The Character

Tasting Notes Deep, bright-rimmed scarlet. Highly perfumed cherry, raspberry and floral scents are complemented by suggestions of cola and exotic spices. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering vibrant red and blue fruit, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that slowly deepen through the midpalate. Shows fine definition and spicy lift on the impressively persistent finish, which leaves a suggestion of smoky minerality behind

Brand Story

Andrew’s passion for wine was nurtured not in the soils of Willamette, but in the urban sprawl of NYC, where he once edited the wine column for a national magazine. When the pull of wine outgrew than that of publishing, he headed to Burgundy to study winemaking & viticulture, a move that lead the small but influential Bonny Doon Vineyard, in California. Skills honed, Andrew headed to Oregon in 1994 with the quixotic vision of making Rhône-style wines in the Willamette Valley from Columbia Valley grapes. He was a little ahead of the curve: it wasn't until 2000 that he was finally able to realize that vision. Meanwhile, he discovered his love of Pinot Noir, which became the more dominant prong of his focus. The intent is always to make wines of balance, grace, and sheer deliciousness.
