August Cellars Marechal Foch Willamette Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Maréchal Foch is from Meadow's vineyard, We barreled aged the wine for 16 months, allowing the tannins to chain up to give the wine a smoother finish. It has a fruit forward nose with , and on the palate it is loaded with loganberry, black and red raspberry, plum and other dark fruit characteristics. This wine has a similar mouth feel to Zinfandel, Merlot, or Syrah. Saddle leather, rose petals and forrest floor on the nose with loganberries and plum on the palate. Good with big foods like Lamb, wild mushrooms, steak with blue cheese. Sugar: 0% Oak: French

August Cellars, home to multiple wineries, is located just east of Newberg Oregon at 14000 NE Quarry Rd. Our tasting room is open daily from May until the middle of October, 11-5 p.m.. We are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday year round. August Cellars believes that having multiple wineries under one roof allows the consumer to taste several different philosophies about wine with only one stop. Our in-house wineries mainly produce very small lots of Pinot Noirs, although one can always taste some of the more adventursome wines being produced here. Our goal is two fold: - Produce affordable table wines. - Keep our family farm operating. August Cellars is a family owned winery situated at the bottom of our orchards. This farm land was purchased in 1942 and our family has been farming it continuously since then. Being located in Oregon, August Cellars produces, Pinot Noirs, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztaminer and Maréchal Foch. Read less
