young and tiny winery in Monmouth, Ore., continues to release a variety
of wines with a penchant of craftsmanship. A product of the winery’s
third commercial release, their expression of this Iberian grape jumps
out of the game with racy aromas and flavors of yellow grapefruit, Asian
pear and dried apple with brightness to the lime acidity and complex
notes of dusty minerality backed by a bite of pear skin tannin. Outside
of Thanksgiving and Memorial Day weekends, the tasting room is open by
appointment only, but it’s worth the call and the special effort.
