"We wanted to take advantage of the opportunities building green presents," said Hamacher. "Green buildings take a longer view of costs and quality to create healthy, resource-efficient developments.

    Pretty good Willamette pinot. Bright red and crushed black cherry, nice acidity, a touch of smoke and a decent finish. The finish is of medium length and the tannins are a bit grainy for pinot. Read More
