Vineyards such as Eola Springs, Illahe and Mahonia, who Evesham Wood has been working with for decades, make up the bulk of the blend, and 2017 included 2 new vineyards (Prophet in EAH and Azana in Chehalem Mountains). The grapes are fermented in small lots and punched down twice a day. Bright and aromatic with red cherry, sour cherry and spice moving to riper mouth-filing fruit with juicy acid and a succulance on the finish. The label features a subtle and elegant emblem of spring in the Willamette Valley – the Pacific Dogwood flower. This noble tree represents one facet of Oregon’s rich natural heritage that deserves to be protected by responsible land management practices.
