The Jackalope is a combination of a jackrabbit and an antelope. Winemaker Corey Schuster has a long-standing fascination with the animal, and has brought its adventurous spirit with him along his serendipitous journey into the wine-making world. Like the winery’s (mythical?) namesake, this (very real) blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot is a very social animal, a wine to bring to a house party with friends or a barbeque. Grapes for this wine were taken from both sides of the river in the Columbia Gorge AVA, where bright sun, constant wind, complex soils, and abrupt elevation combine to offer grape growers a wide range of options for their vineyards. For Corey, this means complex, substantial and dark fruited wine that remains easy and quaffable. On the nose, we get blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry, vanilla bean, clove, cinnamon toast and underbrush. On the palate the fruit comes fresh from the bush, more of those blackberries and currants mixed with blueberries, dark roasted Ethiopian coffee beans – with that barest hint of citrus – baking spice and vanilla. Beautifully balanced with generous helpings of both tannin and acidity, this is a wine for the messy cheeseburger, for the short ribs, or the flank steak that takes a marinade.
