2017 Five Mountain
The freshness of wet stone complements savory chestnut, dried leaf, rose tea and cranberry aromas. A wine with umami, ripe apricots, tomato leaf and cassis lead into a long finish of caramel, cinnamon and tea.
“Polished and supple, with elegantly layered raspberry, violet and orange peel notes that glide along a lush finish.” – Tim Fish
– Wine Spectator (January 2020)
“Peppery aromas carry that spicy impression into the palate, where medium-ripe red berries rule…”
– Wine Enthusiast (October 2019)
“lightly scented of blackberries, tar, earth, red currant and black tea leaves with a spicy undercurrent. It’s light to medium-bodied with spicy fruits, a grainy frame and great freshness, finishing restrained.”
– Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (April 23, 2020))
Our 2017 Five Mountain is layered and complex, offering notes of sifted and fine wet earth, rustic spices, huckleberry compote and cherry blossoms. When sipping this wine, I am reminded of the smell of a brisk- spring Oregon day, one where droplets of rain are lightly bouncing off newly budded blossoms, piercing the rain and sun in the crisp spring sky.
