About This Item

Overview: Tom’s dream was rooted in facts. Through his occupation as an agricultural insurance specialist in the 1970’s, he knew what to look for in potential vineyard sites. Tom convinced a handful of close friends and family members to invest with him in purchasing a 35 acre wheat field on Oak Grove Road, just a few miles west of Salem, on a site he felt was ideal for growing grapes.

These young Oregonians didn’t just bring their savings to the table. They prepared the site and planted the pinot noir and chardonnay vines themselves. They learned to stake and train vines, harvest, sort, and crush the grapes that became the winery’s first 1,500 cases in 1986. It was hard work, it was fun, and the wine was terrific.

Tasting Notes: A tasty, rough-hewn slugger of a wine, this is stuffed with well-rounded cherry fruit. There's a suggestion of cherry pastry also, and the fruit is sourced from Willamette Valley vineyards, another mark of quality.

Pairing: Salmon teriyaki

Points: 89, Wine Enthusiast

Format/ABV: 750 ml/13.5%
