We stick with Oregon for this episode, and we get into some 2009 Chardonnay from producers we respect, and from bottles we’ve had good experiences with in previous vintages. We taste the 2009 Domaine Drouhin Arthur Chardonnay, the 2009 Johan Vineyards Reserve Chardonnay, and the 2009 Evesham Wood Le Puits Sec Chardonnay.
What’s your take on white wine from 2009?

We stayed local this week, and tasted 3 higher end Chardonnay bottles from the area. We tried to keep things a little more concise as well. For the show, we reviewed the 2007 Cameron Abbey Ridge, the 2007 Domaine Drouhin Oregon Arthur, and the 2008 St. Innocent Freedom Hill.
What was the worst -non flawed- bottle you’ve ever tasted? By “flawed” we mean corked or other flavor failures not related to the original crafting of the wine.

We were having a good time drinking some good wine the other night, and decided to do a show to share our thoughts with you guys. Grant Shaffer joins us as our second guest! It could’ve been an OR (2003 Domaine Drouhin Oregon Louise, 1997 Ken Wright Guadalupe )vs. Burgundy (2002 Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune 1er Cru Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jesus , 1999 Philippe Roty Marsannay Quartiers ) showdown, but the wines are so different that a comparison like that would sell them all short. No, they’re not cheap, and they’re not terribly available, but they’re totally interesting, and we hope you enjoy the show.
Do you like the new Ken Wright bottle art, or the old bottle art best?

Today we taste through 3 recent releases of Oregon pinot from 2 classic producers, 2007 Domaine Drouhin Willamette Valley, 2007 Ken Wright Carter Vineyard, and a new player with some heavy credentials, 2007 Evening Land 7 Springs Pinot Noir. Trisha Bennett joins us as our first guest!
