2019 Fortune Favors
Mae’s Vineyard is a LIVE-certified, sustainable site in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon, owned and grown to organic standards by Herb Quady. Back in 2013, Brianne was very excited to learn that Herb was growing Tannat, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec all side by side, and the idea for this unique red field blend took shape. The fruit was grown together, picked together, and fermented together—a co-fermented approach that integrates the varietals’ characters from the outset. Dark and inky, the ’19 Fortune Favors expresses layers of fruit, spice and earth, with forgiving-though-firm tannins and overall warmth. Drinking well now, this wine will also age nicely for many years to come.
