X Saxa Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Aligote 2020

Very light lemon yellow color. Tight and shy on first sniff….then high bright lemon/ lime and tart Granny Smith aromas. Crisp, mineral, unoaked, light in weight, a hint reductive initially; then opening up with zingy acidity that tiptoes across the palate. The wine opens beautifully as it warms and works well with yellowfin crudo and Chicken breast Romesco. The low ABV and lively acid make for a long, interesting finish. By far my best Aligote ever. — 11 days ago

Sweet P Brooks Estate Vineyard Riesling 2014

2014; Father's Day 2022.
👅 Apple juice, dehydrated nectarine, green banana peel, faint vanilla creme, old vinyl | 👅 Honey drizzle over fresh apple pie, under-ripe yellow apple, white peach. Considerably more advanced than our prior bottle, seems some bottle variation here, but one more bottle in the cellar for confirmation.

Big Table Farm

Laughing Pig Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

Light salmon in color with a pink hue.

Fruity nose of raspberries, strawberries, cherries, spices, light herbs, citrus, limes and light vegetables.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, earth, spices, citrus, pears, red apples, minerals and white pepper.

Nice finish with spices and limes.

This is a very tasty Rosé from Oregon. Nicely balanced with a soft and elegant mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and very easy to drink, so watch out.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

100% Pinot Noir grapes. Unfiltered and unfined. A small production of only 450 cases.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Another great year. This Pinot blanc sells out each year and I was lucky they had a couple bottles left for me to purchase. It has a melon and lemon finish and is crisp! — 12 days ago
