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

  • EM - Sandra's oyster assessment:  The west coast oysters are more delicate, have a cucumber taste and the further north you get them from the better they are.  The east coast oysters are brinier, generally less delicate (larger) and again the further north you go (PEI) the better they are.DM - I'm certainly not going to address each and every ph...

  • $50-60+range: Chappellet Signature and Smith-Madrone out of Napa.Also 2nd the Washington rec's from Greg, Andrew Will.I'd look to Oregon for Pinot Noir and maybe some Chard.

  • I think JD is correct when you talk about Cab Sauv. Best is from Napa and you pay. But look at Washington. Andrew Will, Pepper Bridge, Woodward Canyon, and Betz are a few to start with. Andrew Will is a great wine for people who like classic Bordeaux.The mass-market Chateau St. Michelle Cab or Merlot is actually pretty decent for what you pay. A... Read More

  • We have arrived safely back home in Virginia.  Our flight from Seattle to Chicago was fine, but the flight departing Chicago to Washington National was delayed 45 minutes to access a dent the baggage handlers made in the cargo door.  We were worried they would ground the plane as there were no other flights (everyone was booked going into the No...
