Victoria Pinot Noir 2017

2017 vintage tasted May 2021. Instead of dialing everything up to 11, the wine maker has chosen restraint over flashiness. The scent of rhubarb and nettles on the nose made me think this wine was going to be a bit harsh and puckery, But from the first sip it begins flirting with you, and, as it opens up, it becomes full-blown seductive. Just a hint of currants and ripe cherries on the front of the tongue. A silky tannic structure kicks in on the mid palate, and it perfectly balances a few amusing mineral high notes against some cooler low notes—the low notes are almost minty (Please don’t take that in a bad way because it really works!). This wine has a long finish, and both the low notes and the high notes continue ringing like little bells on the taste buds long after the swallow. You’ll want to pause and enjoy this finish before you take the next sip, otherwise you’ll be missing something special. Everything about this wine is understated sophistication. — 12 days ago

Estate Dopp Creek Pinot Noir 2018

Just tried ‘18, again, wow, very nice! Located in the western end of Dopp Road where the Chehalem Mountains converge with Ribbon Ridge, medium Ruby with aromas of red fruits and alluring spice. On the palate ripe raspberry and wild cherry with pepper, toasty spice and earthy notes. Young with fine integrated tannins, well defined, elegant with underlying richness, long finish ending with oaky notes. Nice value!  Just love this wine, will age well!! Great value! — 20 days ago
