Vintage Notes: 

The growing season from bud break through harvest all fell within days of the 2013 vintage. Cool, wet weather arrived in early September, but by late September and October, conditions returned to sunny days and brisk nights. The resulting wines are elegant, showing very delicate and lovely aromatics and texturally layered flavors on the palate. – Katie Santora, winemaker

Vineyards:

Planted in 1983, Corral Creek is our oldest Estate vineyard that surrounds our winery. It’s a beautiful, elegant site that highlights bright and delicate aromatics, and moderate tannins in the wine. We are fortunate to work with this site because of its vine age.

Aging:

For our uniquely crafted 2019 ¡Salud! Cuvée, we fermented the fruit in an open-top concrete tank to accentuate the minerality and energy of our site and create a broad textural complexity on the palate.

Winemaking:

Our goal is to be as transparent as possible and let the fruit speak for itself with minimal winemaking imprint. This cuvée is the epitome of our Chehalem Mountains vineyard in the 2019 vintage. 

Release Date:

Winter 2021
