Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) Planted across from the winery in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, Stermer Vineyard has been farmed organically since being planted in 1997. With Willakenzie marine sedimentary soils composed of a thin layer of silty-clay loam atop sandstone, the wines from this site are often fullbodied with prominent cherry and earth notes. The spicy nose of the Stermer shows dried flowers, strawberries, and cherry, accented by deeper licorice and sassafras notes. The palate is silky with lovely fat that is buffered by a long, mineral, red-fruit and chocolate finish.
