At .8 acres this parcel is pure “alterite”. “Yamhill Close” is an unusual vineyard parcel in the Yamhil Carlton AVA as it is all finely eroded volcanic rock and no flood wash as you find elsewhere in this AVA. Dark fruit flavors are marbled with fingers of mineral flavors that rise from the weathered basalt of the vineyard. The wine has a brunette energy that propels the aromas out of the glass and the flavors to the roof of your mouth. A distinctive soft tex- ture lets the purity of the flavors sit on your pallet for an extended period.
