OREGON - VOL. III

Our Senior editor, Dr. Owen Bargreen, has been working hard over past six months tasting roughly 500 wines from Oregon. The region has been blessed with a wonderful run of compelling vintages. The 2014 vintage saw warm, near perfect conditions which was backed by another sensational vintage in 2015, which despite a few heat spikes during summer, the crop ended up in marvelous condition. The 2016 vintage shows great promise as well, with potentially even more tension in the wines from the slightly cooler growing season. This reports covers the latest releases primarily from 2014-2016, and highlights the exceptional wines from these vintages which earned 90 points or higher.

With a number of fantastic wines from these outstanding vintages, few stand out more than Big Table Farm, who has cemented their place at the high table. Big Table Farm's talented Brian Marcy has crafted an incredible portfolio, which includes an impresive range from the stunning 2017 'The Laughing Pig' Rosé to the gorgeous 2016 'Earth' Pinot Noir. Another stellar lineup comes from Mo Ayoub, who is crafting some absolutely scintillating Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at his vineyard and winery in the Dundee Hills. Do not miss out on the 2016 Ayoub Chardonnay or the 2016 Ayob 'Estate Vineyard' Pinot Noir, both possessing a sterling minerality and wonderful range.

A perennial standout is Domaine Serene, who consistantly earns its spot amongst the apex of Oregon wine. Do not miss out on the 2015 Domaine Serene 'Evenstad Reserve' Pinot Noir, which is absolutely one of the most impressive wines from group. Just as compelling is their 2014 Domaine Serene 'Recolte Grand Cru' Chardonnay which is simply captivating with its intensity and minerality.

Other wineries that performed remarkably were lineups from Evening Land Vineyards, Toil, Willakenzie Estate, Argyle, Stag Hollow, Alexana, St. Innocent, Tendril, Cristom, Trisaetum, Lingua Franca, Gran Moraine and Brittan Vineyards.

Some of the worlds finest wines come from Oregon and its diverse AVA's, you will find everything from fantastic value wines to wines that are amongst the highest quality in the world. This has never been more evident with nearly 300 wines which have scored 90 Points or more in our recent tasting.
