Troon Vineyard | Vermentino Black 2014
Vermentino hails from the windblown islands and coasts of western Italy’s Tyrrhenian Sea. At Troon Vineyard, in the shadow of Oregon’s Siskiyou Mountains, this wine whispers softly on the palate, like a sea breeze.

Vintage Summary: 2014 was another classic vintage for the Applegate benchlands of Southern Oregon. Early budbreak, warm Spring weather, and moderate heat most of the Summer. Late September and early October brought cooler weather for flavor ripening and harvest. Perfect conditions for Vermentino.
