Brain, capturing the headiness and complexity



The fruit was harvested from Armstrong Vineyards, owned by Doug and Michelle Ackerman, in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  This 15 acre site is known for it’s sedimentary soils.

Dan and Doug’s relationship began at a Grand Cru Burgundy tasting in Portland where they struck up a conversation about biodynamic farming.  Doug was interested in converting his conventional vineyard to organic and Dan, being a biodynamic farmer, now consults for Doug with that transition.

The 2015 wine is 40% whole cluster, consisting of clone 115, 114 & 777, aged in French oak barrels for twelve months.
