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.
