| CV Andrew Rich Pinot Noir “Verbatim” Willamette Valley (formerly Cuvee B) 12 Pack|
Andrew Rich pioneered the development of Rhone varietal based wines in Oregon. Today, he makes small amounts of Rhone varietal based wines with such a following, the wines are largely sold from the winery before release.Back when Syrah was no more than an occasional novelty on a winery's list of offerings, Andrew was asking the owners of Ciel du Cheval Vineyard to plant Malbec, Roussanne, Syrah, Mourvedre, and additional Rhone grapes for him. That effort, which started in the mid-1990's, has blossomed into a lineup of Andrew Rich wines that incorporate the now mature grapes he pushed for ten to fifteen years ago. While Andrew makes popular and well reviewed Pinot noir and Sauvignon Blanc as well, it’s the possibility of making truly great Rhône-style wines in the Northwest that excites him most.
