2018 The Neo-Classical Objective
A blend of three storied vineyards--all mature, high elevation sites in the Dundee Hills AVA. All lots fermented 100% whole cluster. The goal of the Neo-Classical approach is to create an evocative wine that conveys a sense of beauty and exhibits classic varietal character.
"Vivid scarlet color. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes red and dark preserves, Asian spices and incense, along with a suave floral note that builds as the wine opens up. Fleshy and broad in the mouth but lithe as well, offering palate-staining Chambord, boysenberry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors complemented by blood orange and cola flourishes. Finishes seamless, sweet and impressively long, with an echo of sappy red fruit and supple tannins adding shape." - 94 points. Josh Raynolds, Vinous.
