Argentine-born winemaker JP Valot of Silvan Ridge continues to grow his own brand around and beyond Eugene. He pays tribute to his homeland in this delightful work with the Bordeaux variety that has helped make Argentina famous. Kelly Vineyard in the Rogue Valley was the source, and the color carries this enticing strawberry juice color, supported by aromas of strawberry ice, rhubarb, Douglas fir tips tea and lime oil. As a result of the grape variety used, there’s some nice weight to the palate, a bit reminiscent of flannel as boysenberry, Rainier cherry and blueberry juice come together in a virtually flawless fashion. Get this while you can because production was quite limited.
