Southern Oregon shines with grapes from the Iberian Peninsula, which includes Rhone varieties, and the Moore family worked with Medford winemaker Linda Donovan for their Grenache bottling. Toasted oak aromas are joined by dried black currant, dark cherry, fig, saddle leather, black olive and pickling spices. On the palate, it’s much more fruit-driven with bold and dark flavors of blackcap raspberry, cola, dark cherry and plum. The structure is built upon pomegranate acidity that finishes nicely with cassis and cranberry. Suggested pairing components touch on Gouda, Jarlsberg and fontina cheeses, seafood such as ahi tuna, mackerel and salmon, turkey and spicy or herbed fare.
