Had once before and one to cherish before other bottles. A very high acid wine, especially for the 2012 Oregon vintage. Cut blackberries, black olives, wet oceanic soils, and cherries greet you on the nose. Bright acid of cherries mellow into blueberries and cremè de cassis, finishing long with black cherries, bramble, pepper, and hot Jory soil.

This is the Jackson family's newest project in Oregon. This is a bran new facility they bought some grapes for this wine.
