2016 Griffin Creek Griffin

2016 Griffin Creek Griffin

— Wine Club & Owner Exclusive —

For more than two decades we have been working with growers Don and Traute Moore, crafting the highest-quality wines from their Rogue Valley vineyards since 1989. With temperatures similar to France's Bordeaux or Rhône regions, this area is an emerging Oregon region.

On the Nose: Garnet in the glass, the wine opens with a complex nose of plum, black cherry, vanilla, tobacco and cedar.

On the Palate:
Flavors run the spectrum of red, blue and black fruit, dark chocolate and leather with layered spiciness of anise and clove. The full-bodied mouthfeel, firm tannins and balancing acidity work in harmony to create a Bordeaux blend of interest and age-worthiness.

Food Pairings: Filet mignon, duck breast with fruit compote, flank steak with porcini mushrooms, roasted red pepper with sausage wood-fired flatbread and dark chocolate-based desserts.

Peak Drinkability: 2020 - 2026.

Breakdown: 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot.
