Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Writing is all about QPR for this table wine. Less than $16 for a completely inoffensive true Pinot = a great deal. All Willamette Valley: darker color, higher alcohol than listed 11.5% BS on the label, less nose, more fresh backyard small plums than cherries mid-palate. Surprisingly satisfying finish that lingers far longer than this price point would suggest!!! Buy as an affordable table wine and to share with the bulk of friends who like wine but have zero palate. — 2 months ago

Windhill Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Earthy and spicy. Bold right out of the bottle — no decant needed. Great balance with grilled lamb. Thanks @Kim Brater — 3 months ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

Hello everyone! It is Friday night and I have opened the 2019 Elk Cove Vinyards Willamette Valley Estate Pinot Noir Rosé.

On the nose I am receiving notes of strawberry, cherry,red raspberry, tangerine peel, red currant, nice floral notes and minerality.

On the palate there is strawberry, cherry, red raspberry, spice, earthy notes and minerality.

This wine is medium bodied with a beautiful pink color and medium + acidity with medium fine tannins which brings you right into a medium to long fresh fruit finish. We have made it to another weekend and I hope that everyone are staying healthy and safe. Let's have a great weekend with continued health. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Vigna del Cuculo Superiore Barbera d'Alba 2016

2020 spring / summer. While the swing back towards traditional winemaking in Barolo and Barbaresco is wonderful to see, it seems that there are still many banner barberas made with lots of new oak and the like. There are plenty of simple, delicious barberas made in a balanced fashion, finding a traditionally-made wine exploring barbera’s potential in top sites isn’t all that common. Here’s an example of why that’s a shame - effusive with black and red fruit, concentrated without being heavy, balancing acidity and tannin, and a bit of spice — 2 months ago
