Ferryman’s Choice is our vehicle for small, distinctive releases. In 2014, we decided to highlight the Cabernet Franc from Alder Ridge Vineyard. The wine is rich and spicy, with savory notes of baker’s chocolate and roasted spices overlaying a core of raspberry and cassis. Moderate tannins and subtle oak influence round out the palate.

Wine Profile
Food Pairing Notes
The spicy character of this wine pairs well with Oaxacan cuisine, especially mole sauces, as well as meatballs in tomato sauce, mushrooms, and any dish containing fresh herbs.
Production
Cabernet Franc is one of the parent grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon (along with Sauvignon Blanc). The grape is known for producing savory, herbaceous wines that are medium bodied, with moderate tannins and juicy acidity.
Other Notes
The Ferryman’s Choice label is based on a 2011 painting that hangs at the Wilsonville McMenamins Pub. The title is “Boone Ferryman”, and the name “Charon” appears at the top of the original in Greek characters. The painting overlaps the ancient Greek story of Charon, the Ferryman of the River Styx, with Wilsonville history. Alphonso Boone, a grandson of Daniel Boone, came to the Oregon Territory in the 19th Century and established a ferry service on the banks of the Willamette River at what would later be the town of Wilsonville. Here, Alphonso is depicted as a kind of Charon of the Wild West.
