The Great Pinot Noir Battle

B.C Wine 101: Winter 2018 Edition--Tightrope 2015 Pinot Noir Top 10 List

With so much delicious B.C. wine out there, and new wineries springing up almost every day, it’s hard to know where to start drinking… until now

By: Nikki Bayley
BC Living Magazine

Although famously tricky to grow, B.C.’s cool-climate take on Pinot Noir is a thing of elegant beauty. There’s even an annual celebration of the variety—and there’s a terrific piece about that and the grape here by Anthony Gismondi—and so the question is: which B.C. Pinot Noir should we be drinking?

The Northwest Top 50 wines

Out of the thousand he tasted in 2017, Andy Perdue picks the best of the bunch.

By: Andy Perdue
Special to the Seattle Times

EACH YEAR, I taste thousands of wines, either as samples that arrive in my office or at competitions in which I participate.

Beginning in January, I taste with this list in mind, seeking out the most interesting offerings from our corner of the wine world. Some of these I tasted early in the year, and they stuck with me as extraordinary, for their clarity, style and purity of fruit.

Andy Perdue tries something new: the Top 50 Northwest Wines under $30

Our wine expert's annual "best-of" list gets better, with a broader reach and smaller investment.

By: Andy Perdue
Special to the Seattle Times

TWO COMMON COMPLAINTS about my annual lists of Top 50 wines go like this:

1. These wines are too expensive.
2. My favorite wines are missing.

To No. 2, I say: It's time to explore the world of the Pacific Northwest wine beyond your comfort zone.
To No. 1: We offer a new feature: our Top 50 wines under $30.
