Want to guess how many Oregon and Washington wineries have their own week in which we're dedicated solely to their wines? That would be one: Hundred Suns.
Happy Hundred Suns week! Our enthusiasm for the truly outstanding wines and the wonderful people behind them makes it easy enough to announce the occasion. The added factor is their dynamically diverse spring release lineup: an incredible Willamette Valley Chard at a stellar price, a mind-bendingly unique and collectible home estate Pinot noir, a Walla Walla Cab/Syrah, Syrah, and Columbia Gorge Syrah. Each wine and color will appeal to slightly different audiences but for the record, we think they're darn near universally appealing. Stay tuned as we roll out the reds later this week...you will want them.
Speaking of universal appeal, there's a lot of wine-geek Chardonnay out there and while we love it, Old Eight Cut Chard transcends it, traveling to the parts of our brain that long to swim in the perfect pool of Chardonnay. Totally delicious and a spectacular price—let Hundred Suns week begin now!
$27.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($29.95 regular)
A tremendous value that has it all: great Chardonnay character, a rounded and mouth-filling texture, depth and intrigue, wonderful balance. This hits the nail on Grant's winemaking vision—to create a layered wine of great complexity that is, first and foremost, totally delicious!
And speaking of value, we know what makes up the backbone of the 2020 Old Eight Cut: Koosah Vineyard. It is no understatement to say that Koosah is one of the handful of most exciting Oregon Chardonnay vineyards planted in the last five years. To have all that energy channeled into a sub-$30 Chard is electrifying!
