2018 Condor

This wine has gorgeous fruit-forward aromatics and is juicy with bright cherry flavors in the glass. Condor will improve with bottle age for 5-10 years. We are very excited about this vintage – in 2018 we saw small berries and clusters in the vineyard with great concentration of flavor.

Vintage

In 2007 Joe volunteered in a small medical clinic in Arequipa, Peru. Before returning home to Oregon, he asked his colleagues how he could continue to help. They told him the most critical health need was for food assistance.

The community had a kitchen that provided a meal to 600 of the neediest, but an additional 4000 often went without a daily meal. Because of Joe’s experience as a winemaker, he came up with a plan to produce a limited production wine each year, all proceeds of which would contribute to the hunger relief program.

Vineyard

Condor is sourced from Elk Cove Vineyards’ esteemed La Bohème Vineyard West Block. Whole berries again made up 50% of the fermenting must to maximize fruitiness from these 29-34 year old vines. The wine was aged for 10 months in French oak and is already tasting delicious.
