This month Quady North will be celebrating the release of their newest wine, the 2009 Ox Block Viognier.
Highlighted by Wine Spectator as a wonderful example of the varietal, this lovely wine is the first white release from their Applegate Valley estate, Mae’s Vineyard:
“…Viognier, primarily from Southern Oregon, can also be impressive, witness the polished and expressive Quady North Viognier Applegate Valley Ox Block Mae’s Vineyard 2009…” - Jan 31 – Feb 28, 2011 issue
The wine was also awarded 91 Points by Wine Spectator:
“Polished and expressive, featuring a lovely pool of almond, pear, pineapple and tropical fruit flavors that linger easily on the subtle finish. Drink now. “ –HS -Dec 31st-Jan 15th 2011 issue. 87 cases produced.
If you haven't tried last months release, the 2007 Steelhead Run Syrah, than you are really due for a trip out to the Jacksonville Tasting Room. It is a delicate Syrah with silky tannins.
