Oregon’s cool climate has made it a source of acclaimed Pinot Noir, but this red makes a case for the region’s Syrah, too.
What You Need To Know
Most of Oregon is too cool to grow Syrah, the signature grape of France’s northern Rhône Valley. But in the southern part of the state, not far from the California border, the Rogue Valley gets warm enough to ripen this heat-loving grape. RoxyAnn owner Jack Day took a chance by planting Syrah on his Rogue Valley property a decade ago, but risk-taking might be in his genes—he comes from a family that helped pioneer Oregon’s orchard farming business in the early 1900s. Warm days and cool nights give this Syrah its spicy, vibrant fruit and firm tannins.
