This wine is a cuvee from five different clones all of which play well together creating a harmonious package of tasty goodness. If Buddy Ebsen who played Jed Clampett on the Beverly Hillbillies were still around he would give this wine a “whoo-doggies”. Yeah it is that good. Focused and refined, this bottling exudes the distinctive terroir of the Yamhill-Carlton district.
Ripe red and black fruit aromas open generously with minimal breathing time. Opulent dark cherry and raspberry crème caramel flavors cascade across the palate delivering a seductive texturally pleasing finish. Culinary pairings are broad. However, you should keep it simple and let the complexity of the wine shine through. This winery is picking up steam and keeping the train on the tracks. Lenne is a name to remember.
