In anticipation of the upcoming 2012 Wine Bloggers' Conference later this week the editors at Palate Press: The online wine magazine have gathered several different perspectives on wine bloggers.
A look at how Oregon Pinot Noir isn't just for red wine anymore.
Retail distribution is spotty, and their wines are best obtained through the website or by joining their wine club. Highly Recommended. GT
Plush and smooth on the finish which lingers for a while. An excellent pairing with braised duck or a pizza with a tomato-fennel sauce. Highly recommended. RR
Clear, medium-deep intensity lemon yellow. Clean on the nose with heady aromas of sweet cooked apples, macerated pineapple, vanilla, clove, and candied ginger. Medium-dry on the palate with full body and slight residual sugar. Medium alcohol, medium acidity, rich texture, with lush—almost over the top—flavors. Stewed yellow apples, spiced Turkish figs, pineapple packed in brown sugar, candied orange peel, and crystallized honeysuckle. Medium finish. Very easy to drink on its own, but would pair splendidly with apple walnut bread pudding. Highly recommended. RR
