No pix, but I did want to thank and salute our Alaska brother for a very memorable day about a week or so ago.

Mrs. Tuttle and I met Mike and his charming SO in the Willamette Valley for an afternoon of tasting Pinot Noirs. We followed that up with an amazing dinner at the mushroom-savvy Joel Palmer House.

It was a really great day, and I want to thank Mike again for taking the time to share the experience and his knowledge with us. We had a lot of fun, and I eagerly look forward to our next visit, whenever and wherever it is.

Salut, my friend.

I was thinking more along the lines of Charlie Sheen.

It was a long over do get together Tom. I'm glad we finally were able to make our schedules work. That dinner was killer. I liked it better than the Painted Lady, which is supposedly, the area's top place to eat.

I had no idea Pinot Noir could vary so much from winery to winery and also with each winery's different vineyards. I've always like the varietal, but was a bit concerned that tasting too much of it would saturate my pallet. Even after 20 or so wineries during our four days in the valley, I was still excited to try the next winery. I plan to go back and hit a few more wineries in the near future.
