Husband and wife team Scott and Dana Frank have experience all sides of the wine industry. They recently embarked on a new project producing wines under their own label Bow and Arrow and are taking Oregon wines to new heights! They only started bottling in 2010 but have quickly earned a reputation for bringing a bit of the Loire to the Pacific Northwest. They source fruit from vineyards planted by some of Oregon’s earliest ‘wine pioneers’. These carefully sourced grapes are treated with the greatest care and minimal-intervention winemaking techniques.
Vivid in colour, this wine has juicy, primary fruit with lovely fresh cherries. Medium-bodied, it is grippy with soft red fruit flavours and an earthy and granite-based minerality and tart finish.
