2015 Bordheauxd Red

$30.00

Wine Club Price: $24.00

A premier blend of Syrah, Cabernet & Merlot. Deep black fruit flavors with aromas of vanilla and cherry. This local favorite of our Board Head Community, the kiteboards and windsurfers, that color our river and is sure to be a favorite of yours as well.

Our Bordheauxd Red (pronounced Board Head Red) is a delicious blend of Echo Vineyard Cabernet, Reid Vineyard Merlot, and Reid Vineyard Syrah. Hood River and the Columbia Gorge are famous for the winds that gust through creating the perfect conditions for surfing and boarding. Because of that, kite boarders and windsurfers flock to the Gorge and are known as the Board Head Community. In the old days, they used to be called Boardheads because they carried their boards on their heads. While is was not a nice term at the time, the kite boarders and windsurfers soon adopted it. Bordheauxd Red is a clever play on the words Bordeaux and Board Head and gives homage to the colorful community that provides Hood River much of its spirit. 375 cases of this great blend were bottled in early July 2017. Pair Bordheauxd Red with a number of different appetizers and meals like tapas or Spinach and Artichoke Quiche – the recipe included with purchase.

The grapes in Bordheauxd Red came from Reid Vineyard and the Helmsley Springs Ranch, which was one of the very first in the Oregon Territory, established in 1847. The vineyard is an extremely unusual site facing a steep canyon with substantial western exposure and ground that is chiefly sand; you can even walk around in your bare feet! Owned by the Reid Brothers Doug and Dave, it used to also have a shooting preserve. While the preserve is gone now, my dog Rhett and I still have great fun hunting pheasants and chuck.
