    Winemaker Notes

    Lovely classic perfumed nose of potpourri, white roses and lychee syrup. Very pretty nose of white flower, melon, snap peas, pear and white peach and aromas of citrus flowers in full bloom. Ginger spice as well as cumin and masala. The texture is generous and mouth coating with rich, ripe fruits and a finish of fresh ginger and indian spices. Full and fat ripe melon, white peach and pear, finishing with gorgeous floral notes and a bright verve of snappy acidity.

    What a wonderful wine both as an aperitif or to finish with fruit and cheese. Serve this with a salad of fava beans and bacon topped with chunks of parmesan cheese. A wonderful pairing to a number of spicy indian dishes as well.

    Brooks, Oregon
    Founded in 1998, Brooks is a reflection of the visionary Portland native, Jimi Brooks. His reverence for the land and vines made him a practitioner of organic and biodynamic farming. The great respect for vineyard individuality and mastery of blending, allowed his wines to achieve the greatest depth, flavors and balance.

    Home to some of America’s most celebrated Pinot Noir, Oregon maintains a tight focus on small production, high quality wine even while the state’s industry enjoys steady growth. As a world-renowned wine region, Oregon has more than 700 wineries and is home to well over 70 grape varieties. With a mostly Mediterranean climate, its cooler and wetter regions lie in the west, close to the Pacific Coast.

    By far the most reputed Oregon wine region is the Willamette Valley, which is further subdivided into six smaller appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill-Carlton.

    The Oregon wine region's most obvious success story is with Pinot Noir, which here takes on a personality that could be described in general terms as somewhere in between the wines of California and Burgundy—and is often more affordable than either one. The best Willamette Pinot noir has a rare combination of red and black fruit, elegant balance, high acidity and rustic earth. While completely enjoyable in their youth, some of the better, single vineyard or appellation-specific Pinot noirs can often benefit from some cellar time.

    Other AVAs in Oregon’s west worth noting include Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley.

    In the east are Snake River Valley, which overlaps into Idaho, and Columbia Valley, which Oregon shares with Washington. Summers are hot and dry in these regions but winters are cold and rainy.

    Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot blanc also grow successfully in Oregon.

    Gewürztraminer, an expressive and aromatically distinctive white grape variety, is considered a noble variety in the Alsace region of France, and produces wonderful wines in the mountainous Alto Adige region of NE Italy. Generally this grape grows well in cooler regions and its natural intensity makes it a great ally for flavorful cuisine such as Indian, Middle Eastern or Moroccan. Somm Secret—Because of a charming perfume and tendency towards slight sweetness, Gewürztraminer makes for an excellent gateway wine for those who love sweet wines but want to venture into the realm of drier whites.
