Whats interesting to note, is up until a few years ago, nobody was taking Oregon and Washington wines seriously. We didn’t notice the parallel of the region with France. People didn’t think the “terroir” could compete with the rest of the world. Now, people are being taken back by the fruit forward, but more complex wine that is coming out. Estates like Drouhin who come from generations of winemakers have made quite the statement and don’t have the rules of France holding them back, which I’ll leave for another day explaining that! So here’s a few photos of some genuinely good wines I had last night in my tasting group. I’ll return shortly to update the tasting notes as soon as I get the chance. Cheers!
