About This Item

Overview: The unique Laurelwood soil profile at Tualatin contributes to the complex nature of the wines. The top twenty-four inches is a distinct layer of well-drained silt loam deposited from a volcanic eruption of Mt. Hood nearly 10,000 years ago. This feature allows any excess topsoil moisture to drain away from the vine’s feeding roots. The top layer is also riddled with deposits of unique, iron concretions called “pisolites” that are caused by the weathering of the minerals. Some say “pisolites” add more rose petal aromas to the wines produced from this soil. Below the topsoil layer is deep Jory clay, which has good water retention capacity to sustain the vine during drought conditions.

Tasting Notes: Palate-staining red and blue fruit and blood orange flavors take on floral pastille and licorice notes with aeration. This wine shows impressive depth but no excess weight. Finishes impressively long and vibrant, with silky tannins and resonating floral and spice nuances.

Pairing: Chicken and turkey

Points:95, Josh Raynolds

Format / ABV: 750 ml/13.6%
