This wine's name refers to the floods that brought seismic change to the Willamette Valley millennia ago. It's as soft and smooth as a slice of blackberry pie, with cut tobacco highlights. In flavor, it's closer to old vine Lodi field blends than to typical Oregon Pinot Noir.
Rich, dark crimson red. Lush and layered notes of cranberry, strawberry jam and pomegranate mix with aromas of cocoa and spice. Elegant, bright and textured with notes of cassis, strawberry and cherry with hints of allspice and bacon. Rich and balanced with refined tannins.
Pair with roast turkey, bacon-stuffed mushrooms, cranberry-glazed beef tenderloin or chocolate-covered strawberries with your favorite person.
