Analemma Tinto 'Mosier Hills' Columbia Gorge 2016
Analemma is headed by Steven Thompson and Kris Fade, located in the heart of the Columbia Gorge. The duo farms all fruit organically and biodynamically, believing that this is the best way to highlight Oregon’s many unique microclimates. ‘Mosier Hills’ is a Tempranillo dominant blend aged for 14 months in neutral oak. Notes of red currants and ripe figs dominate the palate, with gritty tannins leading to a lasting finish.

Just southwest of Portland is some of the world's greatest Pinot Noir, planted in sedimentary soils left by the Missoula Floods, cooled by Pacific air sneaking through gaps in the Cascades.
