Spangler Vineyards 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Oregon, $39

By on August 25, 2016

spangler-cabPatrick Spangler, owner of this popular Roseburg, Ore., winery, labeled his 2013 Reserve as simply Oregon, but there’s nothing simple about the results. This wine has aromas of vanilla and red currant, then flavors of red and black currants and finishes with brisk tannins and a nip of licorice. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition, and it adds to the Umpqua Valley producer’s résumé as one of the Pacific Northwest’s top producers of bold reds.
