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

  • Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Indian Wells 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has berry, chocolate and cinnamon notes and is somewhat simple compared with 2008 and 2009 vintages. Enjoyable but over priced. My rating -- 88. Read More

You might find blogging fun and rewarding, meeting others and making friends like you noted. The over 400 bloggers attending the WBC, that you already not... Read More

  • 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
