When in Laguna... not many tasting rooms in Laguna, but they make up for it in quality pours! This 2015 Sonoma Valley Trevini Super Tuscan captured my ❤️ ...

Smashed cranberry, forest after rain, tart raspberry. Almost-ripe cherry, fresh lavender, juicy mulberry. Ground cardamom and white pepper, wild poppies and rose hip tea. Pure, tart, and lively berry fruit bursts with beautiful primary intensity, spilling farmstand strawberry, blueberry, and blood orange with unpretentious elegance. Violets appear and lead a waft of fragrant flower garden aromatics through evergreen, sage, and crispy forest air aided by a pleasant whiff of sweet tobacco. Lightly spiced, exuding just a dash of cumin that muddles cohesively with saline sandy earth and fine-grained soil. Clean, classic, and quite restrained without ever losing focus on temptingly pristine fruit. Medium in body with medium tannin and medium plus acidity. This 2017 Chehalem Mountains Gamay Noir by Ayres Vineyard is a beautifully balanced and wonderfully delicious wine from the Willamette Valley's other red grape.
.
Pinot Noir may be the king of Willamette Valley reds, but it by no means is the only red wine grape that thrives in the vineyards of Northwestern Oregon. This bottling, crafted by Ayres Vineyard using Gamay sourced from within the Chehalem Mountains sub-appellation of the Willamette Valley, proves that this humble grape from Beaujolais has exciting potential in one of America's most famous cool climate regions. While not quite as lifted or ethereal as Pinot Noir can be this wine is bursting with oodles of unique character and personality. It is exceedingly juicy and delicious maintaining exceptional balance while expressing complex notes of forest and earth throughout. Ayers treats their Gamay nearly exactly like their Pinot Noir during vinification and up until bottling, and they have managed to create an extremely impressive offering here.

Who makes your favorite Gamay?

It’s Friday! The weekend is here!! 💃🏽 Just sipped on this beauty pool side and now time for a little bbq. 🤤 ⠀⠀
I know, I know, another Pinot Noir Rosé! What can I say, I’m having a moment. @sokolblosser is one of my fave Oregon wineries! I especially love their Pinot Noir so I was super stoked to find this rosé on my Costco run. 🍷🍷
⠀⠀
She did not disappoint!! Dry, vibrant, and super fresh. Notes of juicy white nectarines, summer melon 🍉, and a hint of that wet-stone-after-the-rain smell. Mouthwatering acidity, long lingering finish with tasty rhubarb on the palate. I’m into it!!
⠀⠀
This rosé would be perfect with some crispy goat cheese arancini, handmade pasta with pesto, halibut fish tacos, basically any salad, grilled shrimp on the barbie and so much more!! ⠀⠀
Huge fan. What are you sipping on this weekend friends!?

There’s a new wine to try in our tasting room this week, and it’s Delicious!
Petit Verdot is generally a blending grape. We blend 2-7% into our Bordeaux-style blends. Any more than that and it takes over.
It, like Petite Sirah, is inky in color, full-bodied and high tannins… and very smooth

When planning a trip to #oregonwinecountry, always consider this gem for lodging. It truly is the best B&B experience I’ve ever had. The proprietors are top notch and you will feel pampered and relaxed while you are there. 5 star lodging all the way. 👌🏻

Last week we had a lovely visit and tasting and snack at @elkcove Vineyards.⁣

One of the things I found amazing about Oregon Wine Country is that almost everyone offers you the option of a cheese plate.  It was so nice to see local government not freaking out about the simple addition of cheese with wine like in Woodinville and Napa. ⁣

Elk Cove Vineyards is off the beaten path but so worth the visit. The vineyards spread out on both sides of the winery and views are spectacular. ⁣

More on this winery and the wines in an upcoming blog post (I’m a bit behind in my blogging). ⁣

The Rosé of Pinot Noir was light, and crisp perfect to enjoy with the cheese and charcuterie plate (and candied hazelnuts, YUM) or on a sunny summer patio! ⁣

Pesto's great and all, but sometimes you need to take your finger off the puree button. Put your basil bounty to use in ravioli that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Check out the link in the @foodandwine bio for the recipe. 📷: @gregdupree
