Chas picked up a three pack of Ken Wright’s recent 2015 single vineyard Pinot Noirs. There’s definitely a big reputation behind these wines, and we like to try some every year to get a taste of what he chose to do with the vineyards he’s had for years. Chas picked out the Freedom Hill, the
After some time away, Dan picked a mix of wines for this show. The Tripod Project in Portland always makes fun wines with input from three great local wine makers. This week, we taste their Triple Fist Gamay Noir. Daniel Immich has been a favorite German producer since we met way back in Episode 175.

Evesham Wood has a great reputation for making great wine as well as being one of the Willamette Valley’s long standing values. It’s the producer that turned Chas on to Pinot Noir, and we like to check in on some of their wines every year. The 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from them just came
