Fun and warm-spirited, our 2016 Red Fusion brings together Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, creating this unique red blend.
The palate opens with smooth notes of plum, dried cherry and fig. Hints of black pepper
and cocoa carry this wine into a lingering finish.
A great companion to the dinner table as we move into the autumn months, this wine
makes a versatile pairing option and is an excellent choice with all your favorite comfort
foods. As you try this wine with different dishes, you might discover new flavors as the
ingredients compliment the distinct varietals within this blend.
The 2016 growing season in Oregon mimicked the previous few vintages with one of the
earliest bud breaks yet. Spring came quickly with warm days that turned into temperate
summer months. Bloom saw a miniature heat wave that tapered the size and set of the
fruit. Though the growing season got off to an early start, the more even summer temperatures
slowed things and allowed the fruit to develop thoroughly with delectable complexity
and intense flavor. The vintage resulted in, once again, extraordinary fruit quality, but with
yields closer to pre-2014 vintages.
46% Pinot Noir
8% Cabernet Sauvignon
