We’ve enjoyed wines from Big Table Farm over the past few years, and were very excited to receive samples of their 2018 Spring releases. The quality of their wines across the board is really impressive now, and their bottles are still among the most beautiful in the business. It’s a pleasure to taste and talk about these. In this show we taste the 2017 Laughing Pig Rose, and the 2016 Willamette Valley Chardonnay, the 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, and the 2016 Pelos Sandberg Vineyard Pinot Noir.

Big Table Farm is run by Brian and Clare, who moved up here chasing a wine dream. Today, they’re living that dream, and making some of Oregon’s best wines on their farm in the Northern Willamette Valley. When they recently released some wines to their mailing list, Dan picked up the 2014 Wirtz Pinot Noir, and the 2015 Pelos Sandberg Pinot Noir.

This week we’ve got a trio of wines in mid-range prices that all come from producers we check in on regularly. We have the 2014 Big Table Farm Pelos Sandberg Pinot Noir, the 2014 Grochau Cellars Lia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, and the 2014 Omero Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Do you think that mirrored SLR’s are dead?

At recent tastings, Dan discovered a couple of 2011’s that deserve some attention. The Pinot Noir from 2011 is now hitting the market in full force, and we look forward to talking about more wines like these in the future. We taste the 2011 Walter Scott Clos Des Oiseaux Pinot Noir, and the 2011 Big Table Farm Pelos Sandberg Pinot Noir.
