98-point Oregon Chardonnay!

There's a new Oregon Chardonnay enthusiast, and a new round of eye-popping scores for Oregon wines, well-deserved if you ask us. They were published over the weekend by The Prince of Pinot in his newsletter PinotFile. We've followed and respected The Prince's newsletter for many years.

When we read his most recent installment, we thought our eyes were faltering. 98 points for an Oregon Chardonnay! We've never seen a score for an Oregon Chard that high from any published reviewer; he tasted it twice with consistent impressions.

Gran Moraine Chardonnay Yamhill-Carlton 2014
$34.15 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($37.95 regular)
98 points PinotFile: "The aromas of Meyer lemon, honey, pear, white peach and buttery brioche soar from the glass. Crisp and bright in the mouth, with effusive flavors of citrus, apple, apricot and spice with a flinty compliment. A stunning wine with inviting balance and a mouthwatering finish. Still enduring when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. I also tasted this wine at a restaurant in San Francisco with the same impression and found it to be a perfect food wine."
