2012 Merrill Cellars Viognier

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This Viognier from Merrill Cellars is a light straw color wine with a nose of fresh pears, citrus, and cardamom. The mouth feel of wine is medium with a sweet fruit leading to a tart acidic middle. The finish is soft and subtle but lasting.  Let this wine warm up from being chilled for best results.  This is one to add to your table.

2009 Caprice Cabernet Sauvignon

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This Cabernet from Caprice is dark red with a wonderful nose of dark smoky black fruit, vanilla and smoked meat.  The palate shows a full bodied wine with a big fruit leading to an acidic and still quite tannic finish.  This will improve with some bottle aging over the next couple of years.

2011 Elk Cove Vineyards La Sirene Pinot Noir

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

The Elk Cove Vineyards is just a short distance from Beaverton and is worth a visit if you are up that way.  This Pinot might best be described as a cuvée.  The color is a light ruby and is translucent with a nose of soft raspberry, citrus, and a slight mint.  The palate shows a medium bodied Pinot with a delicious fruit leading to an acidic and tannic finish.  A really wonderful Oregon Pinot that should go for about 5 years in your cellar.

2010 Matello Pinot Noir Whistling Ridge Vineyard

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This Pinot comes from Whistling Ridge Vineyard in the Ribbon Ridge region of the Willamette.  It's produced and bottled by Matello in McMinnville, Oregon. This wine is very light colored cranberry slightly red tinged with a nose of raspberry, strawberry, and black olive.  Don't let the light color fool you the wine has loads of flavor.  It starts out with a light to medium body then a sweetish tart fruit.  The middle is acidic and flavorful with a tannic finish that is numbing and long lasting.

2010 LaBrassuer Merlot

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This is a dark red merlot from this winemaker from the Rogue Valley with a nose of black berry, vanilla, charcoal, and a kiss of mint.   The mouth feel is full with a nice fruit, tart middle and tannic finish.  The La Brassuer is a more complex Merlot than a lot out there with a good fruit and finish. Enjoy it now and over the next couple of years.

2009 Pheasant Court Syrah Rogue Valley

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This wine made by a Willamette Valley producer with Southern Oregon grapes from the Carpenter Hill Vineyard in the Bear Creek area of the Rogue Valley appellation .  The color is a dark red with a nose of black fruit, oak, cherry, olives and pepper spices.  The palate shows a full body that is fruit forward with different layers of flavor and acid.  The finish is long and tannic.  This offering is a very well balanced big wine that should go with rich food.  Relatively inexpensive you should give it a try through 2015.

2009 Pebblestone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

Dick and Pat at Pebblestone don't release a Cabernet every year.  Just the real good vintages like this one.  This dark red wine has a nose of dark fruit, pencil box, with hints of coffee, smoke and caramel.  The palate shows a full bodied wine with a great fruit.  The wine has discrete layers of flavors, acids and a tannic finish.  This cab was a joy to drink enjoy it over the next 5 to 7 years.
