You can think of this as the opposite of the “Freshy”. We are talking about Willamette Valleyish AVA wines from 2007 to 2016. I can put 5 cases total of these together (or 10 sixers…). If you have a preference of a vintage state it and I will include a couple of that year for certain. The price is $265 a case and/or $140 a sixer and includes free shipping.
No worries Adam, during these slower times I have just gone through inventory and have a bunch of orphans, so am looking for new homes for them. I hope this reopening can get sorted out well, fingers crossed. Best of luck to you.
The goal with all my wines has always been to let the vineyard to its thing. So very little or no new oak, spontaneous fermentations, long slow malolactic and unfiltered. If I didn’t think that “natural” was such a poor descriptor I would use that term, but I don’t. Alcohols range from high 12’s to high 13’s (but I always put 13% on the label- and most are 13-13.5). And because I use a decent amount of whole cluster the acid levels are perceived to be higher than what the actual numbers read. So, to answer your question: I make Oregon Pinot noir designed to compete head to head with Burgundies, but because their underlying rock is limestone and ours is basalt there will always be a difference. Hope this helps.
