About This Wine
Once the harvested fruit arrives at the winery, we mix up the fermentations by using whole cluster on some lots, and completely destemmed on the other ferments. After fermentation and malolactic we evaluate all of our lots and chose the best of the best from these two vineyards to create the Yamhill-Carlton final blend. A mix of fresh black plum and cranberry, ripe boysenberry with nutmeg and a hint of toasty oak and floral notes linger on the palate. Solid, yet smooth tannins hit right at the beginning of this wine followed by bright, well-integrated acid.
