Re: Post-IPNC Oregon Pinot Noir Blind Tasting, 2008 Vintage, 7/27/15

Christopher- Great thread! I’d be interested in joining. I’m down to 19 bottles of 2008 Oregon Pinots but would be happy to pony them up for an East Coast tasting. (If we’re doing pairs ala Post-IPNC I’ve only got 4 pairs left.) Rich - 85? That is some Serious delayed gratification going on there! C.-

Re: 2013 Oregon Chardonnay Tasting

Oregon is so totally the place! I do love Pinot but I’m an unrepentant Chard drinker. The IPNC Throwdowns that I’ve been to are great... How did it not occur to me that Heater Allen was THE place to go for a Chard Throwdown? Live and learn. Oregon chards just max the spectrum... but I’m not surprise...
