Only four barrels were produced, all from the Nysa Vineyard (adjacent to Domaine Drouhin Oregon) in the Dundee Hills. Lovely and focused, with a pleasing mix of cranberry and strawberry fruit occupying center stage, this seems to gain concentration as it moves across and through the palate. Hints of cherry cola and root beer emerge, with a pleasing, textural finish.
