Producer: The Four Graces
Steve and Paula Black began the pursuit of a dream when in 2003 they purchased a 110-acre vineyard located in the Dundee Hills AVA region of the Williamette Valley and created The Four Graces. In 2005 they purchased the Doe Ridge vineyard in the newly created AVA of Yamhill-Carlton, a 90 acre site that has been carefully planned and dedicated to non-invasive and biodynamic farming. They are committed to making rich, complex wines where the fruit is elegantly expressed alongside the unique terroir components of the Williamette Valley. The wines are luxuriously produced in small lots using traditional techniques coupled with the most modern technology available.
Pronounced and youthful aromas of blackcurrant leaf, rose petal, earth, black pepper and cassis. A bright palate with low tannin and crisp acidity; blackcurrant, mushroom, bitter chocolate and soft wood flavours with savoury undertones and a hedonistically long and dense finish full of vanillin character and bright fruit flavour.
Food Suggestion: A perfect wine for the autumn and winter months. Serve with roast game in fruity sauces and venison casseroles.
Closure: Natural Cork ABV:13% Acidity [g/l]: 5.8
