91 • Duck Pond 2008 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley $20.
Deep ruby color. Interesting aromas of buttery caramel corn and lingonberry tart follow on a soft, silky entry to a fruity medium body with creamy pudding and cranberry notes. Finishes with tangy, juicy, tart berry and cocoa powder fade. An appetizing pinot. (tasted on Apr-29-2010)
88 • Duck Pond 2007 "Red Blend", Wahluke Slope, Columbia Valley $15. Best Buy.
Nearly opaque violet color. Ripe aromas of cassis pie and praline follow through on a round entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with slate and mint cream notes. Finishes with a chewy, dusty oak tannin fade. A nice sipper or table wine to serve with gourmet Kobe burgers. (tasted on Feb-10-2010)
85 • Duck Pond 2008 Chardonnay, Wahluke Slope, Columbia Valley $12.
Bright, creamy piña colada aromas follow through on a soft entry to a dryish medium body with good depth and a spicy, lively, warming finish. A fun sipper or pair with crab. (tasted on Mar-04-2010)
