A Smackdown Among (Not Quite) Friends: Oregon Pinot Noir and California’s New Style

Date: Thursday, May 28
Time: 6 pm to 7:30
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $30 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase
Format: Seminar, RSVP required

For many years, the mantra of Oregon Pinot Noir vintners has been “We’re not California – we make a more Burgundian style of Pinot Noir (wink-wink).”

Yet that does not concur with my most recent tasting experiences.

To put it flatly, Oregon seems lost in its own rhetoric, producing wines of the same caliber they always have.  One might say, resting on their laurels.  While California is absolutely exploding with new talent, in cooler and harsher climates, making Pinot just as elegant and sophisticated as Oregon’s—if not better.

This tasting aims to chart a course through some of the newest, and most exciting, Pinot Noirs from California and Oregon available in Wisconsin.  The goal is to explore style and climate, searching for differences in complexity and age-worthiness.

Wines to be tasted:
2012 Evesham Wood Willamette Valley Pinot Noir $22.99
2013 Helioterra Willamette Valley Pinot Noir $34.99
2010 Adelsheim Willamette Valley Pinot Noir $28.99
