Tasting Notes

Air Guitar is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Borgo Pass Vineyard located in the foothills of the Coast Range just outside of Monroe along with 40% Cabernet Franc from Johan Vineyard. This has terrific freshness with black and redcurrant, violets, blueberry and a damp earth note on the nose. The palate is juicy with dark, cherry fruit with some blue fruit undertones, a spiciness and nice, layered texture. This is a mid-weight, mouth watering wine.

Scott Frank only started bottling wines in 2010 but has quickly earned a reputation for bringing a bit of the Loire to the Pacific Northwest. Hesource fruit from vineyards planted by some of Oregon�s earliest wine pioneers that were planted with grapes like old vine Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, and Melon de Bourgogne � all typical Loire Valley grapes. These carefully sourced grapes are treated with the greatest care and minimal-intervention winemaking techniques. Their resulting wines are a breath of fresh air from Oregon, lighter in style, lower in alcohol, and extremely food-friendly.
