Zenith is centrally located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA 11 miles NW of Salem, Oregon. The grapes for this wine come from two older blocks planted on a gentle hillside on old sedimentary soil.
Winemaker Notes
Vintage Notes: The 2010 vintage was Oregon's coldest growing season in 30 years. Bloom was later than normal and occurred in cloudy and cool weather. The flowers do not fertilize well in these conditions and this limited the crop and reduced the vineyard yields. The summer was sunny, but not hot and the temperatures rarely exceeded 95 degrees. By mid-September the summer heat disappeared and temperatures from that point on did not exceed 70 degrees. Most of October was sunny and quite cool. The sun allowed the skins and flavors to ripen while the cool temperatures kept the Brix (sugar) levels low and retained lovely acidity in the wines.
