Favorites series: oregon

Hey fellow wino's. I've been working in RRV for about three years now and have come very close to a lot of the great wineries here. I feel that I've ignored educating myself some of the neighboring counties and states – mainly because there are so many great options here, even though I know each other area deserves as much attention.

So I'd like to start with Oregon! Who are some of your favorite producers/which ava, and what are your favorite wines from them?

I appreciate all and any input, and look forward to diving into your suggestions!

Inherited some fine wine from dear friend, no idea the value — any appraisers able to help? – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

Inherited some fine wine from dear friend, no idea the value — any appraisers able to help?

My professional mentor of more than decade is not doing so well with cancer and has graciously given me some wines from his collection. The gesture itself is worth more than any wine, and I would give it all back if it meant changing things. He's been like family to me. But I digress from my question.

Would anyone be able to help me find a reliable person or website who can appraise these wines/vintages (I have pics if needed)? I have no idea where even to begin looking:

– Jordan – Cabernet Sauvignon – Alexander Valley – Estate Bottled – 1983

– Chateau Lynch Bages – Grand Cru Classe – Pauillac – 1983

– Petrus – Pomerol – Grand Vin – Red Bordeaux – 1972

absolutely sweetest (affordable) wine for each type? also other questions – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

absolutely sweetest (affordable) wine for each type? also other questions

Hi everyone! I want to try the sweetest wines in each category! Googling it just showed me articles like "Best sweet wines you have to try! Oh btw these are actually not THAT sweet because anything sweeter would be gross."

  1. What is the absolutely sweetest wine under 100$ for both red and white? There is no upper limit for this, the sweeter the better. Looking for sweetness, not quality. Need to be under 100$ and not rare, though.
  2. When I researched about this, I noticed people saying that Tawny Port (red), Lambrusco (red), Tokaji 5 (white) and White Zinfandel (white) are very sweet. Any opinion about these? Interested in trying them anyway.
  3. Oh also I tried a local "Sweet Rosé" wine and it was actually not sweet at all and tasted like vegetables and I didn't like it. Very strange. Is Rosé supposed to taste like vegetables or was that just a bad one?

To clarify, I actually do enjoy the sour ish non-sweet wines, but I want to try the sweetest ones next because I have a special place in my heart for sugary abominations.

Wine advice for a cider fan? – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

Wine advice for a cider fan?

I have celiac, so if I am out with friends I typically drink cider or I get some sort of cocktail and sip it all night. But at work events, there's usually either beer or a few kinds of wine, and since beer isn't safe for celiacs, I am often stuck re what kind of wine to drink. I don't care for chardonnays at all, and sauv blancs can sometimes be too dry….but how do I figure out what kind of red isn't gonna hit me over the head with tannins? I know it's weird given that I love gin & tonics, but I like that kind of bitter and not the heavy tannin bitter I get from most red wines. Left to myself I'd drink riesling but they don't tend to have that at academic conference dinners. Can I have some tips re how to pick something that's on the sweeter side or at least not quite so dry?

Thanks!
