I smoke on the mic like “Smokin’ Joe” Frazier
The hell-raiser, raisin’ hell with the flavor.

Light bodied red for your late summer blues. Earthy and smooth, full of blue fruits and white pepper. Co-fermentation of Rhone varieties. Grenache Noir, Syrah, and Viognier are always in play, as well as Marsanne and Roussanne in certain vintages.

The two Soif wines are produced from grapes sourced in the Applegate Valley, about six hours south of our estate. The vineyards are overseen by our friend Herb Quady and Applegate Vineyard management. These wines provide us the opportunity to step outside the box of plant material the Willamette Valley’s climate has to offer.

The fruit is destemmed and co-fermented with a small amount of whole cluster at the bottom of each bin. The ferments see daily pigéage for one week before being pressed off into stainless steel tank. From there, the fermentation finishes in stainless steel, and then is moved to neutral French oak for aging. Bottled without any fining or filtration.
