Cana’s Feast is a winery located in the Willamette Valley of the State of Oregon and nestled in the little town of Carlton. Its focus is to not make wine from Oregon grapes but to use fruit from Washington State – definitely a concept that sets it apart from most of its competition in that area.

Nose: Strawberry patch, vanilla, leather, cherry-whip, tobacco and a nice hint of tar bubble.
Taste: A very new-world, fruit-driven table wine that I know will be adored by many but not those who prefer an old-world style. It has good body, mouthfeel and a pretty solid finish. It’s a bit heavy on the oak for my palate but I totally “get it” and would easily pound it all day long with pizza, hamburgers or even certain game dishes.
