Menefee is also one of the newer vineyards we work with, and we were smitten from the beginning. Cecilia McClellan and her late husband planted the vineyard in 2004 on a spectacular piece of property in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and it has become one of our favorites. It is east facing in the coastal foothills with relatively high elevations.
The soil is Jory, and the site is cooler than most -that gives us the bright acidity in the wine. The vineyard characteristically gives us wine that have classic flavors of blueberry and blackberry and a rich palate. We’ve even made some sparkling wine from this fruit – just a tiny batch – which was,
not surprisingly, quite spectacular.
