A new project from Gus Janeway, showcasing his careful and detailed touch with Rogue valley grapes. The blend is 30% malbec, 30% cabernet sauvignon, 21% merlot, 12% cab franc and 7% syrah, but rather than being a smorgasbord it is a focused, complex and layered wine that all knits together. Most telling, Janeway has successfully tamed to tough, rugged tannins that are the biggest challenge for southern Oregon reds.
