Amity Hills: Stonecreek- 1st Expression 2017
Facing southeast and sitting at 600 feet in elevation, Stonecreek is a thread of densely packed basalt rocks with deep fractures and abundant “bubbles” formed in the rock on its long journey from the cataclysmic eruptions that caused the Columbia Basalt Flow. A core of mineral driven precision blanketed in fireworks of sweet red fruits with no trivial decorative flavors or aromas.
