Youngberg Hill supports Taste of the Nation!  It was great to see everyone at this wonderful event sampling amazing wines and food.

With your help, our net result was over $65,000 for Share Our Strength and our local beneficiaries (Oregon Food Bank, St. Vincent de Paul Food Recovery Program, Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, and Klamath/Lake County Food Bank).  In 2012, we’ll celebrate our 25th anniversary – hope to see you there!

Corks & Caftans 2008 Jordan Review

May 8th, 2011 by Nicolette Bailey

Corks & Caftans 2008 Jordan Review is a testament to the quality of standards that exist year after year on fruit coming from Youngberg Hill’s Jordan Block estate vineyard.

“Musty nose, hints of sweet watermelon, spruce and moss. Deep plum in color—divergently dark for an Oregon Pinot Noir, but not dense, retaining glimmers of transparency. Steady black fruit drives and traverses the nose and palate, underscored by dense earth and herbals.

Not a wine quick to award dividends. It flaunts a Bordeaux-like appetite for air and patience—a bit of a dangler at first, but 2 hours provides focus. Swells of black cherry, fennel, cola and cream soda become unmissable where vague threads of distinction appeared at first.”
