Alberto 2018 $25 This is a classic Rioja blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Graciano from a dry-farmed, own-rooted vineyard on the northern edge Willamette. The grapes are co-fermented with native yeast in old French barrels, where it ages for about a year before getting bottled unfined and unfiltered with barely any sulfur added. Medium plus with black cherry and baking spice. 125 cases made.
For Bruce 2018 $25A nod to the northern Rhone, this is Syrah from a 25 year old vineyard planted by Bruce and Brad Biehl, hand harvested and wild fermented with the skins from an orange wine Jeff made from Viognier. The wine aged in used French oak for about a year and it was bottled unfined, unfiltered and with just a little sulfur added. Again, medium plus with blue and purple berry fruit and crushed flowers with a nice savory streak. 204 cases made.
