Tom Mortimer’s vines on the southern edge of Parrett Mountain have entered their third decade of life, and this bottling represents a blend through the 16-acre vineyard which he found thanks to Harry Peterson-Nedry of Chehalem Wines fame. The nose shows the ripeness of the historically hot 2015 vintage, offering black cherry, cola and Graham cracker notes with forest floor and toasty edges. Dark tones of blueberry and black raspberry flavors pick up a scrape of vanilla bean, leading out to tangy notes of cranberry and pomegranate.
