The Vintage

Warm, Ripe, Early, Generous

In 2015, the Willamette Valley experienced a nearly ideal growing season. Above average spring temperatures allowed for an early and even bloom and fruit set, preparing the stage for an incredible harvest. The three months that followed–June, July, and August–were warm and dry allowing the vines to fully ripen the crop. The result was both perfectly ripe fruit and a generous yield. Overall, the vintage provided beautiful grapes with all of our wines showing extraordinary depth and balance. Right up there with the 2008 and 2012 vintages, 2015 is easily one of the best vintages of the last decade.
