The wine is an appealing pale pink-gold, reflecting the color or the grape. To begin, there’s a woodsy aroma, that hints at the wine’s Oregon origins, then tints of stone fruit on the palate. A medium body, with a hint of bitterness and acidity on the palate that indicates it will do well with food.

Pair with entrees such as diverse as sausage or tuna.
