Dan tasted one Riesling over Thanksgiving weekend that he wanted to share, and Chas picked up two more bottles from 2011 to make the show. We hope to be doing more of these in 2013. We’ve got two bottles from Oregon and one from Washington this week with the 2011 Eroica from Chateau Ste. Michelle and Dr. Loosen, the 2011 Love and Squalor Willamette Valley Riesling, and the 2011 Trisaetum Estates Reserve Riesling.
What summer activity are you looking forward to most?

We received samples from the generous folks at Long Shadows and Southard Wineries, and Chas picked up two more Washington Rieslings to include in the show. As we taste more Riesling from the Pacific NorthWest, we’re starting to get a feel for what Oregon has to offer, but we’ve still got a lot to learn about the strengths of Washington Riesling. We were pleased to see a good showing from all 4 bottles, which certainly exceeded our expectations. Well done Washington! We tasted the 2008 Efeste Evergreen Vineyard Riesling, the 2009 Poet’s Leap from Longshadow, the 2008 Columbia Valley Riesling from Southard, and the 2008 Gilbert Cellars Columbia Valley Riesling.

The search continues as we return to Oregon to try some more Riesling! Today we tried the 2008 Anam Cara Nicholas Estate Riesling, the 2008 David Hill Estate Riesling, and the Evergreen Vineyards 2008 Oregon Riesling.
