Oregon; Washington Wine

for this region?

Columbia Valley, Willamette, Red Mountain, Yamhill, Yakima, Champoux, Klipsun, Ciel, Eola Hills, Walla Walla--these are names recognized for luscious wines rich in fruit, lower in acidity, and lovely in balance. Since land is less expensive, expect more wine for a dollar spent than for counterparts from California. Long Shadows wines, Col Solare and Ethos, all Washington-outside expert collaborations, offer some prime examples of NW wines at their best. – Description from easterner1

  • Kudos Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton District Willamette Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Nice, light to medium bodied Oregon pinot noir. Decent acidity, good black cherry, rhubarb, dark plum and dried prune overtones with a fairly long finish. Good but not great in that there aren't a lot of layers, just a straight forward dark fruit front end. Read More

  • DM,I meant it's so irrelevant, it's Forum terrorism.JD, actually we're partly surrounded by Washington State.  The islands in the middle photo belong to Washington!  The southern part of Vancouver Island (where Victoria is) is below the Canada/US border (the 49th parallel). The Oregon Treaty set the U.S. and British North American border at the ...

  • Hey Rex,We caught the wine bug years ago with a trip to Napa.  My wife and I have always traveled extensively for business and were able to meet up there at the end of a trip.  We visited a few wineries and were hooked. We never really thought about nuances between wines before, other that red or white.  It was a terrific learning experience.  H... Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher


  • Funny thing about these lava lamps - they were just for me to view since this was the desk in the den where I opened the wine bottles and placed them into several layers of newspaper bags to hide their identity.  These particular lamps allow you to turn them up too high though, so the material just stays at the top.  Now in the living room, wher...

  • Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very satisfying sparkler from one of Willamette's oldest wineries. Pink rose color with wild strawberry, tart cherry, decent acidity and a medium finish. This is not real dry but not sweet either, it walks a fine line between both, quite enjoyable. Read More

    Wine review by raindance


  • This is an interesting story with a happy ending.  We ordered three bottles of wine from Domaine Serene a while back and it arrived last Friday at the local FedEx.  I picked it up and opened the box - set the bottles in our wine racks and tossed the box.  A few days later Sandra realized that they shipped the wrong wine - we got a Pinot Noir fro...

  • Ah, another beautiful weekend out here in Virginia.  Last night Sandra and I met up with another couple (Susan and Lloyd) we know from work (where I used to work prior to retirement that is) at a little restaurant in Washington DC called 'Dish'.  They were serving some very nice dishes and both Lloyd and I ordered the New Zealand lamb chops, whi...

  • Has anyone tried Buty's Semillion-Sauvignon-Muscadelle blend (2008)? If you can find it, give it a shot. I haven't had a better white from the Pacific Northwest.
