Sokol Blosser Winery has the most amazing new tasting room (as I’m sure you’ve heard). They have big open rooms where wine club members can get away from the crowds, lots of windows to let in the sun (when it’s sunny in Oregon) and a great kitchen where they’re set up for wine and cheese tastings! Oh, and great wine, too. Their rosé is possibly one of the best I’ve had, with an incredible finish and such balance! It just melts away on your tongue and all the while you’re just like “wait don’t go!”
Here are some shots of their amazing new space. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s a great excuse to try some wine.
Now on to the wine! The whites beat the reds and the pink takes the cake! The flight consisted of a 2012 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris (a little sweet but light), an amazing 2012 Estate Rosé of Pinot noir (you get something that isn’t sweet at all but is completely non-invasive on your palate. Almost like pomelo), a 2011 Dundee Hills Pinot noir (tight but nice cranberry potential, I’d keep it in mind for Thanksgiving), a 2010 Dundee Hills Pinot noir (nice spice and some tobacco that lingers at the back of your throat after the wine is gone. It’s a good-interesting sensation) and a 2010 Estate Cuvée Pinot noir (complex! Lots of flavors in there, I couldn’t really get a handle on it but you should try).
Go visit the tasting room and my new favorite Rosé between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at 5000 NE Sokol Blosser Lane, Dayton, OR.
