Canary Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Color of purple with ruby hue. Quite clear and nice legs. Nose of dark fruits, dried strawberry, aldehyde, oily and crayon, a bit smoky, and fragrance is refined. Taste follows the nose with addition of grapefruit sweetness, strawberry vanilla, zest, mineral, minty, simply quite tasty. Second sip shows some more zest and peppery. Good flavors. Aftertaste shows some more ripe grape and a bit too much bitterness. But still a good one. — 9 days ago

Antica Terra

Aurata Chardonnay 2011

Color me shocked at how good this was. I’m a big fan of Antica Terra wines, and while I’m always impressed, my expectations for this 10yr old OR Chardonnay were vastly blown out of the water.

The main reason I opened this bottle is I thought the age would have been more evident, and it would be channeling a more rich, slightly oxidized type profile, and would go with an assortment of blue cheese I was sampling at a small local event. Upon opening, color is still gorgeously yellow gold. First impression was it came across thin yet still had really vibrant acidity…very steely and mineral driven. About an hour later, this absolutely exploded out of the glass as of it was a different wine. Pear, grilled lemon and lots of honeysuckle aromatics. It bulked up on the palate with supreme texture and balance showing a kiss of oak. Creamy yet weightless. Lemon confit, honeyed golden delicious apple, sea spray, and a rounded finish with plenty of baking spices yet the core of minerality was still there. This left me scratching my head in a good way…I seriously need to find another. This is the best OR Chardonnay I’ve ever had.

@Eric Urbani : Check out OO Wines from Oregon. I’ve only had a few of their Chardonnay’s (haven’t had the pinots), but they are a new and impressive addition to the OR wine scene.

Evening Land Vineyards

Seven Springs Passetoutgrain Gamay Pinot Noir 2019

This wine is fantastic, particularly for the price point and youthful vintage. The Gamay really adds a nice acidity and Rainier cherry fruit character. Reminds me of a Morgon but with more body and fruit. Still, has lovely earthiness with hints of menthol, vanilla, butterscotch, and pine.

I think those rating it lower are expecting an Oregon Pinot Noir, not what this is, which is more of an Oregon Beaujolais.
