last night had dinner at a little inn up in eugene oregon and drank some fun wines…

we had the 07 pinot blanc from apollini williamette valley a playful beginning of grapefruit and saddle soap – a glycerin feel almost like a riesling, interesting …

then the silvan ridge pinot noir 07 williamette valley a briary raspberry nose and a full on plate of sweet and sour pork on the palate and later the end of a manhattan on the rocks…

we had abacela 2006 syrah from southern oregon which was delicious and full of deep blackberry pie

dessert was a honeysoaked fig tart that really was divine and so worth it. on the side: two clear creeks side by side the apple and the pear… so leathery saddles and applesauce, the other full of clarity and perfectly dried pears…

and the “star of the night” was the house noccio (?) a black walnut liqueur all hobnail boots at a barn dance on a cold november night full of sulky ponies and pumpkin spice cake omg i loved that stuff…

xo,

ruby
