Emerson Vineyards – Brother Red

21 04 2011

For the 2nd installment of my favorite wines/vineyards on Five Star, I’ve decided to highlight Tom and Emerson Vineyards.  In addition to being one of the nicest people I’ve ever met at a winery, he makes some damn good wines.  My wife loves his reisling as do I but this new 5 grape blend, Brother Red, is quickly becoming one of my faves.  It’s reasonably priced and full flavored.

As before, here’s their own description as I’m sure it does a better job than I would.

Brother Red is no typical Oregon wine. Inky and purple, this bottling offers up big, ripe, brambly fruit aromas, hints of toasty oak, and racy overtones of smoke, pepper, and rocky earth. The palate of the wine is rich and mouth-coating, dominated by sweet blackcurrant and blackberry flavors. Floral, perfumy, and minty accents evoke famous Rhone wines and add complexity and character. Moderate tannins and balanced acidity are will integrated into the intense, fruit-driven finish. Pair with steak, lasagna, or falafel.

Thanks for the suggestion Tom – where do we find this particular vintage and how much??

It’s $16.00 a bottle if you get it at the vineyard (and I recommend that you do that!). Go give Tom a visit and tell him I sent ya!
