright stone fruit flavors, juicy acidity, and a round and opulent finish!

Drinkability: lovely and feminine qualities offered in its youth. Cellar to enjoy increased honeyed and spiced complexity.

 

VINTAGE NOTES

2016 Vintage: Similar to the pre- vious two vintages, the 2016 grow- ing season continued to push the envelope for defining the new normal in Oregon as one of the earliest on record. An unusually warm spring brought bud break be- tween 2-4 weeks early, and a short heat spell at bloom condensed the flowering period, resulting in a smaller fruit set. Summer provid- ed average conditions with fewer heat spikes than the 2014 or 2015 vintages, which led to smaller ber- ry size and a high concentration of flavors. A warm August shep- herded along the early vintage at Brooks, running from September 2-October 12th. Though it was an intense growing season due to the early start, the harvested grapes showed wonderful concentration and complexity with high natural acidity.
