Dave Grooters has a prime estate vineyard with well-drained Wellsdale sedimentary soils located right between Tony Soter's and Ken Wright's vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA of Willamette Valley. All the grapes for this Cape Lookout are from that estate vineyard and Dave, who learned his craft working for Ken Wright for many years, does the honors as winemaker. The grapes are all hand selected and the wine aged for 10 months in 50% new French oak barrels. The Wine Spectator scored it 91 points saying "Starts off light-weight, with subtle flavors, delivering precise, cinnamon-accented cherry notes that gain momentum as the transparent finish accelerates. A wine of complexity and grace. Drink now through 2018."
