Producer Description

Ransom Spirits was started by Tad Seestedt in 1997. Initially, the distillery made small amounts of grappa, eau de vie and brandy. In 1999, Ransom began the production of a number of small-batch fine wines, and In 2007 we took up the craft of grain-based spirits, adding gin, whiskey and vodka to the lineup. By 2010, we combined our crafts of winemaking and distilling to create our first Dry Vermouth. Ransom Farms is located in the Willamette Valley - in the foothills of the Coastal Mountain Range. We purchased a forty-acre farm outside of Sheridan, Oregon in 2008. Barley has been planted since 2008, and our first vines were planted in the spring of 2010. In keeping with our commitment to sustainability and stewardship, our farm has been certified Organic since 2011.Our wines exemplify true varietal character and express the individuality of our growers, vineyards, and vintages. Choosing vineyards with a commitment to quality and sustainability is always our first step, but they must also have pure expression of terroir, unique flavors. We seek out old vine, high elevation sites, many in the Eola Hills, which have the innate nerve and balanced acidity to make evocative, food-friendly wines naturally.We distill our spirits in a hand-hammered, direct-fired French alembic pot still. We make all of the selective cuts by taste and smell - without the use of computers or robots. Traditional distillation retains greater aromatic intensity and body from the raw materials we select with great care. We mash and ferment our base wort on site weekly in small batches, sourcing local and organic grains where possible and incorporating barley grown on our own farm. Our gins include the finest natural botanicals, many of which are organically grown in Oregon.Here in the green foothills of the Oregon Cascades, a new tradition of winemaking and distilling is springing to life. At Ransom Spirits, we strive daily to embody our core values of historicity, craftsmanship, and terroir. In working hard every day to make products that speak to their literal and figurative roots, we believe that we have created dynamic, terroir-driven wines and craft spirits with the weight and aromatic complexity of their predecessors.We believe that wine and spirits are a celebration of life. Drinking premium quality, handcrafted wine and spirits can compliment good food and add to the sense of delight and fulfillment found in gathering to eat and drink. It is the function of libations to enhance fellowship, discussion, and the exchange of ideas. So visit the market, invite over friends and family, and raise a toast to health and happiness through good meals, conversation and socializing! SALUD!

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
