Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The mottled and boon-like light stretching through March cloud cover on the Oregon coast through a cozy open window: rubbed sage, orange zest, wet moss, peach blossom and a whisper of talc are supported by a quilt of cottage warmth: spice cake, brioche, dew heavy wind, night jasmine and rare pearl green tea. A surprise of cool joy that finds you pondering a permanent move to the country.
