The Oregon Wine Press tasting panel blind tasted a large selection of non-bordeaux style reds for their February Cellar Selects and both our 2012 Barbera and 2012 Syrah were honored.
In the season of cozy fireplaces and wintry landscapes, turn to Oregon’s diverse red wine offerings perfect for warming you inside out. From inky Syrah to savory Tempranillo, plus interesting varietals from Italy and southwest France, Oregon wine intrigues the palates of even the most adventurous wine drinkers.
Maryhill 2012 Columbia Valley Barbera
Barbera, classic to the Piemonte (Piedmont) area of northwest Italy, finds a home in the Pacific Northwest, resulting in a savory wine smelling of tobacco leaves, smoke, roasted meat, fern, moss and muted red fruit. The palate adds dark purple berry, spicy cherry and grassy notes. On first sip, expect a burst of flavor that lingers through a long, gentle finish.
