is both the home and the leader of the modern viticultural movement in Oregon. In 1966, David Lett of the Eyrie Vineyards planted the state’s first Pinot Noir vines in the Red Hills of Dundee. It was the start of a love affair with the ‘heartbreak grape’ that has dominated Yamhill County vineyards ever since. Now home to more than 80 wineries, Yamhill County also has a number of distinct microclimates tucked into a series of hills jutting from the Coast Mountain range. Many of these distinct microclimates have recently been granted AVA status. This has only served to enhance the county’s image as the North American leaders in the promotion of distinct terroir. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Domaine Drouhin Arthur Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    One of the best chardonnay's in the mid $30 ($35 at the winery) range we've had. Creamy lemon pith, a slight touch of oak, a bit of minerality, wonderful smooth tongue coating mouthfeel, decent amount of acidity and a medium to long finish. Read More

  • Kramer Vineyards Pinot Noir Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very satisfying sparkler from one of Willamette's oldest wineries. Pink rose color with wild strawberry, tart cherry, decent acidity and a medium finish. This is not real dry but not sweet either, it walks a fine line between both, quite enjoyable. Read More

  • Remy Wines Three Wives Remy's Red Or/Wa 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Mighty fine red Italian blend from Remy Wines. This is a mix of Sangiovese, Barbera and Dolcetto. A very expressive nose of stewed plums and blackberries. The layers of black and blue fruits are very well balanced against fine grained tannins, a bit of pepper and some mouth watering acidity. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Outstanding Dundee Hills Pinot Gris. Lemon pith, lemon/lime cream, some tartness along with some smooth edges, nice acidity and a medium finish. Somewhat complex for a pinot gris with layers of citrus, rounded out by the barrel fermentation. Read More

  • Vista Hills Pinot Gris Treehouse 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet, nutty and candied on the nose witha fascnatinglycomplex array of fruit, berry, apple, lime, floral, savory/spicy and candied aromas. Sweet on entry and obviously so but in the mouth the acids here do a fine job of balancing the sweetness and while the explosion of aromas on the nose doesn't quite come across on the palate this does offer ...
