Wine should not be regarded simply as a beverage, but as an art of living, a pleasure.” – Henri Jayer

Welcome to The Hedonistic Taster, a binNotes | redThread™ trade sampling of artisan wines.

Today’s Tasting:

Troon Vineyard | Blue Label Longue Carabine 2014

Named for the weapon of choice used by Oregon’s early pioneers, Troon Vineyard’s white blend Longue Carabine resembles Annie Oakley in corset and ruffles  – an alluring straight shooter that takes no prisoners but earns plenty of admirers with her girlish guile.
