Idaho wineries can open tomorrow, with several limitations. And restaurants can too. I believe that WA and OR now allow tastings by appointment (to limit numbers at one time) in may parts of each state.
Most of the wineries I've bought from are offering free shipping and sizable discounts. I recently saw the BV George de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet for less than $100. Expensive, but a bargain in today's wine world. We're currently stocked up and going into a remodel, so I can't buy for a while. Bummer, I've never seen as many bargains at all levels.
I drank a very enjoyable Pinot Noir made by Martin Ray tonight. It has a simple, elegant front label, part of which is written in cursive. I'm considering writing to the winery to remind them that the youngest people old enough to be legally drinking wine don't even know how to read cursive because it stopped being taught in schools years ago. Heck, the younger wine drinkers not yet old enough to be drinking it legally also don't know how to read cursive.
In our house, its Chardonnay. That is our daily evening aperitif, and it also goes well with much of the food we eat. And it's the one wine we can agree on. I would prefer something like Sauvignon blanc occasionally, and Mrs. T. would prefer Riesling, but we can compromise on Chardonnay and usually do.
In our house it's probably Syrah (or Syrah dominant wines) and Tempranillo (or blends dominated by Temp) and Mourvedre/Monastrell. Whites: Gewurtz, Rieseling and Vinho Verde. Chard is probably at the bottom of our list.
There used to be (and maybe still is) a publication of consumers' ratings of wine that is similar to the Zaggat's publication for restaurants. (Sorry I can't remember the name of the publication.) One of the criteria was how well an opened bottle of wine improved over the next four or five days. My point is that a lot of wine intended for daily drinking really does improve during that period of time. I regularly drink left over wine and I've never used any device intended to keep it as fresh as when it was opened.
My wife and I had the best bottle of Pinot Noir tonight that is priced within our budget for daily drinking wines. It met my criteria for a really enjoyable wine: super smooth but with plenty of character. Chad 2018 from (no surprise) Willamette Valley, Oregon.
