It comes with views of five peaks in the Cascade Range and was first planted in 1978 by the Ponzi family. Their product from the 2010 vintage flashes aromas of strawberry jam, pie cherry and toast. The palate carries a juicy entry of cherry, backed by red plum and strawberry, and capped by fresh cranberries.
