Extended Tirage Willamette Valley Sparkling Blend 2002

Okay...I’m a believer! Wow, this wine exceeded all expectations. Medium gold in the glass, just enough acidity to keep things interesting, and on the downslope for its effervescence. But the swirl of fruit flavors was intoxicating... fig, persimmon, kiwi, ripe golden pineapple and a melange of citrus. Fun! — 4 days ago

The Marigny Carbonic Maceration Pinot Gris 2019

One more for the summer. The prettiest Pinot Gris I ever saw.

Blood orange, cedar strips, and incense. Flavors of tart spiced citrus carry us right into the next season.

Barbie Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Blanc 2019

Another winner from Kelley Fox. Pale straw color with slight hint of green. A little bit of peach on the nose. Palate is wonderfully pure with the sensation of rainwater, with lip smacking citrus, apricot, underripe melon and sea salt, some vanilla but not at all marked by wood. There is a creamy roundness to the body that adds dimension to the piquancy of the attack — 3 days ago

Terroir Series Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

My first exposure to this producer was with their higher caliber pinots (and cabs) and so this tier is rather unimpressive, but still suitable for everyday consumption. Fragrant notes of potpourri, plums, cloves, iron/game, damp soil. I enjoyed the nose more than the palate, but I can easily see this as being a crowd-pleaser. As such, I wouldn’t mind having a few of these on hand at $28/bottle 🤷🏻‍♂️ — 9 days ago

We’re big fans of this wine! We rarely buy wine by the case, but this is our exception.

You and I both. Rarely purchase more than a six pack of anything. We purchased two cases of this. @Steve Anderson

It truly took a few months for the acid to calm down. It’s absolute been sensational for the last 3 months. I’ve got four bottles left

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Excellent value and nearly everything you want in an entry level Oregon Pinot noir. A bit darker and more robust than I expected, and at 13.7% labeled abv. But quite balanced with darker red berries, some spice / chocolate notes, and slightly noticeable tannins. Lacking just a bit of acid on the finish for the freshness I’d love. — a day ago

Helioterra

Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Revisiting vintage. Fairly dark for a Rosé but plenty fruity and tasty. Good acid but it’s all about strawberry jam in the mouth with length. Needs a bit of time to settle after opening but aged well for a Rosé, honestly. Some lactic and mineral character on the finish. — 4 days ago

The Great Pretender GSM 2017

This is the 100% Syrah, not the GSM blend. Smoke, olives, black and blue fruits, and dried herbs. Lots of vanillin character for the first 5 minutes but that quickly blew off to reveal a nice earthiness that bolstered the rest of the palate. Very enjoyable. — 3 days ago

Vivacé Sparkling Gewürztraminer Blend

Wowwww. A mouthfeel of emotions. Toasty notes cascading into pear ginger baked apple cinnamon and citrus peel. Such a brilliant blend that pairs swimmingly with squash and all things fall. — 2 days ago
