Wine Pick - The Oregonian

High fives to all our website readers!

Katherine Cole of The Oregonian selected our wine as her wine pick and writes some kinds words:

2009 God King Slave Rogue Valley Syrah-Tempranillo ($26): When they aren't working their day jobs at Troon Vineyard and Folin Cellars, Christine Collier, 24, and Chris Jiron, 27, are the youngest winery owners in Southern Oregon. The two are off to a fine start with their first release, this meaty, spicy, herbaceous red; they'll release a sauvignon blanc in the spring. After a couple of name changes (they're transitioning from "Long Story Short Cellars"), the pair settled on a title for their label that's taken from the famous Constantin Brancusi quote, "Work like a slave, command like a king, create like a god." It's pretty heady stuff for a couple of 20-somethings.
