The nose offers stone and light petroleum. Palate brings some pear, pineapple, lime and soft peach. Nice solid body, lingering apple on the finish. Very good bang for the buck. Family owned organic and biodynamic in the Willamette Valley.
Daisy Pinot Grigio $15.00
Almost Alsatian in style, Daisy is playful and dead serious. Soft citrus, and floral aromas with laser sharp acidity bringing stone fruits, lemon curd, river rock and a clean but lingering finish nuance. Body from the barrel fermentation with indigenous yeasts, further complexity from 5 months in almost neutral French oak.
Cool climate Willamette fruit blended with warm dry Umpqua fruit gives this Pinot the best of both worlds at a good price! Full ripe juicy flavor but with nice subtlety and nuance. Extremely easy drinking and the perfect partner to grilled salmon or pork loin. Herbs de Provence really bring out the character of this wine.
Browne Tribute $21.00
A Cab Sauv dominant blend with Cab Franc, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Malbec and Syrah all playing supporting roles. Dark, brambly fruits, herbaceous bell pepper and jalapeno notes on the nose. Big body and grippy tannin well balanced by its acidity. A great example of Columbia Valley.
Sokol Blosser Bluebird $22.00
A great cuvee from grapes sourced out of Oregon and Washington. Chardonnay with a little Muller-Thurgau in the blend. Apple and baked pear, shining acidity and a lovely, creamy mousse. Family owned and operated in the Dundee Hills of Oregon, a great P.N.W. sparkling, perfect with seafood or a sunny patio.
Light ruby color. The Mt Jefferson Cuvee displays crushed raspberry, strawberry and red currant aromas. There are higher tones of tomato leaf and cola berry along with some brambly notes. It follows through on the palate with a core of ripe red fruits and notes of spicy complexity (cinnamon, allspice). Lower octave flavors of truffle and forest floor are forming as the wine rounds out in the finish.
Vidon Brigita $49.00
Using clone 777 exclusively this Willamette award winner shows rich, ripe fruit of blackberry with jammy plum and a hint of herbal character. Also shows some dark cherry, cocoa and leather. Best of their clonal selections with great complexity and a lengthy finish.
