Spangler Vineyards 2015 Khayam’s Block Dolcetto, Umpqua Valley, $29

By on May 10, 2018

Patrick Spangler, Wine Press Northwest magazine’s 2018 Oregon Winery of the Year, nurtured fruit from the Khayam’s Block on his Umpqua Valley estate into an enticing, complex wine that opens with a verse of flowers and cherry fruit, then transitions to rich flavors of sweet, dark plum, huckleberry, spice and a nip of dark chocolate and vanilla. Antipasto, dried apricots and hard cheeses would pair well with it on a summer evening. This won a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 215 cases
