Zoom Event - Walter Scott Wines with Erica and Ken - Saturday May 30th, 5pm PT/8pm ET

Erica and Ken graciously accepted an invite to join us for a Zoom event on May 30th at 5PM PT/8pm ET to discuss their wine. I've lauded their wines to every ear I could find via every avenue I could. I have found their chardonnay to be some of the best made in the New World and can stand up to any white burgundy at the same price point (if not better). They along with other producers in the Willamette Valley have shown that the Chardonnay (and pinot noir) being produced in the Valley are as good as anywhere. Walter Scott currently produces five Chardonnays and eight Pinor Noirs from different vineyards in the Willamette Valley.

I first learned of their wines when Jason Bray gifted me a bottle of the 2012 Walter Scott Chardonnay (no longer producer, now it's just the La Combe Verte). I opened it with a few of my friends at dinner and was blown away by the complexity of the wine. I texted Jason exalting the splendor that he had gifted me and immediately purchased a mixed case of their 2016 Chardonnay release. I have then made it my mission to spread the cult of Walter Scott Wines through the internet. So I was excited when they accepted my invite to participate in a zoom event

A little about the winery.
The name Walter Scott honors two men who meant the world to Ken. Walter, Ken's grandfather, was a flight engineer for Trans World Airlines. Walter always strived to make his dreams become reality. He was dynamic and adventurous; he did everything from building homes to riding motorcycles to flying planes. His influence taught Ken that there are no limits to what you can accomplish when you set your mind to it. Scott was Ken's nephew. Although his time was short, Scott was fearless. Much like his great grandfather, he never shied away from anything. Scott’s departure taught Ken that life is very short and you must act on your ambitions because you never know when your chance will pass.

Walter Scott Wines’ first vintage, La Combe Verte Pinot Noir, was produced in 2009 at Patricia Green Cellars where Ken traded harvest labor for winemaking space. For the following two vintages, Ken changed location to Evening Land where he began working alongside Dominique Lafon. In 2011, Walter Scott began making Chardonnay, which contributed significantly to both their growing production and group of loyal followers. In 2012, Ken and Erica began leasing their current winery space from the Casteel family of Bethel Heights, which is situated on Justice Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills American Viticultural Area, a sub-appellation of the Willamette Valley AVA. To help accomplish this big move Walter Scott needed some support, so Ken and Erica invited some friends to become part of the business. Sue and Andy Steinman joined the Walter Scott team just before the 2012 harvest.

At Walter Scott, freshness and purity are qualities that we crave in the wines we make; we strive for this through attention to detail in our cellar. French oak is used exclusively and gives us the structure and textures we believe enhance our wines. Each small fermentation and distinct barrel is treated as an individual component of a larger vision. We bottle small lots of single vineyard wines, as well as practice the craft of blending and bottling wines that show classic characteristics of Eola-Amity Hills or the Willamette Valley as a whole. Our intention is to make balanced wines with the signature of place and structural integrity that will allow them to age.

Seems exciting and Walter Scott has certainly piqued my interest. Just placed an order on their website for a mixed 6-pk. Looking forward to hopefully getting it before the Zoom (fingers crossed)! [cheers.gif]

Anybody on the East Coast want to sell me some Walter Scott? Been meaning to buy some for a while and it's too late and hot to come across country in time for next Sat. I'll buy a few from anyone who just has too much and wants to help a brother out. Thanks.

I had the opportunity to visit Walter Scott last summer- amazing winery, better wine, and even nicer people.

What a great opportunity... the barrel samples might be challenging though? Will be hard to decide which of the many awesome bottles to open. [cheers.gif]

I opened the 2018 X-Novo chardonnay last night, fully intending to save some for tonight's zoom, and somehow the rest of the bottle disappeared.

Guess I'll open the 2018 Seven Springs chardonnay for the zoom event and try not to make the same "mistake" flirtysmile

So, what's everyone opening for the Walter Scott Zoom Event tonight? I'm going to open a Chard and Pinot. Most of my X-Novo Chards ('13, '15-17) are offsite, but I just received the 2018's and I have a couple of 2014's downstairs.

Yeah, I don't feel like making the drive to the offsite today, so I'm leaning towards a delayed 30 hour pobega of a 2018 X Novo Chard.

Highly recommend a decant on this. I opened one two weeks ago and it needed a few hours to come out.

Put half the bottle into 5oz containers and I’m gonna drink the last one tonight.

A naive question perhaps. If I asked for an old world exemplar or analog for Walter Scott's Chardonnays what would you say? Interested in the entire range from the "enty" Combe Vert up through the single vineyard bottlings.

Nice, I did a quick inventory check downstairs and I found a couple bottles of the 2011 and 2014 Dumb Ox PN.

Also, I found a few bottles of 2012, 2014, 2015 Cuvee Anne Chards, 2012 Clos Des Oiseaux PN, 2015 and 2017 Freedom Hill Chard, 2014 Cuvee Ruth PN, 2014 Temperance Hill PN, 2014 and 2015 Sojourner PN, 2014 Freedom Hill PN, 16 - 18 La Combe Verte Chards, 2015 Dubay PN and 2017 Sequiter PN.

Well, case purchases receive 10% off and complimentary shipping for orders of 6 bottles or more from Walter Scott.

In conjunction with yesterday's Morrell Wine Zoom Event with Walter Scott and Lingua Franca, Morrell has marked down their inventory of WS and LF wines. Less expensive to buy directly from WS, but a chance to backfill some older vintages.

James, go for a Dumb Ox or one of the 12's. Dumb Ox is performing today. More later...
Thanks Glenn. Actually enjoyed the 2012 CDO PN at a holiday party in December. Smart to decant because I think that they are still tight. I'm leaning towards the 2014 TH PN and 2015 FH Chard. Times ticking and I need to make a final decision.

I put the zoom link in the main post but here again https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89235210855?p ... k3VGlpZz09

Roughly 95 invites requested and sent out. So figure there will be people that don't show up cause they forgot (about 9 invites are sitting in the outbox unread).

First 100 win!

Awesome session from the parts I could catch! I was trying to listen in while prepping some live lobsters. I didn’t realize how much work they are and how long it takes to kill/clean/prep.

Apparently I messed up my phone muting. Apologies!

What were the tasting highlights? Will this be posted online?

I opened a 2014 WV Chard from Walter Scott. Was ~$25 from Full Pull. Good acidity, had that ‘saline’ quality, perfect balance. Amazing QPR...damn it, why did I only buy one.

Thanks,

Jeff
