The Thomas mailer should be coming out soon, does anyone have any insight on the 2015 vintage?

There is a 2015 thread elsewhere with other perspectives you should read.

It's another warm vintage. Based on what little I've tasted of 2015 OR Pinots and whites, I'm more bullish on '15 than '14, a vintage I think is better than what others who steer clear of anything but cool vintages believe. Will have no hesitation in buying what I always do - the Joe 5 pack.

I tasted the 15 from barrel and liked it. Still had a bit of spritz from malolactic but it was fresh and clean. I think 15s are quite a bit fresher than 14s across the board and wouldn't expect Thomas to be different (I might have barrel tasted the 14 as well, I can't recall).

I find it doesn't matter with Thomas. Buy every vintage imo.....

Cheers,

+1 It's an easy year-in, year-out buy. The only other Oregon wine I like this much is the PG Etzel Block...
