This peppery blend of Syrah and Malbec
comes from a small, family-owned winery
in Oregon’s up-and-coming Rogue Valley.
What You Need To Know
Most of Oregon is too cool to grow
heat-loving red grapes such as Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet, the
components of this unusual blend from RoxyAnn Winery.
When RoxyAnn owner Jack Day planted Syrah on his property in
southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley more than a decade ago, he
was taking a huge risk—no one was really sure the grapes would
do well. But risk-taking might be in Day’s genes: He comes from
a family that helped pioneer Oregon’s orchard business in the
early 1900s. Buoyed by success, Day now farms 70 acres of wine
grapes, most on the sides of the 3,500-foot Roxy Ann Peak,
whose lean soils challenge vines in all the right ways. Combining
spicy, firm Syrah with plump, plummy Malbec (and a touch of
Cabernet) turns out to have been a terrific idea: This fruity red
is beautifully balanced.
Black plum and cherry notes.
