The wine is fleshy and mouth filling, ripe, medium bodied, big fruit and citrus flavors, finishing very long with wonderful brightness. Expansive and complex. Stunning.

Vintage Notes

Comprised of riesling grapes from our very own Brooks Estate vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills. The vines were planted between 1974-1976 in volcanic basalt-nekia and jory soil. Brooks Estate Vineyard is farmed biodynamically.

A warm winter yielded bud break three weeks earlier than normal and lead into bloom under exceptional weather conditions. A dry and hot summer was broken up by rain in late August, and favorably cooled down in September in time to result in one of the earliest harvests on record. The grapes at harvest were extraordinary in quantity and quality, offering ripeness, balance, and expressive flavor.
