Day Wines Vin De Days Rouge 2020
The flagship red made to please a crowd, the 2020 Vin de Days Rouge is the product of a classic Willamette Valley vintage. The fermentation method yields a vibrant, bright red fruit profile with high-toned aromas of tart cherry, ripe raspberry and strawberry, along with a perfumed floral component reminiscent of violets. There is a beguiling secondary complexity in the form of white pepper and crushed gravel, a reflection of the significant proportion of Pinot Meunier in the blend. Persistent acidity and racy red fruits define the flavor profile, but again the Meunier keeps everything balanced with a slight obsidian-volcanic streak on the mid-palate. A crisp and refreshing finish brings you back to the glass again and again. Dangerously drinkable is the most appropriate description of this wine.
