The 2013 Tempranillo shows bright, balancing acidity and a concentrated palate. Black cherry, leather and vanilla notes create inviting aromatics. The mouthfeel is big and bold with great aging potential.

A blend of three different clones, our Syrah comes from the lowest block in our Estate Vineyard. At approximately 1300 feet elevation, with sandy, gravely soil and large river rocks, which retain the heat from our hot Southern Oregon Summer days. In the evening, the warmth radiates, translating to the deep ruby color and warm spice components that are displayed in this wine.

The nose is spicy with aromas of pepper, Chinese all-spice and black licorice, intertwined with dark fruit components. The mouth feel is big and chewy with blue fruit flavors and lush, masculine tannins. A long finish with bright acidity lingers well after the last sip.
Sourced from our Estate Vineyards, our Grenache thrives in the hot dry climate of Southern Oregon. We have just over an acre of Grenache planted on a West-facing hillside. Our unique terroir provides ideal growing conditions for this classic Rhone variety. Folin Cellars is dedicated to the continued evolution of this lush, delicate and approachable wine.
Crafted from grapes grown exclusively on our Estate Vineyard in the Rogue Valley AVA of Oregon, the Passive Aggressive is an illustration of a more aggressive vintage. A unique red blend, the wine is a fine representation of our vineyard's terroir.
