Tasting Notes

This barrel selection has fine, spicy red fruits, but exceptionally astringent, drying tannins. Flavors of tea leaves and cola play against sweet baking spices. 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast



Melrose Vineyards is located on the bench of the South Umpqua River where once stood an early French Settlement. It was in the Mid 1800s when the Archembeau family settled and became owners of this settlement by filing a land grant. Through the years, many different agricultural crops have been produced on this site. Melrose Vineyards' owners (Wayne and the late Deedy Parker) arrived in 1996. Wayne, with a successful 20-year history of growing grapes to be used as raisins in the San Joaquin Valley. The original vineyard of 82 acres was planted in the summer of 1996.

The Umpqua Valley sits between the Coast Range to the west and the Cascade Range to the east, with the Willamette Valley AVA to the north and the Rogue Valley AVA to the south. The appellation stretches 65 miles from north to south, and is 25 miles from east to west.
