A near twin to 2014, the 2015 vintage brought another extraordinary growing season to the Willamette Valley. It was a warm, dry season that provided concentrated and well-balanced fruit. Viticulturists posit that abundant yields in 2014 paved the way for another big harvest in 2015. Despite a fast and hot season, the vines showed no signs of tiring. With the wines showing balance between fruit, sugar and acidity, the harmony of the 2015 vintage sets the stage for some stellar Oregon wines.
