The Umpqua is the Beaujolais to the Willamette’s Côte d’or. It’s fitting then that this south-laying valley provides a portion of the fruit for this wine (along with a handful of organic sites in the Eola Amity Hills.) As usual, Kate and Tom handle the fruit from each vineyard separately, varying their techniques to achieve their complex and idiosyncratic style. Here a combo of carbonic and semi-carbonic fermentations provides a kaleidoscopic array of flavors and textures. 13% alcohol.
