Last fall we traveled to the Pacific Northwest to see first-hand the great wines being produced. Many of the wineries sold their products only locally, but the wines of Owen Roe have been getting huge press and, so, are available back East. (Owen Roe O’Neill was a 17th Century Irish patriot from County Cavan, Ulster. Today, David O’Reilly serves as winemaker for these Washington and Oregon offerings.) While finishing breakfast at our B & B in Sunnyside, Washington, the proprietor asked us if we wanted to go to the winery. He made a call and we were there in less than a half hour. The winery is a former Carnation Dairy plant (you can still make out the name on the building). Although still a work in progress, with some staff members rotated from Portland, the team showed us a wide range of products: Owen Roe, O’Reilly and something I had not seen before: Corvidae. After tasting the Corvidae Rook – a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend - we called home to place an order. When only fifteen cases were available, we asked our broker to try to secure some more wines from this down-home winery. Today, we present Corvidae Lenore Syrah: ninety-five percent Syrah and five percent Grenache, sourced from Erickson Vineyard in Columbia Valley and Six Prong Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills. This is a ripe smooth wine with depth and balance. We loved the brightness of the fruit juxtaposed by rich tannins and clean acidity that we rarely see. This is a hand-made wine by a young staff at a cult winery in the making. Try this wine with duck, roast chicken or pork dishes.
Producer
Located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Panther Creek Cellars has been producing signature Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay wines since 1986.The winery has been recognized for its signature blends as well as single vineyard designate wines. “Panther Creek has a storied history and I’m eager to build on that legacy,” says Tony Rynders, Consulting Winemaker. “I have been making wine in Oregon for almost 20 years, and I look forward to beginning this chapter with one of Oregon’s most established Pinot Noir producers, founded by one of the wine industry’s great heroes, Ken Wright.” Our goal, in making Panther Creek wine, is simple: We hope that each wine will express the personality of its vintage and character of its vineyard. This expressiveness is the essence of great Oregon Pinot Noir. Our wines are crafted to complement a variety of foods, as well as be enjoyed on their own. We believe that great Pinot Noir can be enjoyed as a young, fresh wine that showcases ripe, sweet fruit, as well as an older, mature wine that features unparalleled complexity and beauty. Renowned author Robert Parker, Jr. described Panther Creek “as one of the most consistent, high quality Oregon wineries … producing some of Oregon’s most concentrated and age-worthy wines.”
