Flooded Orchard Syrah 2015

Oregon Syrah drinking beautifully! Savory with loads of violet, blackberry, and faint smoked meat. Not very peppery. It is my understanding that this producer is no longer around and unfortunately this was my last bottle. But we made it count paired with flank steak in a charred scallion sauce with sautéed broccoli. — 23 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Rosé 2020

Willamette Blush, Willamette Valley, 68/20/12 blend of Auxerrois, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Good acidity, light skin astringency on finish, light cherry-berry and lactic notes but mostly orchard fruit flavors. Unusual wine, tannin backbone gives it real character. — 6 days ago

South Hill Cider

Stone Fence Farm Single Orchard Cider Still and Dry

This is beautiful. Smells like an orchard. There’s grass, apples, citrus, some funky hay, lovely. Palate is bigger than expected with apple pie, lemon, hay, well balanced acidity, some funk. Really like this one. Batch 019 — 10 hours ago

Bouzeron Aligoté 2019

Definitely more tart than its chard burg counterparts, but a nice citrusy acidity with a bit of chalkiness and orchard fruit. Definitely will revisit! — 13 days ago

Domaine Julien Pilon

Frontiere Terroir de Seyssuel Viognier 2020

This is a terrific Condrieu lookalike. Intense nose has deep orchard fruit and a Muscat-like musk. Lots of low-toned crushed rock minerality. In the mouth it’s got deep ripe fruit that asymptotically verges on Gewurz but pulls away and gets intense minerally on the finish. Nice acids for a Viognier. Great value. — 10 days ago

Willamette Valley Rose Of Pinot Noir 2020

Nice winery, nice owners and welcoming staff. Brought home a bottle and drank it, chilled. Reddish pink, excellent clarity. Floral aroma, cherry-berry and orchard fruit flavors, crispish finish. Cherry and tart apple aftertaste., with a hint of malolactic in there. You can taste the Pinot noir in this one. Quaffable, perfect for sharing on a warm summer evening. — 3 days ago

Cantina del Taburno

Beneventano Amineo Coda di Volpe

Very closed on night one, on night two it’s got delicate and very pure orchard fruit on the nose, along with fresh straw, and lots of cracked stones. Very crisp and minerally in the mouth, with some weight and really nice acids. Reminds me a little of good Muscadet, with a tad more weight but minus the quinine. — 13 days ago
