Highly Recommended. Lithe and delicately complex, offering rose petal and tart blueberry aromas, with effortlessly balanced raspberry, river rock and spice flavors that finish with refined tannins. Drink now through 2022. 594 cases made."
"Lingua Franca was inspired by an extraordinary vineyard site in the Eola-Amity Hills of the Willamette Valley. Our name represents a fine tradition of universal language, bringing people of different worlds to common ground – shared conversation, shared enjoyment.
The fruit for this cuvée comes from one of the oldest vineyards in Oregon, with rocky, Jory soil. After 14 months in barrel, it has been tamed, showing medium weight, with red and black fruit and some crystallized preserve notes. The finished wine is round, smooth and gamey, with plum dumpling and spice flavors and dark undercurrents of smoke, tar, flint and roasted meat." -Winery
