I am very pleased to announce the pre-release offering of the new Love & Squalor wines. You can order them via eMail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be pouring these beauties this coming Memorial Day weekend at Brooks Winery in Amity (just south of McMinnville). Please come and say hello between sips.
The 2009 Eola Hills Riesling is drinking great, even in its youth. It is a bit drier than previous vintages but still shows forward apple and citrus fruits, a tropicality in the mid-palate and a long wet finish. $18/bottle.
2008 was a banner year for Oregon Pinot, and the Love & Squalor 2008 Pinot noir bottling is surely taking part in that parade. Floral and forest notes lead into a dark and rich beginning. The middle spreads wide across the tongue, coating with cherry, black tea and finishes with bright complexity. This is my finest effort yet and I hope you will agree. $24/bottle.
As always, I will extend a 10% discount on orders of 6 or more bottles. I also have a bargain four-pack – 2 Riesling + 2 Pinot for only $80 + shipping. Or try the six-pack deal – 3 Riesling + 3 Pinot for only $110 + shipping. Please see last year’s order form on this blog for more clarification. 2009/2010 L&S Order Form
Thank you for your continued enjoyment of Love & Squalor. May we have the opportunity to toast together soon.
