Tasting notes

Red-Tail Red, our house red blend, has been a great source of artistic expression for our winemaking efforts. We believe we have been able to provide significantly more focus for this wine with our 3rd rendition. In the v.3 Cabernet Sauvignon once again plays the prominent role making up fully half the blend with Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the background. We ended up with a tremendously fruit forward wine filled with intense blackberry and boysenberry fruit aromas with hints of cedar, pipe tobacco, and blueberry compote that needed some additional structure and a bit of "joie de vivre" to fit our desired profile. The choice of Syrah as the finishing touch, certainly not by accident, gives the wine lift on the finish while also bringing in an untamed flare of personality that balances the ripe black fruit, sweet oak and caramel flavors in a way that reminds us of how beautiful, and rugged, the Rogue Valley can be. This wine will be freshest from 2018 through 2021 and should provide an additional 2-3 years of enjoyment following. We like this wine with dry rubbed tri-tip on the smoker, grilled fennel, and roasted garlic potato mash.
