Orin Swift Eight Years In The Desert Red 2017Dark garnet with a lucid rim, the wine exhibits aromas of briar fruit, ripe blackberry and dark plum with a tinge of minerality and charred meat. Brawny on the entry, it has an equally big mid-palate with complex flavors of ripe brambly fruit, a touch of earth and notes of espresso bean. Still massive through to the finish with soft drying tannins, the unique varietal characteristics of the blend clearly reveal themselves over time.
Chateau Rieussec Carmes de Rieussec 2013Initially presenting Sauvignon aromas, the nose is then dominated by freshness and exotic notes. On the palate the attack is clean, direct, and silky, followed by slightly spicy notes of honey that extend into a lively finish. An aperitif wine best enjoyed young and thoroughly chilled.

Cherry Hill Estate Pinot Noir 2015Ranked the #10 Red Wine in our Sept. 23, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event. Cherry Hill Winery produced its first vintage from our new winery in 2003. The Cherry Hill Winery Estate Pinot Noir is handcrafted from our Pommard clone which makes up 55% of our 90 acre estate vineyard. Our state of the art gravity feed winery provided us with the tools to carefully handcraft this most difficult grape into a light, delicate Pinot Noir. The fruit for this beautiful wine was hand picked from our best blocks where yields are restricted to two tons per acre. The grapes were de-stemmed and gravity fed to our small fermenters where each lot was carefully monitored. The wine aged in neutral French oak for one year and is a light delicate wine with beautiful color and texture. Like all things of beauty, this wine will improve with age, but it is a beauty now! Food and Serving Suggestions: Pinot Noir is known as the most food-friendly grape and Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs rank with the best in the world. We recommend entrees of fish, beef, wild game, and pastas.

The complexity found in the palate is further elevated by the integrated and lush tannins that round out the wine, resulting in a decadent long finish.

Very clean on the palate with a perfect level of acid to allow the wine to be served either by itself or with a meal.
