Oregon Solidarity

Rogue Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir 2018

Made from the grapes California feared had smoke taint; the Oregon winemakers fight back using the grapes to make this rosé in solidarity with the growers who were stiffed. Salmon pink with a slight reddish hue, excellent clarity. Strawberry, citrus and cream flavors, moderate astringency, mineral and grapefruit aftertaste. The only smoke here is in someone’s imagination. — 18 days ago

Queen D Applegate Valley White Blend 2016

32/23/23/22 blend of Vermentino, Marsanne, Rousanne and Grenache Blanc. Pale white, excellent clarity. Floral and stone fruit notes in nose. Lemon, lime, tangerine pith and stone fruit flavors, lime and mineral in finish, almost dry, robust level of acidity with a variety of acids - tartaric, citric, malic. Slight carbonation in the mouth - tactile-wise, not visually. Good food wine but Vermentino character makes it suitable as an aperitif. Grenache Blanc gives it a moderate skin astringency on finish along with an herbal (dill) and slight white pepper aftertaste. Overnight, a ripe black plum skin flavor emerges in the finish, accompanied by a tart, slightly chalky flavor, maybe from lees contact. Complex flavor profile; the varietal blend and proportions largely work here. Fun wine but still easy to drink despite the apparent complexity of its components. Creative but successful wine craft overall. — 3 days ago

Applegate Valley Vermentino

Wow! Katie and I taste a lot of Vermentino. It’s her favorite ❤️. San Felo ‘le stoppie’ (Maremma) was first wine we imported to PA. Troon 2017(Applegate Valley) is Outstanding! Mark at West End Wine (Boulder, CO) recommended. Thank You! After seeing Craig Camp again at SLOW Wine in Denver, it was a logical choice. Soft and velvety, the sapid finish urges you towards another bite, then another swirl and sip. Just the way we like it. Great price point too( under $20 on sale) 😊. #Grazie5 — 15 days ago
