Big Table Farm Chardonnay 2014

Barrel fermented in mixed age French oak producing a medium clear lemon color. This wine has a luminescent, straw color with a subtle sheen. Meyer lemon, white nectarine, baking spice, and salt water taffy on the nose. The palette offers up warm oak spice, sandalwood, and stone fruit.

With a lemon-butter-cream texture, this wine is lush yet still very bright and fresh. Lively acidity, with a custard type of roundness/richness, and the warm oak spice follows through on the pallet. Delicious balance between richness and freshness.

As with all our whites, this wine will reward you for cellaring.


Reviews:

Bright straw. Fresh citrus and orchard fruits, smoky minerals and ginger on the incisive nose. Silky and focused on the palate, offering nervy Meyer lemon and green apple flavors that give way to deeper melon and peach with air. Finishes silky and long, displaying an echo of bitter citrus pith and lingering spiciness. - Vinous 90 Points

Bright, taut and focused, with spicy pear and Meyer lemon flavors that dance into a long and lively finish. Drink now through 2020. 680 cases made. - Wine Spectator 90 Points

Big Table Farm Sunnyside Pinot Noir 2015

Lucy and Tom have been tending the same vines for over thirty years with care and diligence. The evidence of their work and care is clear – not only in the appearance of the vineyard but the quality of fruit they produce and subsequently the wines.

tasting notes— This wine offers a full rich nose, cinnamon, cedar and musk. Great density on the palate, rich but with a focused palate as the acid holds it all in the middle so perfectly.  Flavors are explosive, fresh, and everything perfectly in place.  The structure here is based more on its acidity than tannins, though the tannins are there they and just melt on your tongue.  This wine has great length to accompany its generosity.

Vivid red. A highly perfumed, complex bouquet evokes ripe red berries, blood orange, star anise and vanilla, and smoky mineral and candied rose nuances build as the wine opens up. Silky, focused and gently sweet, offering concentrated raspberry, cola, floral pastille and spicecake flavors, underscored by a vein of juicy acidity that gives the wine a surprisingly delicate touch. Shows excellent clarity and youthful tension on the strikingly long finish, which is shaped by fine-grained, even tannins.

Big Table Farm Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

The use of whole cluster fermentation is the back bone of this wine. Lots of leather and oak spice on the nose. Black cherry, dried cranberry, and pomegranate, as well as cardamom and anise. Palm sugar, hay, clove and sandalwood on the palate. Very fresh and bright, approachable wine.

#74 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018

A luminous wine in a generous vintage, this draws from all eight vineyards Brian Marcy uses in his production. It shows a woodsy, tea-like spice, but in the end, it’s the fruit that may seduce you—it’s like biting into a fresh wild strawberry, experiencing the burst of fruit, that lift and tingle of acid, the clarity and balance between the two. This is a wine of energy, finesse and delicious length. -  Wine & Spirits 94 Points


Effortlessly elegant and complex, with vibrant rose petal, savory smoke and raspberry accents that glide along a silky texture toward the long finish. Drink now through 2024. Wine Spectator 93 Points


Some strongly sappy aromas with wild herbs and red fruit, intermingled in upbeat, youthful and floral style. The same feel on the palate, which offers fresh, red-cherry flavors and a wealth of complexity and a juicy, fresh resolve. Try from 2020. James Suckling 93 Points


Though this multi-vineyard is blend priced below the winery's vineyard designates, it was given the same exacting care. A substantial wine, it's lush with blackberry, black cherry, lemon peel and orange blossom scents and flavors. Barrel aging has added clove and other spice notes. A stylish effort that outperforms its price. -Wine Enthusiast 92 Points

Long Shadows Pirouette 2016 (Magnum)

Long Shadows Pirouette Meritage is made from 68% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot 8% Petit Verdot 6% Cabernet Franc 3% Malbec

Philippe Melka, named one of the top nine winemakers in the world by Robert Parker, used small lots from Washington State's finest vineyards to craft this enticing red blend.

Like the last several growing seasons, 2016 was another hot year that required extra care in the vineyards. Building on the success of our canopy managment program over the last few vintages, we worked with growers throughout the season to encourage growth of the canes and outside foliage to protect against the sun while opening up the fruit zone for even maturation. Warm temperatures in the fall hastened ripening, but the Columbia Valley's cool autumn nights protected the grapes' acidity, yielding bright, vibrant wines that will drink well in their youth but also promise to bring enjoyement to those who cellar. 

A variety of fermentation methods were used to enhance complexity and richness in this classic Bordeaux blend. Hand-harvested Cabernet was fermented in 400L French oak barrels that were gently rolled throughout fermentation to integrate the oak with refined, dark fruit flavors and give the wine its silky mouthfeel. All other varieties were fermented in traditional stainless steel tanks, with select lots enjoying longer skin contact to enhance the wine's dark color and mid-palate. The finished wine was aged 22 months in French oak barrels (75% new) before bottling unfiltered and unfined.

Review:

"The 2016 Pirouette is made by Philippe Melka and it's a total blockbuster based on 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and the palate Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec that was fermented in barrel and aged 22 months in 75% new oak. Crème de cassis, blackberries, toasted spices, cedar, and forest floor notes all emerge from this deep, rich, opulent red that has sweet tannins, a thrilling texture, no hard edges, and a monster finish. This is another best-to-date from this estate and it's an awesome wine."  -Jeb Dunnuck 97 Points
