Join us Thursday, June 4th, at 6:30pm for a Zoom conference tasting of fabulous wines from our cellar. This week's tasting will feature three truly wonderful wines from the Oregon winery, Lingua Franca. We will be joined by my long-time friend, Larry Stone, who is the owner/winemaker and a Master Sommelier. He and I actually took the MS exam together (we think it was 1987 or 1988). Formerly the sommelier at Charlie Trotter's in Chicago and at Rubicon in San Francisco – and later the GM at Quintessa and Rubicon – Larry is one of the most gifted blind tasters in the world and his wines are absolutely stunning.

This week's tasting includes:
2018 Lingua Franca AVNI Chardonnay, $39.99
Very refined and gracefully complex with precise and vibrant Meyer lemon, river stone, white peach, and apricot flavors that glide on a long finish. Drinking perfectly now.

2017 Lingua Franca AVNI Pinot Noir, $34.99
This reflects the greater impact of Lingua Franca Estate fruit in the wine. The resulting aromas are beautiful expressions of rose petal, wet stone, black plum, red cherry, and savory elements. It has a remarkably delicate tannin structure but is also layered with seductive fruit. It is vibrant and fresh.

2016 Lingua Franca The Plow Pinot Noir, $59.99
The vineyard sites blend together to create a dense wine while the vine age contributes to a purity of expression and a depth of flavor that is saline, mineral, and bright. A very special wine Larry was kind enough to share with us.
