Bri's Blend is one of the only true Willamette Valley Red Blends and is a great example of two varietals coming together to highlight their best and beautiful, little known characteristics of both varietals.
This is the second vintage we barrelled Marechal Foch and Pinot Noir together allowing them to grow in to a delightfully fruit forward, spicy and structured wine.
The palate is softer than the color suggests. It is fruit forward, with hints of vanilla, orange blossom, white pepper and earth.
While “Briana the Marechal Foch Purest and Fanatic” found it extremely upsetting that Dave had blended her Marechal Foch with any other varietal; her shock and immediate love for this wine overcame her purest attitude. After time Briana was very excited to lend her name to the bottle.
We look forward to the challenge of finding a food pairing the Bri’s Blend does not compliment.
