Time was of the essence when we stopped by for wine tasting.  We had a jazz concert that our son was playing at to attend so we were unable to linger.

Among the offerings were:

  1. Talamonti 2011 Alternum from Abruzzo, Italy – Trebbiano
  2. Luna Beberide 2014 Godello from Castile and León, Spain – 100% Godello
  3. Grochau Cellars 2014 Commuter Cuvee from Willamette Valley, Oregon – Pinot Noir
  4. Chateau Teulon 2014 Costieres de Nimes from the southern Rhone Region of France – a red blend of Grenache and Syrah

#1 and #2 were whites from different grapes than we are used to seeing.  Both were a nice change of pace.  While Bushmaster expected I would prefer #4 to #3, I surprised him.  #3 was my clear favorite of the day.  There are some really nice wines that come out of the Pacific Northwest!
