Member Review by cgplayer9:

A very flavorful wine with mix of plums, black cherry, aniseed, and subtle hints of meatiness; slightly peppery with a respectable aromatic finish.

A to Z Wineworks was started in 2002 by four friends, Oregon wine industry veterans, Deb Hatcher (Eyrie), Bill Hatcher (Domaine Drouhin Oregon), Sam Tannahill (Archery Summit) and Cheryl. Francis (Chehalem). The two couples worked in the Hatcher's kitchen to build the original blend honored by Food & Wine Magazine as the Best American Pinot Noir under $20. Recognition for their A to Z wines with dependable quality and great value continued and production grew. In 2006, the group welcomed another Oregon wine veteran, Michael Davies, as winemaker, and partnered with Gregg Popovich (Coach of the San Antonio Spurs) to buy REX HILL Vineyards and Winery (established in 1982). A to Z has worked with more than 100 vineyards across the state always offering assistance for sustainability certification that the group expects to be achieved within three years of partnering. Today, A to Z has two viticulturists on staff and uses biodynamic principles to farm all owned or long-leased vineyards. Diverse sourcing across the state mitigates regional weather difficulties and adds complexity and depth to the one wine of each variety that is blended in any vintage. Additionally, A to Z has more collective Oregon winemaking experience than any other winery, experience that can make a difference in difficult vintages. A to Z remains true to the dual mission of offer Aristocratic Wines at Democratic Prices blending one cuvee each vintage of Pinot Noir, Chardonny and Pinot Gris that deliver the Essence of Oregon. A commitment to excellence is matched by a belief in fair value and sustainability in business as well as farming and a drive to offer the highest quality for the best value. A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir has twice been named to Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines of the yar; A to Z Oregon Pinot Gris is a perennial Best Buy; and A to Z Oregon Chardonnay is America's Best Selling Oregon Chardonnay. A to Z is also a certified B Corporation. Read less

This funky red blend takes Oregon Meritage to a whole new level. Primarily a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot and Dolcetto - full-bodied and wickedly complex. It is initially reminiscent of a right-bank Bordeaux, hearty and smooth, and then it begins to unfold and change in your mouth, with a slightly peppery finish. The Night and Day is bright, chewy and clean: all in all, a fantastic wine!

On the light side, with modest pomegranate and herb aromas and flavors, playing against mildly crisp tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2013.

A hearty Oregon red that is 100% barrel-fermented for 18 months. This is an unusual blend of grape varieties from Bordeaux, Spain and the Rhône. Beautifully aromatic, with succulent flavors of plums, currants, boysenberries and cocoa. A powerful, fruit-forward wine, this is excellent when you're in the mood for something different.
