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

  • Tamarack Cellars Merlot 2010


    Super fine aromatics of ink, cigar box, pencil lead, and iron are elegant and refined. This is a very seductive and sleek wine packed with super ripe tannins and lively acid that lends nice freshness to the woodsy blackberry fruit that shows a little earthy spice Finishing with superb focus and fine length, if a touch on the firm side with cutti...

  • Dunham Lewis Vineyard Estate Riesling 2012


    Very aromatic grapefruit and passionfruit aromas greet the nose followed by floral notes with with hints of dusty minerals. Huge acids on entry gain a love edge of sweetness on the midpalate which reveals layers of sweet pea, lemon pith, and pineapple flavors that persist on the long, fresh finish. A really zesty blend of gentle sweetness and ... Read More

  • Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling Columbia Valley 2013


    Floral, not overly sweet Riesling from Oregon. Went well with spicy pad thai. Great value, and not that candy cough syrup stuff you get with so many rieslings. Read More

  • Kudos Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton District Willamette Valley 2012


    Just not much going on here. Much less body than I had hoped for. Touches of smoke and ripe cherries on the nose with cherries and caramel on the palate. Unremarkable finish. I had higher expectations. Read More

    Wine review by Kimma B

  • Basically, I'm moving half of my CA wines out...what used to make up 50+% of my cellar will probably drop to around 20% eventually, maybe less. I'm about half way through this process.Burgundy is already close to 20% Bordeaux will probably take hold in the 10-15% range as it's making a small comeback for me. Mostly 2nd - 5th growths, and left ba... Read More

    Fairly heavy on the oak with not much else. Dense, creamy and oily with muted fruit and a touch of acidity on the finish. Read More

  • Canoe Ridge Reserve Cherry Street Red Columbia Valley 2010


    54% Syrah, 30% Malbec, 16% GrenacheIntense violets and pink peppercorn aromas burst from the glass followed by notes of raspberry bubble gum, licorice and baked plum tarts. Broad on entry, and perhaps a touch soft in the mouth, this is supple and rich with some wood tannins that are thoroughly covered by rich fruit that recalls rasinettes, blueb... Read More
