Storyteller tasting – Friday, May 27

Come taste Vincent Pinot Noir as well as wine from Movia. Don’t know Movia? Read more here.

I’ll be pouring two barrel samples from 2010. My Armstrong Vineyard Pinot Noir from Ribbon Ridge and my Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir from the Eola-Amity Hills.

I’ll also be pouring and selling my 2009 Vincent Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills, which just got a write up in the Oregonian.

2009 Vincent Wine Company Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir ($25): Is a $25 wine a steal? Well, finding a high-quality pinot noir that’s crafted with the care and dedication behind this bottle from Vincent Wine Company is. The first vintage release from Vincent Fritzsche … this pinot is lean and agile on the palate, with summery notes of ripe Rainier cherries and savory herbs plucked fresh from the garden. With fewer than 200 cases produced, this bottle won’t be around forever, but for now you can find it around town at most New Seasons Markets.  —Tracy Howard
