july 23, 2010: we bought this ribbon springs vineyard adelsheim at winetree for about $22. victoria had been looking for an adelsheim pinot noir for a year, but we had pretty much given up the search after fruitless visits to big red liquors and other wine stores. this auxerrois, similar to a chardonnay, reminded us instead of a watered-down sauvignon blanc. it really is lightly flavored, almost forgettable. the nose is the most memorable thing about this oregon, ribbon ridge, speciman. 13.5 percent alcohol.
