Our 2008 vintage of the wine featured at the White House State Dinner. Slate, spices, apples & honey ... definitely one for a collector (or President.) Only the finest and most complex fruit was selected for this beautiful blend. Promising great things for those who can hold onto it, cellaring for 3-5 years!
The Rieslings of the late Jimi Brooks were the clear standouts here. Riesling is regarded as a late ripener in the Willamette Valley.
