On the Nose: Power and grace, this wine delivers layered aromas and flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and cherry along with red earth, cedar, baking spices and florals.
On the Palate: The palate is framed by seamless, elegant tannins, rich and mouth-filling flavors and a persistent finish. A truly age-worthy wine of very limited production.
Food Pairings: Enjoy with a celebratory dinner including maple glazed pork chops with roasted heirloom carrots, filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes, wild mushroom ravioli in brown butter sauce or Chinese five-spice duck with marionberry puree.
Tualatin Estate Vineyard
Tualatin Hills AVA
Tualatin Estate Vineyard, established in 1973 by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller, is one of the oldest and most respected vineyard sites in Oregon. Covered in Laurelwood soil and Pisolites, the slope is south-facing with an elevation of 250-530 feet. Wine grapes from this 171-acre vineyard have produced world-renowned wines for more than 45 years. Tualatin is the only vineyard to have won the Best of Show for both the red and white categories at the London International Wine Competition in the same year. This is a feat unduplicated by any Oregon winery. Tualatin Estate Vineyard is proudly owned through a merger with Willamette Valley Vineyards accomplished in 1997.
