Oregon Wine Awards - Winners

2015 Diamond of The Decade

In celebration this year's 7th Annual Oregon Wine Awards we've added a very special level of recognition which acknowledges Pacific Northwest Wines with longevity, class, balance and beauty from the 2005 Vintage. These great wines - like great Burgundy and Bordeaux - are bestowed the honor of Diamond of The Decade. Our Tasting Panel evaluated wines from the 2005 vintage based upon their ability to mature and develop into first-class exquisite examples of their respective styles. Thanks to all the wineries that submitted selections of library wines for evaluation. Congratulations for crafting world-class wines from Washington, Oregon and Idaho. In 2016 we'll celebrate wines from the 2006 Vintage.
