The Cascade Mountains are the dominant influence on the multiple micro-climates of the Northwest. These climates range from cool coastal, the perfect environment for Pinot Gris, to high desert where varietals from Riesling to Chardonnay thrive in the long growing seasons. The extended hang time of the fruit in this otherwise harsh environment is the key to the depth of flavors in the brilliant wines of this region. With the aid of the Big Rivers flowing off the east side of the Cascades, a once arid and stark landscape has blossomed into the exceptional vineyards of the Northwest.
Aromas and flavors of Anjou pear, white peaches, candied apple, and nectarine are balanced by a creamy finish and crisp acidity. The wine finishes dry and will leave you wanting more! Pair with fish dishes, sheet pan chicken, salad courses or as an aperitif.
