When guests ask us, "what is the perfect red wine to bring to dinner?" - we almost always suggest our Red Fusion. It's a beautiful blend of our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with a bold punch of Tempranillo and Syrah sourced from Southern Oregon. It really blends the best of red wine in Oregon - it will please those looking for a nice Pinot Noir, but are looking for a little something extra.

A Note from Winemaker, Leo Gabica
“I have really enjoyed blending and crafting our Red Fusion each vintage. Pinot Noir is a delicate and elegant wine - it's really fun to find creativity in allowing it to shine, but bring a few other varietals into the mix. I don't often use Tempranillo in our Red Fusion blends, but for 2021 I was really inspired by the texture. I feel you will get the tannin structure in the mid-palate of the Tempranillo, and find the Syrah in the finish. The 2021 Red Fusion is ideal if you have someone who enjoys a Pinot Noir and someone who wants more bold flavors. I aged the Pinot Noir in our French oak barrels and the Tempranillo and Syrah in our hybrid French-American oak barrels. All of the wines were aged for 10 months before blending and bottling. I keep a case of Red Fusion on hand for my dinner table - next time you find yourself in the area, come on by - you always have a place at my table. ”
