Name of varietal: Pinot Blanc

Parentage of the grape: genetic mutation of Pinot Noir
 
History of the grape: Pinot Blanc was first grown in Burgundy and Champagne, France, and can be traced by some sources as far back as the 1st century. For a long time, little distinction was made between it and Chardonnay, however a number of vintners who knew what they were doing began producing it as a varietal release. It eventually came to prominence in the Alsace region, where it is one of the four most common grapes grown there. It made its way across Europe and to other parts of the world from there and is now a popular grape in cooler climate regions where it is most able to thrive. 
 
Characteristics of the grape: light to medium-bodied, acidic, grapefruit rind, peach, apricot, canteloupe, honeysuckle, white pepper

The cork snaps off in the neck, or wors... Read More

  • Panther Creek Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Winemaker's Cuvée 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, brooding red with a nose of sweet strawberry with some tobacco and leather - but not the sweaty, horse-harness leather we love to hate in these New World wines. Good depth and meat upon entry with chocolate cream and strawberries dominating the flavor profile. Very well structured and balanced with ability to age an additional 4-5 years.... Read More
