2013 Grand Assemblage Syrah
Sourced from the Rogue Valley, this Syrah is a pure depiction of what beautiful, sun-kissed Southern Oregon fruit can do. Our Grand Assemblage is a harmonious belnd of Syrah from Fortmiller, Sundown, and Quail Run Vineyards and was co-fermented with 1% Viognier from Sundown Vineyard. This small splash of Viognier adds floral complexity and a hint of stone fruit to the finished wine, just as it's often done in Northern Rhône. Rich, dark fruit aromas of marionberry and blueberry are accented with subtle sweet floral vanilla and plum notes. Netural barrel aging creates a smooth yet vibrant, extremely food friendly wine with great potential for aging.
