Passive Aggressive 2010
The hot summer days and cool nights in the Oregon Rogue Valley provide ideal conditions for grapes particularly warm climate varietals such as Tempranillo. This Passive Aggressive 2010 by Folin Cellars, winner of the best of Oregon Wine Awards for Red Blends, is positive proof.
The wine is a unique blend of of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Tempranillo. Garnet in color, the nose is fruit forward with a totally pleasing, non-threatening black fruit palate. The Metro Wines Tasting Panel finds this wine food friendly but also an "all day long wine," that is, a glass would be delightful all on its own any time, not that we are suggesting it!, anywhere, not that we are pushing you!, for any reason or no reason at all! How's that for passive aggressive in a wine review? Seriously. You will like this blend.
Folin Cellars says: "Based on our unique Southern Oregon climate, some vintages tend to be more passive while others are more aggressive. Which one are you?"
