What’s in My Glass? Hinman Vineyards Rogue Red

Although I taste wines from all over Oregon and Washington, sometimes I find wines that were made within a few miles of my own home. This particular occasion I found a bottle of the 2009 Hinman Vineyards Rogue Valley Red Wine. I’ve had the 2008 version in the past and absolutely loved it, so when I found the 2009 I had to try it.

This was a blend of mostly Syrah, but with a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. All grown in the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon, this was a big wine with booming flavors. It was plump with berry flavors like blackberries and cherries and had a little tannic kick on the end. I picked this up for less than $15 at my nearby grocery store. This is about as local as it gets. For any red wine lovers out there this really is a must try. Cheers!
