Girardet 2011 Touchdown Red (Umpqua Valley)

Named after the winemaker's emergency flight landing on the local interstate, this is an unusual blend of Landot Noir, Chancellor, Zinfandel, Syrah and Maréchal Foch, along with bits of Pinot and Gamay Noir. It brings brings aromas and flavors of green olive, tire rubber and sea breeze with mouthwatering acidity. It doesn't all fit but still piques the interest plenty. Sean P. Sullivan
