Lamb of God embodies the finest qualities from two of the most distinguished AVAs in the Willamette Valley: the Eola-Amity Hills and Yamhill-Carlton. Since our philosophy on oak has been to use it as a seasoning agent and not a weapon, this wine is aged in 2- to 3-year barrels. Toothsome dark fruit and a silky, voluptuous mouthfeel are shepherded into the divine concoction. Plan to sacrifice bottle after bottle.
Maison Noir Wines, founded by iconclastic sommelier André Hueston Mack in 2007, incorporates his trademark attitude and personal perspective on wine subculture. The wines are unique and distinctive garage wines, sourcing the best fruit possible in the Willamette Valley region of Oregon to produce wines that show the individuality of their respective site and terroir.
