Our flagship red made to please a crowd, the 2020 Vin de Days Rouge is the product of a classic, moderate Willamette Valley vintage. Fruit set was light due to weather at flowering, so all of the fruit had a pleasing intensity of character. Twothirds whole clusters were used and the wine went through partial carbonic maceration. This fermentation method yields a vibrant, bright red fruit profile with high-toned aromas of tart cherry and raspberry along with a perfumed floral component reminiscent of violets. There is a beguiling secondary complexity in the form of white pepper and crushed gravel, a reflection of the significant proportion of Pinot Meunier in the blend. Persistent acidity and racy red fruits define the flavor profile, but again the Meunier keeps everything balanced with a slight volcanicobsidian streak on the mid-palate. Pinot gris added yellow and red raspberry as well as lifting up the acid. Finely tuned tannins wrap up the finish and bring you back to the glass again and again. Dangerously drinkable is the most appropriate description of this wine.
