Why we love it: Who: Winemaker Scott Frank’s wines are down to earth interpretations of Willamette Valley’s terroir. He pays homage to the wines of Loire Valley through these humble yet elegant interpretations of France’s native grapes.
What/How: Fruit sourced from two vineyards within the southern area of Willamette Valley, Walnut Ridge Vineyard and Hughs Hollow Vineyard.
Tasting Notes: This Gamay feels like crunchy red fruit locked inside a savory, herbal shell...with miniature lightning bolts coming out the sides.
Pair With: Roasted chicken, chevre, duck with plum sauce
