Located just three miles from the famed Freedom Hill Vineyard in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range, Giving Tree Vineyard is a relatively cool site, with a climate shaped by winds that blow regularly, cooling the vines, lengthening the growing season, and helping the fruit retain excellent acidity resulting in wines that are built for ageability.
A deep dark purple wine, with an abundance of floral and fruity notes. Crunchy red fruit interlaced with mountain pine and wild herbs greet the nose. On the palate, acidity is key, followed by very ripe tannins, creating a savory experience. It is juicy, but not jammy, as the acidity and brightness of the fruit remain quite persistent. The finish is dry and slightly rustic, showing the wild nature of the site and the great aging potential within.
