Smockshop Band Proprietary Red 'Spring Ephemeral' Columbia Valley 2016
Equal parts Grenache and Syrah, grown in Hood River, Oregon. Pale in color, aromatic, and insanely thirst quenching. Spicy, crunchy red fruit and bright acidity keep the wine light on its feet; serve with a slight chill for a perfect aperitif wine.
Oregon, United States
Just southwest of Portland is some of the world's greatest Pinot Noir, planted in sedimentary soils left by the Missoula Floods, cooled by Pacific air sneaking through gaps in the Cascades.
