The Foley Family Estate Vineyard encompasses 110 acres nestled in the Red Hills of Dundee. The Doe Ridge Estate, purchased and developed in 2005, is a 90-acre site and considered one of the most innovative new vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Additional fruit from Erratic Oaks, Hyland and Prince Hill make up the final blend. The wine aged 9 months in French oak, 15% new.
Wine Spectator scored this 90 points saying "Sleek and a bit lean, but appealing for its pomegranate, cherry, green tea and underbrush accents that build structure toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2028."
