Wine Overview
Thanks for choosing this bottle to support the Oregon Military Museum Project. Proceeds will go directly to the James B Thayer Oregon Military Museum and Historic Park honoring the men and women who have served in our armed forces. Through our veteran's stories, our children and future generations will learn the importance of citizenship, heroism, and sacrifice.

Vintage Overview
The 2016 vintage was a warmer than average year for the Willamette Valley, causing smaller clusters and a perfect deceleration of heat accumulation at the end of an early growing season. A touch of rain during flowering gave the composition of clusters a higher skin to pulp ratio, leading to more vibrant flavors and aromas. Towards the end of summer, the temperatures dropped to a near perfect condition for the grapevines to finish out the season. Our grapes were able to ripen perfectly despite an earlier harvest than we’d ever seen, allowing the clusters to gain the beautiful flavor profiles and complexity to make 2016 one of the best vintages to date.
