I Love These Wines: Division's Villages

Hello from Marcus,

It was 10:30 last night, the time I usually unplug. But I found myself continually taking a break from writing and the background entertainment of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gabriel Byrne dueling in "End of Days," to pour sips from a small cadre of wines on my dining room table, then write more.

Because I love the these wines. They are a pure pleasure to drink, honest and straight forward in the best ways. Over two nights, I paired each with a bunch of dinner items and they rocked. I highly encourage you to experience their near-universal appeal.

Division Villages La Frontiere Sauvignon Blanc 2016

$19.75 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($21.95 regular)

The best Oregon Sauvignon blanc I've tasted. Why? Because it's the most balanced and refreshing while being perfectly true to Sauvignon blanc. I cut up a honey gold grapefruit last night to eat while I sipped this; the two make perfect sense together. Add hints of flint, peach and mango along with good local honey...but only in flavor, not in a sweet way. The acidity is mouthwatering, the finish dry, yet there's still a voluminous feel to it. You really need to try it. Only 150 cases made, from Redford-Wetle Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills.   

Division Villages Beton 2016

$20.65 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($22.95 regular)

Yuh-hum! It smells awesome -- sweet and juicy black raspberries and pie cherries plus licorice, cool granite, and black tea. This bistro-style red is delightfully fresh and wonderfully food-friendly; it paired supremely well with my dinner of cast iron roasted pork and potatoes. 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Gamay, and 10% Cot (Malbec) from the Applegate and Umpqua Valleys. 

 

Division Villages L'Isle Verte Chenin Blanc 2016

$19.75 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($21.95 regular)

Distinctly Chenin blanc with its beeswax, lime zest, and river stone appeal, this carries excellent weight matched by engaging brightness. From the 35 year-old vines in Yakima Valley's Willard Vineyard, what has turned out to be a rockstar Chenin vineyard.     

Division Villages L'Avoiron Gamay Noir Rose 2016

$16.15 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($17.95 regular)

Everything you want/expect in a rosé, this whisks you away on a spring breeze of pink wine refreshment. Vibrant and crisp, mouthwatering and juice-like, its peach, fresh raspberry and lime accents bring instant cheer. Sourced from high-elevation Gamay vines in Washington, picked early to retain freshness.
