Many of Oregon’s best winemakers scrambling to acquire Shea grapes. This small-scale producer does a fine job. Its Shea designate is a captivating wine loaded with blueberry, blue plum, black raspberry and a touch of violets. One-third new French oak brings a vein of chocolate. The balance is impeccable. Drink this with enjoyment immediately, or cellar it through 2025. Cellar Selection. —P.G

"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!'"
- Robin Williams (1951-2014)
I keep thinking that it's just a bad dream: we really haven't lost Robin Williams. Fortunately, as is the way of life, we also have good dreams, like the weather we've been having this winter and spring. We could be experiencing our 20th straight day of rain here in the Pacific Northwest, but instead, we are bathed in beautiful sunshine and there's early bud break in the vineyard. Indeed, everything is making its appearance early this year. Daffodils and tulips have bloomed and faded already. So let the celebration begin. As a starter, we have two good ways to party together this spring. I hope to see you soon.

Please join us for the 6th annual Yamhill-Carlton AVA Spring Tasting atAnne Amie Vineyards on April 25th.
You will be able to taste and talk with our winery members about what's happening in this special growing region. Over 25 wineries will be on hand to answer questions about their vineyards and wine making plans.
Tickets are on sale now. If you love this event as much as we do, don't wait to purchase as we are limiting tickets again this year.
You will have direct access to our winemakers at the event. What should wine lovers expect from Yamhill-Carlton 2014? Although most of the Pinots will not be released until 2016, they are as anxious to get into your glass as you should be to taste them. Everyone I spoke with agrees the wines will be approachable early, with plenty of dark fruit up front, along with well-balanced acidity and tannins.
