Gran Moraine Vineyard was originally planted just east of Carlton in the Yamhill-Carlton district as part of the Premier Pacific project, and today is over 10 years old, and the wines are made by the highly experienced Shane Moore. The Wine Advocate loved this wine's delightfully fresh and vibrant bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry scents accompanied by a lovely floral note. The palate is plush with raspberry and blueberry displaying a fine line of acidity. One to grab by the case.
