Penner-Ash

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2021

2021 vintage. Well-made. Slightly plushy but verry pricey for just Willamette Valley juice. Would spend the extra ca$hi$h for single vineyard offerings from this producer this vintage. 5.1.24. — 17 days ago

Quilceda Creek

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Deep garnet in color with a nice bouquet of mint and an old closet! Eucalyptus and herbaceous notes support dry blackberry brambles amid nicely evolved tannic structure. This wine remains at its peak of expression. — 24 days ago

Domaine Drouhin

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2022

Burgundian notes, earthy but with notes of black fruit and even some strawberry. 1 hour decant definitely helped it open more. — 19 days ago

Columbia Valley Riesling 2022

This wine has barely any color at all, just a very faint yellow-green tint. The nose is nice. There is a slight trace of petrol, which I always love to find in a Riesling. More dominant is a lanolin note which joins a light floral aroma. The palate straddles the fence between dry and sweet, offering up some tasty stone fruit and a savory side marked by gentle spices and a workable acidity. I would like a drier wine better, but I drank this quaff gladly and poured another. — a month ago

Armada Vineyard Syrah 2013

Ten years on, starting to settle down. Still some bacon notes that work with burgers, but no new magic. — 7 days ago

Bionic Frog Walla Walla Valley Syrah

A garnet-purple color and expressive nose with that initial Cayuse funk and notes of red berries. smoked meat, herbs, bark and dusty like minerals. Taste: beautiful silky and soft feel. Red berry fruit stands out with gamey meat, iron & bitter chocolate notes and a metallic medium, plus finish. Was looking forward to opening this 2016 again and it did not disappoint! — 21 days ago
