Day Wines, Vin de Days Rouge Willamette Valley 2021 (750ml)
Our flagship red made to please a crowd, the 2019 Vin de Days Rouge is the product of a classic, cool Willamette vintage. The 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 geraniums. 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 smoky, volcanic streak on the mid-palate. A crisp and refreshing finish brings you back to the glass again and again. Dangerously drinkable is the most appropriate description of this wine.
