Bomb Wines/Carden Cellars
Two labels, Bomb and Carden, targeting different markets. Both are high-end wines with the Bomb label for those who appreciate a modern, artsy approach with labels designed by New York artist Jason Borbay. The Carden labels are sleek and luxe and target a more traditional client. Both labels offer Oregon Pinot Noir and Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon.
Grapes are sourced from top vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley (Pinot Noir) and Washington State (Cabernet Sauvignon). The winemaker is renowned Tony Rynders, formerly the winemaker at Domaine Serene. Currently Bomb/Carden is in the process of acquiring vineyard land to plant as a joint venture with winemaker Tony Rynders. Inaugural Pinot Noir release was from the 2009 vintage. Production in 2012 was 2,000 cases.
Articles About Bomb Wines/Carden Cellars
2009 Bomb Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir
14.3% alc., 496 cases, $50. From several vineyards with a range of soils, elevations, vine age and clones. 50% Yamhill-Carlton District, 32% Eola-Amity Hills, 13% Chehalem Mountains and 5% Ribbon Ridge appellations. Aged 14 months in 60% new French oak. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Well-perfumed with scents of black cherry juice, dark berry jam, and dark red rose petals. Delicious black raspberry essence that is well spiced with an earthy, mildly oaky undertone. The fruit really makes an impression on the mid palate. Plenty of body yet soft in the mouth and easy to like. This is the bomb. Very good. Reviewed November 24, 2012 ARTICLE »
