  • About this winery

    Sokol Blosser is one of the pioneering estates of the Oregon state wine industry. In 1971 when Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol Blosser began converting an old prune orchard into a vineyard they became one of five bonded wineries in the region.

  • Tasting notes

    Aromas of black tea and ripe raspberries, followed by bright flavors of rainier cherries, with a subtle white pepper on the finish. Pair with wild salmon, seared Ahi tuna, grilled venison sausage, duck, pork and rack of lamb.

  • Viticultural notes

    2015 showed record heat growing degree days, which encouraged the earliest bud break and bloom since the winery's beginning in 1971, and one of the earliest harvest dates on record. The large crop required fruit thinning to ensure that there was fermentation space in the cellar. The winery has never seen a hotter year in Oregon. The one constant about growing grapes in this region is that every year is different and special. 2015 was a huge serving of both.

  • Winemaking notes

    Handpicked, handsorted and carefully destemmed. Made with 100% Estate organic grapes, certified by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. 100% barrel-aged in French oak for 17 months with 37% new barrels.

    Expressive raspberry and violet aromas open to trim and focused stony mineral, tea and savory cherry flavors that finish with slightly taut tannins.

    February 2018

    Vivid red. Lively aromas of red berries and candied rose carry peppery spice and vanilla overtones. Juicy and supple on the palate, offering ripe raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. Fine-grained tannins build slowly on the long, sappy finish, which features echoing red fruit and vanilla notes.
