A spirited collaboration between Oregon’s wine hero, Andy Young (The Marigny) and cook + food writer, Molly Baz. It’s a self described “imperfect wine for imperfect people with impeccable taste”. This whole “don’t take it too seriously” tude is a hallmark of The Marigny’s wines and when Molly asked Andy to help her create her perfect everyday drinker, he landed on this blend resulting in a playful light, chillable red wine perfect for food, friends and fun.

From the Winemaker: 

We don't like to pick faves but this year's chillable red may be even sassier than last. It's the perfect bridge between fall and winter--light enough to enjoy on warmer days but with enough structure to last into the chillier ones. It's juicy and mouthwatering, with extreme levels of gluggablility. Think strawberry jam, swedish fish, and those beloved juicy-juice boxes of yesteryear.

What's it taste like?!?

Raspberry Jam, Italian Vacations, Cherry Fun Dip, The Memory of Summer in Fall 

How's it Made???

One part Carbonic Maceration (Merlot and Pinot Noir), one part Direct Press Rosé (Merlot), with a bit of Semi-Carbonic Gamay for depth. Fermented naturally with ambient yeasts in a combination of stainless steel, concrete and neutral barrels. Blended together in tank with a pinch of SO2 before bottling.

Optimal Drinking Situation:

Serve chilled between 45° - 65° with friends, in the sun, around the dinner table or wherever good times await

Andrew Reginald Young left behind a career as a New Orleans rock drummer in 2012 to make low-intervention wines from cooler climate vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. He works with a lot of carbonic maceration to keep the wines light, all fermented with native yeasts and minimal intervention in the winery. The name of the winery is an amalgamation on his middle name, Reginald, and his neighborhood growing up in New Orleans, St Tammany Parish.
