Where can I find a delicious Cabernet? Is it unheard of in Oregon?

You’re in luck! Even though Oregon is definitely famous for Pinot Noir, that is not to say that Cabernet is left out. Turn your attention to Southern Oregon Wine for a bounty of bold reds including Cab, Merlot, Tempranillo, Syrah, Zinfandel, and others. I really enjoy those by Troon Vineyard and Cliff Creek Cellars. Soléna Estate and Zenas Wines have some great options too using fruit sourced from southern Oregon. While the former two are based in Southern Oregon, all four have tasting rooms in Carlton, OR if you’re in the Willamette Valley. Hope this helps get you started!

    Willamette Valley also has some bold reds, Chateau Bianca has Syrah, Tempranillo and Molten (a cab, merlot, syrah blend) under the label Obsidian…Namaste has a nice red also, Firesteed puts out a nice Rose red….
