Color collecting is about noticing and cherishing the abundance in the world. Isn't it mysterious that grapes naturally contain the perfect amount of sugar, acid, and tannin to make wine? I promise to honor this natural wonder. I promise to carefully and thoughtfully craft wines to exhibit both character and integrity.
This newest Color Collector release blends a single reserve puncheon of 2019 Gamay with a single puncheon of Gamay from 2020. The challenges of last year's Oregon wildfires pushed an exploration of winemaking outside of any lines of habit. The result is a non-vintage wine so unique in origin, it could never be replicated - even if I tried. It is riotously juicy and highly limited - hard won, and worth it.
