Mini Wine Review: 2007 · Columbia Crest · Grand Estates · Merlot · Columbia Valley, WA

Go cheap. Go Washington.

If you find yourself in a grocery store with a $20 bill in your pocket and happen to need a six pack of Bud Light Wheat and a bottle of wine but just don’t feel like swiping the plastic, I have a solution. 202 more words


Wine Review: New Zealand Pinot Noir: Dashwood & Brancott

I once heard a wine writer dismiss New Zealand as serious Pinot Noir producer. If I wanted proper Pinot I must look to France, like the Côte-d’Or, and portions of California, Santa Barbara perhaps. 617 more words

Wine Review: 2007 · Groth · Sauvignon Blanc · Napa Valley, CA

Groth’s consummate workhorse, their Sauvignon Blanc—the only white wine Carey and I brought home from our Napa honeymoon. I was only going to be purchasing 2 cases—one to be mailed and the other to ride home with us under the plane. 308 more words


Wine Review: 2007 · Vista Hills Vineyard · Marylhurst · Pinot Noir · Dundee Hills · Willamette Valley, OR

When Carey and I last visited Vista Hills in March, vines throughout the valley were spottily coming to life, prematurely coaxed by the warm weather.
