Seattle (gauging interest): Aged Oregon Pinot Noir offline?

#1 Post by Brandon R » July 26th, 2018, 1:26 pm

Based on Ron's thread over in Wine Talk about OR Pinots and going 10+ years, I wanted to start a thread to see about interest in an offline here in Seattle for just that: aged Oregon Pinot. I think we can all agree that we'd be best to let Summer travel and heat go by, so I'm thinking early Autumn would be a good timeline.

Who's interested?

I'm interested, and have a number of WV Pinots older than 10 years. If anyone is interested in trying the wines, but doesn't have any in their cellar, please don't be shy about participating.

That's enough right there to justify an offline. I'll work on some dates. A decent-sized group of us (16 if I recall correctly) did a daytime WA State Grenache offline at Seattle Wine Storage, and it worked pretty well. The only tough part is that they close by 6:00 p.m. so we'd have to be out by then. Just one option...

Mark,

How has that burger been preserved? Do you maybe have some duck breast?

Mike,

Don't drive- Uber. You don't even have to bring wine. There is always too much.

Everyone,

I'd be happy to host, but Sept. 14-25 and Oct. 16-13 I'm out of town.

I'm definitely interested. I have a few different options from 2008 I could contribute, but don't have anything older than that.

P.S. I really enjoyed the Grenache tasting!

There's a slim chance I can make it, but would love to if I can. As with many others, weekends are best -- but don't plan around me, I'm a long shot in any case.

Have plenty of older Oregon pinot.

I've been thinking of making the date sooner rather than later, but not until I'm sure the smoke will be cleared away. What do folks think about either Sept. 8 or 22?

Opposite of Mark - can’t make 8th, but likely could do 22nd. 29th should work too (unless I can snag tix to Zwanze Day).

I'm pretty well booked up for the next few weeks, so nothing really works in September. I'd prefer to do this a little later in the year when it's a bit cooler and smoke clears. That said, I'd absolutely defer to the host on this one. If it's 9/8 or 9/22, no problem - there will certainly be plenty of offlines to come.

I think waiting for the smoke to clear (literally) and the temperature to cool down is fine. I could make 9/8 but will be out of town on 9/22. I am also around 9/28 through 10/14.

It's looking like early Sept. is too soon. I'd like to keep the option of being outdoors open, so narrowing it down to the last two weekends in September.
If there is enough interest, I could do two dates.

28th or 29th looking strong at this point.

Prefer Sat or Sun to Friday and probably a lot easier for any Portland folks making the trip.
But Friday could work too if that’s all people have.
