This Oregon take on a French Muscadet is sharply herbal, with a mix of cucumber, tomatillo and gooseberry flavors. It was aged in a mix of acacia, stainless steel, neutral oak and cement; this last vessel seems to dominate the texture, although the overall effect is to flatten out the flavors and dull the finish.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
