Tasting Notes

This medium-bodied and balanced wine opens with a nose of lemon, pear, honeysuckle and sweet French oak. The palate displays nice acidity with subtle French oak influences to create a round mouthfeel. Flavors of pear, lemon zest, wild honey and vanilla conclude in a pleasant and lasting finish.

Vineyard Notes

Fifth-generation farmer Jeremy Kennel harvests grapes from his 28-acre vineyard with deep reverence for the land, mindful of his family’s stewardship for generations to come. Nestled between Corvallis and Monmouth in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Kennel is considered a warm site, but benefits from coastal breezes and cool nights, which balance acidity levels and allow for optimal flavor development.

Winemaker Notes

The fruit was whole-cluster pressed and barrel fermented. Aged sur lie for seven months in French oak, 20% new.
