The Four Graces
STEVE AND PAULA BLACK began the pursuit of a dream in 2003 when they purchased the 110-acre vineyard located in the Red Hills of Dundee and created The Four Graces. The Four Graces is named in honor of their four daughters – Alexis, Vanessa, Christiana, and Jillian. Brother Nicholas is recognized on the Reserve as "Keeper of The Four Graces." The Blacks wanted to make consistently outstanding Pinot Noirs representative of this unique terroir. They are committed to making rich, complex wines where the fruit may be elegantly expressed in the Four Graces wines. The wines are hand-crafted in small lots using traditional techniques coupled with the most modern technology in wine-making.– Description from Mimi Kim
One of the nice Oregon whites. This one has apricot and a little not quite ripe honey dew melon flavors.

This is just a teaser to start, as I only arrived home a few hours ago after about nine days in Cuba without Internet access. That was tough, but you know what was tougher? The lack of quality wine. In fact, there was a lack of most everything we are used to in the USA, but I'll elaborate on that later - manana as they say in Cuba. First thi... Read More

My first time with Tignanello, and while this not something I'd buy in bulk it was good to have the experience.

The nose reminded me of young, yeasty Beaujolais, making me think it was still a bit too young to drink. VERY tight palate, high in acid. Flavors of bright red cherry and berry. Will be nice when it mellows out in a few years. Tasted at Marche Baucchus 11/10/12 Read More
Big tart cherry nose. Light spice and slate. Hints of lilac. Delicate currant and plum on the palate with a spicy, refined finish. Very young and tight yet.87 pts.11/10/12 Read More
This is my all time favorite Pinot Blanc. Peaches and pears on the nose are followed by perfectly balanced and vibrant flavors of mandarin orange, grapefruit and juicy green apples. The lingering finish is spirited and vivacious and down-right delicious. Read More
This is a very mellow, smooth drinking Pinot Noir with that familiar cranberry flavor that I'm finding in almost all '09 vintage Willamette Valley Pinots. It also displayes blackberries and earth. I love the super long finish and well balanced acidity. Read More
