Our friend Matt, who has joined us on a number of episodes, recently had a housewarming party. Since previous parties have involved Champagne antics, we decided to step it up, and document it. We had a bottle of Champagne from Francis Cossy on hand. All three of us are quite fond of it, and we looked forward to drinking the rest of the bottle. Thanks to Joy and Matt for running the cameras, and thanks to Chas for being brave enough to record two takes! We’ll be back to our regular program next week! Viva el delfin rosado!

Dan picked out a couple of bottles of Pinot Noir based rose wine for this week’s show. Both had been good in the past, and both showed brilliantly when tasted this time. Both come from unique vineyards and represent some really original wine growing and wine making. Wines like this are a big reason that Oregon is such an exciting place to explore. They also show that Pinot Noir can deliver great things in unconventional wines as well as traditional ones. We taste the 2011 Teutonic Wine Company Brut Rose from the Wahlstrom Vineyard, and the 2011 Analemma Columbia Gorge Rose.
