Unmistakably exotic Cabernet Franc notes of blueberries, violets and cigar box lead the initial aromatic burst. The wine is robust and precisely focused on the palate adding additional flavors of black currant, cassis and dark chocolate with subtle tertiary notes of slate and iron. Richly textured - both silky and velvety - it finishes with fascinating complexity to ponder and enjoy.

Soter Vineyards Winery is partially housed in a refurbished Yamhill County Barn, originally dating from 1943. The barn is located off of Mineral Springs road just east of Carlton, high on a promontory lined with Douglas firs and centuries-old oak trees. Beginning in 2003, we undertook to completely clean out, refurbish, and rebuild the barn to make it suitable for making and raising the wines. We completely cleaned out many years worth of rather unsavory debris, laid a new floor, rebuilt new walls using winery-friendly materials, and installed a water-filtration system for our use.
