OREGON : WILLAMETTE VALLEY : CHEHALEM MOUNTAINS
MEDIUM-FULL BODIED, EARTH, MUSHROOM, BLACK CHERRY, RASPBERRY, OAK
Ultra-premium, single-vineyard minimal interventionist approach to Oregon AVA with old world results. Crunchy red and black fruits aromas dance in sync with fine tannins and tertiary tobacco and spice notes. Crisp for a red wine, with slight mushroom funk on the back palate.

LIGHT-BODIED, DRY, RED BERRY, GRAPEFRUIT, FLORAL, NO OAK
This cloudy, curious rose comes from an esteemed biodynamic producer in Vinho Verde pioneering experimental techniques such as the use of chestnut flowers in order to stabilize his wines ... pretty cool stuff. Soft red fruit, shining acidity, and a sharp, savory finish — here's a chance to try something equal parts different and delicious.

To be honest, we’re pretty excited to have gotten our hands on just a few bottles of the highly-anticipated 2020 Orange Contact SGS, and gently suggest that you snap it up while it lasts. :)
