2016 Fairsing Vineyard Pinot Noir - 93 points from Vinous

Josh Raynolds gave our 2016 Fairsing Vineyard Pinot Noir a fantastic review of 93 points:

"Lurid ruby-red. Ripe red and dark berry, baking spice and vanilla aromas, along with a smoky mineral nuance on the powerfully scented nose. Concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and spicecake flavors show excellent clarity and become sweeter on the back half. Hangs on with strong tenacity on the dark-berry-driven finish, which is framed by fine-grained, slow-building tannins." - Josh Raynolds, June 2019

2017 Pinot Gris Wins Double Gold

Double Gold for Pinot Gris

Out of all Pinot Gris entries, our 2017 Pinot Gris took the top spot in Sip Northwest's Annual Awards Issue: Best of the Northwest. Sip Northwest gathered regional wine professionals for a blind tasting and here's their review:

"Here's an effortlessly versatile and perfectly food-friendly white wine. This Gris lifts with aromas of lemon verbena, green apple and honeysuckle. A delicious core of melon, peaches and a hint of lemon peel round out the palate. Art fans take note: The label artwork is by Willamette Valley-based Jane Aukshunas, known for her oil pastel pieces."
