Happy Memorial Day!

May we not forget the great sacrifice those who gave their lives that we may be free.

Memorial Weekend in Oregon Pinot Noir Country

Youngberg Hill tasting room will be open Memorial Weekend along with everyone in Oregon Pinot Noir Country. It is a great weekend to get out to those places that are not always open. We will be releasing our 2009 Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, tasting some Library wines and possibly a barrel tasting.

We will have many fine cheeses paired with the various wines and a couple of surprises to boot. And of course, the best views in the Valley. If you haven’t come as far as McMinnville in the past, now is a great time. Five wineries will be open in the McMinnville AVA, along with several in the Amity-Eola Hills AVA and in McMinnville itself. So there are plenty of opportunities to taste, not to mention great restaurants in the area.

Cheer!

Oregon Wine Country on Horseback

Riding through the vineyards in Oregon Wine Country at Youngberg Hill. We told Natasha that when she was 10 she could get a horse if she worked and saved her money.  Well I would like you to meet Austin.  He is a 22 year old retired polo pony.  Natasha would like to thank all the guest who purchased her lavender bags that helped pay for Austin.  With the money from that and other jobs these past 7 years Natasha purchased the saddle and bridal too.

Now for the story;   We have had 3 expert horse people look at Austin and each told us that he was a great horse for the kids and gentle.   I know little about horses but I have ridden at least 40 times in my life and feel very comfortable around and on any horse.  So after we saddled up and all the kids took turns riding I decided that I would take a turn on Austin.  I got up just fine.  Austin took about 10 steps and went to make the turn to come back and that’s when it all went so terribly wrong. Austin planed his front feet wide and from the next 20 seconds(it felt like 4 minutes) he went crazy bucking and running wild.  After avoiding the wooden fence he twisted right and that is when I twisted left.  I knew I was falling and cold do nothing about it.  I don’t remember hitting the ground but all I knew is I couldn’t get up.  I now have a broken shoulder blade and every part of my body feels like I got ran over by a horse.    Needless to say I will not be doing any riding again for a long time but am so grateful it wasn’t much worse.

Oregon Pinot Gris & Pinot Blanc Released

Youngberg Hill is releasing the 2009 Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc this weekend.

2009 Aspen Pinot Gris

Our 2009 Aspen Pinot Gris is the first vintage with our own estate grow fruit coming from the Aspen Block. The 2009 vintage is loaded with fruit flavors and complexity that is not always the case with a Pinot Gris. The aromatics include peach, grapefruit, mineral, and a hint of vanilla. Flavors abound with lemon, grapefruit, and peach with a nice hint of earth. It is fun to drink because every time you take a sip, you discover a new dimension. With Residual Sugar of .3 and a little higher acidity, the 2009 is very crisp with a soft, clean finish.

The wine has excellent balance for drinking alone at cool temperatures and with cheeses or a light salad.

2009 Pinot Blanc

The 2009 Pinot Blanc is another expression of the lovely aspects that Pinot Blanc gives to any food. The aromatics remind you of banana and citrus. The fruit flavors of peach, banana, and lemon are bountiful. The 2009 has  richness and creaminess that makes the wine melt in your mouth, but lingers even with food. The 2009 is also on the dryer side at .3% Residual Sugar and higher acidity.

The 2009 vintage is a wonderful complement to food with a crab cake being my favorite. The rich, smooth, creamy, full flavors will keep you coming back for another sip.
