Willamette Valley Unfiltered Pinot Noir 2012

This is the 2012 J. Christopher Willamette Valley Unfiltered Pinot Noir from Newberg, Oregon.

On the nose is bright cherry, strawberry, cranberry, clove, vanilla, sweet oak, barnyard funk, cinnamon and soil.

Onnthe palate I found cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cola, mushroom, hibiscus, black tea, spice and earth.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and fine supple tannins that leaves you with a long red fruit dusty soil finish. This weekend looks to be a good one. Go out and enjoy yourselves and try some nice wines. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2018

From magnum. 95% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Noir with lees. Sees barrel and steel with lees playing a big part along the way. So unique. Introspective. Faint blush in the glass but all about the texture. Salty and chalky. Long finish that is very faintly oxidative. These Morgen Long wines are really saying something. — 7 days ago

Smoky meat of a nose

Medium bodied with bright cranberry, pomegranate, spicy, with snappy jolly rancher acidity.
Lovely.
That smoked thing reminds me of Tasmania Pinots..

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris

This one is one with the soil from which it comes much like a wine you might hope for on an evening in Burgundy. I was very surprised to get that impression with this CA Lodi Pinot that is in fact earthy but finely done. Hand picked grapes, basket pressed… interesting for sure! — a day ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2020

Medium Ruby with aromas of berries, floral and spice notes. On the palate flavors of cherry and black raspberry with notes of currants, pepper and cinnamon spice and earthy oak notes. Aged for 10 months on French oak, fine grainy tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, vanilla oak character. Very nice. — 21 hours ago

Havlin Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

N: Very grassy, stony, a hint of pineapple coming through.Mineral, almost the beachyness* of Chablis or…Manzanilla.
P: Subdued Green apple, crunchy, some salt, Interesting wood on the palate from combination of French & Oregonian oak.
It’s there, but not interfering. No but-tah.
Delicious, snappy, refreshing.
Thanks @Fasselections

9.5

Super mineral nose with discreet framing oak. Lemon flesh. Some rainer cherries. Saline and iodine. Subtle yet focused and incredibly complex nose. Such nice earth and mineral tones. Smells like Burgundy of yesteryear. Palate is so lean, salty and concentrated with a lingering hint of complex sweetness from the wood on the incredibly persistent finish. So juicy and leaning on the palate and just laser focused. So long. This has much more to give and has closed down a bit since I tasted it last. But a stunner. I’ll be back as it airs.

After 4 hours this is a wonder and has opened beautifully. Clear barely ripe granny smith apple, stunning mineral breadth and some white flowers. Palate is so juicy and saline. Luscious. It’s loosened up quite a bit. Long, structured finish. Super juicy. Fantastic.

VGW Chardonnay 2017

I like this one a lot. I really think this needs more time to fully evolve, but it’s drinking nicely now. An elegant Chardonnay. Super golden color really stands out. A nice minerality that hits mid palate. For me it’s the wet stone and acidity that I like the most, along with the subtle fruit. Definitely not trying to be a California Chard. Burgundian style in Oregon? Maybe. — 10 days ago

I agree. Definitely a Burgundian style coming out of OR.

Sent them an email yesterday. Hoping to get on the list. @Shay A Poured me an exceptional bottle of Chardonnay from them. Should’ve taken a pic of the bottle. Fell in love with it

@David L : It was their 2017 Eola Springs Chardonnay. Hate admitting it, but I do notice an enjoyment factor increasing the more expensive I go up in their offerings.
