Rex Hill - I'm trying to remember which of their 2001 reds (it was a Pinot) I had - but it was really good. Their Pinots (Gris and Noir) have consistently finished high in taster's panels for the last 10 years. They're located in Newberg, so there is no excuse not to go and sample some. I've also found their product on the shelves of the local groceries, and even on the menu at Rose's in Sherwood.

Some of Columbia Crest's wines are good (they make a bunch of different ones). Some of these are also sold ONLY at the winery or select outlets - these tend to be a notch above the ordinary. If you go to the winery (about a 2-1/2 to 3 hour drive), make sure to let them know you're an Oregon resident, as sales tax is waived.
From their website, I see they're offering an ice wine this year. This is somewhat unusual, as it requires the grapes to remain on the vine past the first frost, and such conditions don't happen often. The stuff is spendy - about $25 for a 375 ml bottle. (Having never tried it, I can only wonder what it tastes like.)

Seth Ryan winery produces some interesting varieties (I like the Meritage). They're located on Red Mountain, near the Tri-Cities in Washington. Biggest draw for me is they're about 3 miles from the 1000 yard range there (and the owner is a member), and therefore can be visited after a day's shooting. The company's website appears to be down, but information is available at www.columbiavalleywine.com/sethryan.htm.

Best ones I've had in a while.

Panther Creek Pinot Noir (Shea Vineyard). Smoothest Pinot Noir I have ever had.

Silvan Ridge (also under Panther Creek) Early Muscat. Super-sweet, best dessert wine with some sweet fruit.

Amity Pinot Blanc. Very light and dry without bite.

Eroica Resiling. Just an all around good Reisling without being overly heavy or sweet like a Gewürztraminer

But all those are a bit on the expensive side (although well worth it). For the basics:

Rex Hill Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc

Chateau St. Michelle Resling.

willamette Valley

Had some sweet cheeks I think it was this past weekend. Pretty sure they're local and it was pretty tasty stuff.

My parents are founding members of Willamette Valley, discounts up to the nil. They know the owner since he first started out. Was there for him when he was having bad days. My mom was his doctor's PA so it's rather interesting.



My favorite from them is the Cherry Blossom and their version of Mondavi red wine.

It's hard to beat Mondavi and some Hungarian Bullsblood but Willamette will do.

Nice place to hang out in the weekend also wandering the vineyards.

DeLille Cellars' Grand Ciel Cabernet Sauvignon. Pairing it with a plain ol' lip on NY has been good. I also like the Canoe Ridge Cab. (of Cha.Ste.Mich.) when I run low on the DeLille.

I was just going to post Hip Chics.... Stop staking me. We are on their "wine club" I actually think I have to go over there this week to pick up two new bottles.

I'm a Merlot fan though.

For Pinot it is Chehalem Winery.

There are many others already listed...

Nice.... finally a topic I can say I know what the hell I'm talking about href=www.sokolblosser.com/
Evolution, 11th Edition
This is a fresh crisp white wine that goes with just about anything. This wine is for people who enjoy a refreshing drink without all the bold in your face taste of many wines. It's a treat on a hot day....

2005 White Riesling Dessert Wine
If you can get your hands on this stuff you will be very pleased, it's my wife's and my favorite dessert wine to sever at dinner parties. Serve it cold and enjoy the sweet taste it's like candy in a glass. In prior years the bottle was frosted, it shows off well. One of the best dessert wines you could get your hands on.

Meditrina, IV
The girls like this one his

Check out the wine from Cuneo Cellars you will not be disappointed. They claim to be an Oregon wine but I believe most of the grapes if not all come from the Washington. Bold tasty wines..... they go good with a large steak

I'll list a few soon..........
