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

  • Waterbrook Chardonnay Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This smells intensely of chapstick all camphory and with a hint of menthol. Waxy and with smoky, cedary nuance but it has the weirdly sweet and floral aromas of classic chapstick. With air this turns more typically oaky, the chapstick fading but not disappearing. In the mouth its a fairly big wine that is admirably light on its feet. Theres some... Read More

  • Hi Neecer, just showed my wife your first post and she recognized the car park in the background as being in Montalcino, where she enjoyed a week of vacation last year. Welcome to snooth!  We've been to Washington state and to Oregon several times and are planning our next trip to visit our son in Portland this July. You are very lucky to live i... Read More

  • After reading several of the posts here I realize that as a casual drinker I am  very much a wine novice but a recent bout with my mortality has given me a new appreciation for the things I enjoy.  Living in Washington/Oregon I have tasted many wines but most were introduced to me by friends who are much more knowledgeable than I am. I never rea...

  • Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk).  Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

  • Charles Smith Riesling Columbia Valley Kung Fu Girl 2012

    Snoothrank:

    After many years of seeing this wine get loads of accolades, I had to try it. I have tasted thousands of Rieslings over the past 40 years, as this is my favorite grape. The wine has a perfect acid balance and is on the drier side. Flavors are mostly citrus without the complexity or fruit offered in Germany. It is somewhat singular and simple but... Read More

  • Long Shadows Riesling Poet's Leap 2012

    Snoothrank:

    12.5 grams per liter residual sugarGorgeous aromatics, all lime zesty and spicy with herbal nuance greet the nose over creamy lemon pith with a hint almost cinnamon spice. A bit sweet early on the palate with nicely integrated acids. This is a little dusty on the palate showing early signs of strawberry fruit that turns more creamy and sweet w... Read More

  • Januik Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy on the nose and just a little candied with hints of licorice, creamy cocoa, and lovely nuanced nutty, hickory add detail to the cherry and blackcurrant fruit on the nose. Rich yet bright with acid, the tight, fleshy yet firm palate is rich with dark fruit cherry and currant fruit wrapped up in notes of espresso creme. Long and fairly f... Read More

  • Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A bit jammy, almost roasted and beefy on the nose with vanilla accents to the blackberry fruit, as well as some toasty wood spice as well. Bright and plump with a lovely ripe mouthfeel and rich black cherry blackberry fruit supported by dusty tannins and solids acids. A subtle hint of wood spice and just a suggestion of herb shows up on the back... Read More
