2020 Griffin Creek Malbec

2020 Griffin Creek Malbec

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: Deep ruby in the glass, the wine opens with aromas of mocha, baked blackberries, dark chocolate, baking spices, cedar and ripe plums.

On the Palate: The full-bodied palate is packed with lush dark fruits, cranberry preserves and dried figs. Firm tannins and balancing acidity contribute to a long, lingering finish.

Food Pairings: The bold wine holds up to various meat dishes like sweet and spicy barbecue sauces with pork ribs, short ribs, brisket and burgers. Or, pair the wine with an earthy dish like wood-fired flatbread with mushrooms, rosemary and gorgonzola.

Peak Drinkability: 2022 - 2028

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.

Founded in 1983 by Oregon native Jim Bernau with the dream of creating world-class Pinot Noir,
Willamette Valley Vineyards has grown from a bold idea into one of the region’s leading wineries, earning the title “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine
