Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Winter's Hill

Bob Tovey writes that they recently had a tasting of Winter Hill wines at the Tumalo General Store near Bend, Oregon. The Pinot Gris was "very good, crisp-dry- hints of pineapple and smooth." According to Tovey, it was recognized as one of the four best Oregon Pinot Gris by Northwest Wine Magazine. The Pinot Noir was "a mixed bag." The regular '04 was "thin with not much fruit and the color was light." The Reserve '04 was " much better-more fruit-dark in color - with a nice aftertaste ($43). Overpriced compared to Panther Creek in Bob's opinion. The winery owner is a Reed graduate and the winemaker is a young woman from France. Thanks, Bob for your report.
