Abacela 2003 Grenache (Umpqua Valley)

Abacela remains the single most iconoclastic winery in the entire Northwest, pioneering unusual estate grown varietals in Oregon's oft-neglected mid-section, the Umpqua valley. And doing it well, in all respects. The grenache is a bruiser, extracted, sappy and tannic, well made for its size, though lacking the super sweet extract of the Australian versions. Still it's a tasty wine, chewy and blocky, but perfect for pizza. Paul Gregutt
