Pioneers of the Oregon wine industry, Don and Traute Moore have been cultivating vines at their Quail Run Vineyards in the Rogue Valley since 1989, growing varietals from all over the world.
On the Nose: Garnet in color, the wine expresses aromas of blackberry, plum, black pepper and wood spice.
On the Palate: On the palate, fruit-forward juicy notes are accented by leather, smoke and game over a smooth and satin textured body, but with persistent tannins to hold up to bold dishes.
Food Pairings: Excellent with grilled meats like flank steak, braised wild boar pappardelle, bacon and blue cheese burgers and gourmet s’mores.
Peak Drinkability: 2020 - 2026
Quail Run Vineyards
Rogue Valley AVA
Pioneers of the Oregon wine industry, Don and Traute Moore have been cultivating vines at their Quail Run Vineyards in the Rogue Valley since 1989, growing varietals from all over the world. What they discovered through careful site selection and temperatures similar to France’s Bordeaux or Rhône regions was the ability to grow a “world of wine” in the Rogue Valley as the varietals flourished. Their site is now one of Oregon’s largest and highly regarded vineyards in the industry.
Quail Run Vineyards is LIVE Certified and collaborate closely with universities on multiple experiments to improve grape quality, improve soils and pest management practices.
Shortly after partnering with Quail Run Vineyards to make our first vintage in 1996,
our Griffin Creek Merlot was named “Best Red Wine in Oregon” by Wine Spectator.
