Sourced from Quail Run Vineyards in Southern Oregon, owned by dedicated growers Don and Traute Moore who are known for being Southern Oregon’s most celebrated producer of premium wine grapes.
The 2011 vintage was dominated by a cool and late growing season, but the wines it produced have been superb. Concentrated fruit flavors are balanced with bold aromas while the acidity and lower alcohol levels insured ageability in the wine cellar.
On the Nose: Ruby in color, the wine opens with a nose of blackberry, anise and minerality.
On the Palate: Opulent, juicy black cherry and caramelized sugar notes emerge. The bright acidity creates dimension to the fruit and leads to a plush finish of velvety tannins.
