9th Anniversary blend of English and French bittersweet apple cider cultivars that are locally grown - Dabinett, Michelin, Chisel Jersey, and Reine de Pommes. Good head on pour. Syrupy and orangey flavors, almost dry, slightly bitter finish. Good quaffing or sipping here. 6.4.% alc/vol — 10 days ago
The winemaker for PG has referred to the 2018 vintage as the best raw material they’ve ever seen. With the gravitas of this producer and their previous work at Torii Mor & other places, that’s high praise. If this entry level cuvée is a good indicator, then look out. Great power & finesse already and a simply enchanting nose. Few producers cover Oregon as completely as Patricia Green and you can taste the deft hand behind this vintage and bottling. Get some. — 6 days ago
Wednesday night and I have opened the 2016 Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
On the nose there is beautiful fruit, cherry, cranberry, raspberry, clove, matchbook, smoke, wet leaves and earth.
On the palate there is bing cherry, cranberry, raspberry, clove, spice, hibiscus and earth.
This wine is medium bodied and a smooth mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that moves into a medium to long spicy dark fruit finish. Only two more days left to the work week and then the weekend. Stay safe and have a great rest of the week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 7 days ago
Not usually a Pinot noir girl but this one is very good with fish or another light meat. Had it with pirogies love it!! — a day ago
Soda fountain suicide - this is that. RedWhitePink is a suicide of six grapes - Pinot Gris, Mondeuse, Viognier, Blaufrankisch, Ribolla, Gruner. Reds treated like red, whites like white, then blended. It’d be “illegal” in Europe, hence the wine’s nickname. It’s kind of a mind trip but any singular reference point would probably lead you to Tavel.
Glowing magenta. Sour cherry lozenge, bitter blood orange, mild woodsy notes and grippy tannins.
And of course, Dr. Pepper at the end. — 21 hours ago
