OUR STORY: In 1989 we started our foray into the wine industry by purchasing a Pinot Noir vineyard and since then have been planting Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Riesling grapes in the lush, fertile land of the North Willamette Valley, Oregon’s internationally renowned wine country. Our label is dedicated to the Spruce Goose, Howard Hughes’ famous flying boat, for its innovation and the dreams that inspired the plane’s creation.

Grocery store level.. not terrible! a very light pinot.. very drinkable, don't expect complexity/layers. Very light,and one dimensional. Opens up a bit in several hours and i get a bit of spice now.



Tasting Notes:

A medium bodied red wine with an inviting scent of rich blackberries, a sublet essence of nutmeg, pepper and a hint of vanilla. Smooth textures and long finish.
