K&L Notes

Winemaker notes: Founded by winemaker and owner Brianne Day in the 2012 vintage, Day Wines is a producer of boutique, artisanal bottlings from Applegate Valley in the south to Yamhill-Carlton in the north and numerous other AVAs in between. We source from outstanding organic and biodynamic vineyards. Mae’s Vineyard is a LIVE-certified, sustainable site in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon, owned and grown to organic standards by Herb Quady. The vines are 11 years old and thrive in the healthy, volcanic soil full of rich organic material (along with chunks of quartz). The 2016 vintage of Hock & Deuce is exactly what we set out to produce with this wine. In a nod to the traditions of Côte Rôtie, the wine is a co-ferment of Syrah and Viognier. But in a New World sense of style, the proportion of Viognier is elevated, in this case to 20% of the blend. The amped up presence of Viognier serves to temper the otherwise savage character of the Syrah, leaving us with a Côte Rôtie that went to charm school. No hard edges to be found on this beauty even at this young age, as it shows aromas of black cherry, blackberry, dried violets, and a hint of new leather. The medium-bodied palate is tightly wound at first but eventually folds out into robes of sleek tannins framing cool blue fruits and white pepper. Not to be forgotten, the Viognier contributes a lush plum character to the mid-palate, as well as a blooming floral undertone. It's quite the marriage of brawn and beauty.
