Zenith vertical tasting with Division’s Deux this Saturday at the SE Wine Collective

Zenith verticalA late breaking event is shaping up this Saturday afternoon at the SE Wine Collective in Portland – a special vertical tasting of wines from Vincent Wine Company and Division Winemaking Company.

The idea started with Tom Monroe of Division and the Collective telling me he planned to pour three years of this Division “Deux” Pinot Noir, 2010 – 2012, just for fun. This wine is excellent, usually mostly if not all old vine juice from the legendary Eola Springs Vineyard.

Tom wondered if I was interested in pouring something too, and I mentioned how I had five years of Zenith lined up in my cellar waiting for something like this, 2012 going back to my rare 2008 bottling produced in my garage and never commercially released.

We thought – let’s pour all these wines in the SE Wine Collective tasting bar, 4-6pm on Saturday, November 30. Cost is just $15 to them all eight bottles. It’s totally casual – just come on down and taste. No advance tix or reservations necessary.

For a few of these wines, we’ll have bottles from the library available for purchase. A  few others are too limited to sell, but we still want to taste them. Come join us. We might even pull a few barrel samples of the young ’13s if you’re interested.

The SE Wine Collective is located at 2425 SE 35th Place at Division in SE Portland. See you there.
