Tasting Note: An Oregon grenache filled with supple red-fruit and lovely aromatics.

Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of strawberry, red cherry, raspberry, red currant and rosehip.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied grenache has medium-plus-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.

Ripe in style, there are some forest floor elements that undergird the wine.


The 17-year-old Columbia Gorge AVA is a bi-state AVA that straddles Oregon and Washington.

This area, which is the wind-surfing capital of the U.S., experiences a cooling effect due to a gap in the Cascade Mountains.

Analemma Wines focuses on Spanish varietals like this grenache, and they were also the first winery to plant mencia in Oregon.
