    Winemaker Notes

    46% Malbec, 46% Syrah, 8% Petit Verdot. A misalliance (mésalliance in French) is a marriage of social unequals. The name came about when I blended 30% Merlot into the '98 Cabernet Sauvignon and could no longer label it varietally. It was my all-too-subtle dig at the inferior Merlot vis-à-vis the noble Cab. In 2005, after a brief hiatus, the Més was resurrected, now, ironically, a Merlot-dominant blend. With the 2008 we are witness to what might be thought of as a third marriage, Malbec and Syrah fully sharing conjugal duties, with just a little Petit Verdot to unite them in holy vinosity.

    A deep velvety purple red is extremely enticing. On the nose this is all bright berries and violets, with perhaps a hint of pomegranate. The rich round mid-palate is quite succulent but not at all fat, the briar-fruit flavors accented with chocolate, leading into a moderately long velour finish. Quite suave and very drinkable now, the Malbec's acidity has nicely integrated but should allow the wine to age over the near term.

    Since 1995, Andrew Rich has been sourcing fruit from some of Oregon and Washington’s best vineyards to craft wines of character, authenticity, and balance. While it has been said that Andrew has never met a grape variety that he didn’t like, in fact the focus is squarely on Pinot noir from the Willamette Valley and Rhône varietals from the Columbia Valley. Still, that hasn’t prevented him from championing a single-vineyard Willamette Sauvignon blanc or creating a stunning ice wine from 35-year-old Gewürztraminer vines in the Columbia Gorge.
