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

  • What wines are folks planning to try on this upcoming first weekend in June?  Myself and Sandra have a ballet at The Kennedy Center on Saturday afternoon, so for the evening meal (at Founding Fathers in the district http://www.wearefoundingfarmers.com/washington-dc/ff_menus/menu-bar/ ) I think something with style and grace is appropriate.  Thei...

  • Thanks for all the suggestions - and the reference for a wine to be a weekend wine JD.  I've started thinking about our next wine tasting party that we'll host in the fall this year - I want to pick a theme based on either a varietal or a region this time.  Our first wine tasting party about a month ago was asking folks to bring their favorite w...

  • 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

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...
