2016 King Estate Quail Run Roussanne Marsanne

2016 King Estate Quail Run Roussanne Marsanne

Tasting Notes

This rich and succulent wine is unique in its ability to showcase delicate flavors such as apricot and honeysuckle while retaining a full-bodied roundness that is complemented by balanced oak. The nose has generous notes of cantaloupe, honeysuckle, vanilla bean and toast. The wine makes a rich and round entrance on the palate, boasting flavors of apricot, honeysuckle, dried tea leaves and sweet French oak. The layers of fruit and oak notes provide nuanced complexity to the mid-palate. The finish is elegant and lingering.

Vineyard Notes

Quail Run Vineyards was established in 1989 in the warmer growing region of southern Oregon. The history of this classic blend of Roussanne and Marsanne is rooted in France’s Rhône Valley. Our blend comes from the warm climate of Oregon’s Rogue Valley. Each grape brings unique characteristics: structure and slightly more acid from Roussanne; richness from Marsanne; and silkiness with apricot notes from Viognier.

Winemaker Notes

The fruit is 100% barrel fermented in French oak barrels, then aged sur lie for seven months in French oak, 35% new.
