Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Seven Springs Vineyard overlooks the fertile Willamette Valley from its position in the hills west of Salem. Growing on a steep southest slope, the vines are protected from maritime winds by a fold in the hills. The vineyard blocks were planted in 1982, 1988, and 1992 on Jory soil (a shallow cay over fractured rock) at an elevation of 400'.
Winemaker Notes
Vintage Notes:Thanks to favorable weather at bloom and an extended growing season, Oregon’s 2006 vintage was characterized by that rare combination of plentiful crop, a warm and dry growing season with little precipitation and modest disease pressure. A hot, dry, eastern wind just prior to harvest caused dehydration at many sites, boosting acid and sugar levels. Some panicked at the high sugar levels and picked before the grapes developed full physiological maturity. The resulting wines were rich and hedonistic. Higher than average alcohols were common. 2003 was the only vintage in recent times warmer than 2006, as measured by heat unit accumulation.
