the Prince

The 'prince of pinot' is Rusty Gaffney and he writes a very well regarded pinot only newsletter called the PinotFile and he has written some very nice reviews of our wines over the last year and he has just included us in his end of year "All American" list these are his top eleven wines (ten producers) coming out of Oregon in 2010!! Big Thanks again to Rusty!

Once again very grateful to be recognized for our work and most importantly we hope you are enjoying the wines!!! here's to more great wines in 2011...

Big Table Farm Resonance Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton District Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 94 cases, $45 Rich, deep, brooding dark red fruits with a savory underpinning of chanterelle mushrooms, loamy earth and cardamom spice. This wine has impressive intensity on the mid palate, a pillowy texture, and a finish like a three hour movie you don’t want to end. Still a little closed, seemingly possessing more hidden charm waiting to get out. Cellar this wine for at least two years for ultimate gratification. Love the low alcohol (13.1%). A very heavenly and sensual pleasure.

the other wineries in the top 10 line up!! congrats to everyone!!
