Fresh red raspberry and citrus pith notes layered over silky tannins and vibrant acidity. Tons of freshness!
Brooks has it all — Great story, great people, great wines.

Vintage Notes

A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage fora later harvest than the previous three vintages.
Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer, yielding heat spikes in August. With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which began at Brooks on the 28thof September and ran through November 1st, almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Willamette Valley. The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity.
In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
