This wine shows a ruby color with purple hues. Aromas of ripe plum and tart blackberry mingle with hints of spearmint and oak. The flavors mimic the aromas with additional notes of spice and cocoa. Moderate tannins and a smooth texture round out a fruity finish that lingers on savory spice.
Ransom Farms is located in the Willamette Valley – in the foothills of the Coastal Mountain Range. We purchased a forty-acre farm outside of Sheridan, Oregon in 2008. Barley has been planted since 2008, and our first vines were planted in the spring of 2010. In keeping with our commitment to sustainability and stewardship, our farm has been certified Organic since 2011.
Handpicked fruit was destemmed and carefully fermented in small lots and gently pressed at dryness. The wine was aged eighteen months in mixed French cooperage before being blended and bottled.
Pairs well with vegetarian dishes and mushrooms.
