Nate Klostermann’s first vintage as head winemaker after founding winemaker Rollin Soles moved into the role of consultant continues to unveil successes, despite the complications from the torrential September rains that dumped as much as six inches in some places in the Willamette Valley.

The drink offers more ripe red fruit with strawberry, pie cherry filling and sweet herbs. Its round and delicious structure brings a juicy finish of cranberry and raspberry.
