Carter Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Color of different shades of purple with mix of ruby tone. Nose is nice with elegant aldehyde, plum, a bit chocolate, sweet dried strawberry, oily paint, and the nose keeps coming. Nose is far different from conventional Pinot Noir, but more like high end Barolo. Taste follows the nose with addition of coke cola flavors, a bit minty and zesty, a bit vanilla sweetness, low tannins and hint of ripe berries. Silky and flavorful. Aftertaste is long and shows some more ripe grapes. A gem. — a day ago

Angelicall Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

Terrific rose of pinot noir from Maggie Harrison of Antica Terra. This is not your garden-variety rose: serious skin contact time coupled with her incredible wine-making abilities has produced a really substantive wine. Reminds me a bit of Manfred’s SQN roses (not surprising, I guess, since Maggie worked with Manfred for I believe a decade or so before striking out on her own with what I think is the best winery in the Willamette Valley). Do yourself a favor and try to snag some of this. Terrific juice. — 10 days ago

I am about as big a fan of this rosé as anyone. Regardless of price, I absolutely love it. I know you also enjoy Andremily (as do I)…have you tried their rosé? It’s bigger and more rich in style, akin to SQN rosés, more so than the Angelicall. But, I believe those three rosés belong in a category all to their own!

@Shay A, I have had thd Andremily (only bought 3 - should have gotten more, because these will age for a couple of years. Check out Paix sur Terre’s rose of mourvedre. Lighter style, but Ryan Pease is growing those mourvedre grapes specifically to make rose.

Very much in the style of the Sandhi wines from Santa Barbara. Touch of flint, matchstick, lemon pie and cream. #oregon #chardonnay #eolaamityhills — 9 days ago
