Olenik Chehalem Mountain Pinot Noir 2012

The 2012 Patricia Green Cellars Olenik Pinot Noir. From Chehalem Mountain Newberg, Oregon.

On the nose this had strawberry, stewed plum, licorice, spice, vanilla, forest floor and earth.

On the palate there was cherry, strawberry, mushroom, leather, black tea and undergrowth.

This wine is medium bodied with medium to medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that mive into a medium to long mushroom earthy finish. I hope everyone is well? I just came off a 2 and a half week bought of a head cold. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Please have agreat week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Silice Pinot Noir 2021

This wine is stunning! 

It has a medium ruby color with pronounced & complex notes of strawberry rhubarb, black cherry compote, blueberry 🫐, boysenberry, pomegranate, kirsch, violet, hibiscus, dried bergamot, black licorice, anise, clove, cardamom, & nutmeg. The palate offers mouth-watering acidity, a medium body, plush tannins, medium alcohol (13%), & a lingering finish.

It’s no wonder this was among Wine Spectator’s top 100 wines last year, featured at #32!  Cheers to that!! 🥂

Estate Dopp Creek Pinot Noir 2021

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2021 Pinot Noir Estate Dopp Creek opens with a dark, dusty bouquet blending cedar shavings and brown spice with blood orange and sour cherries. Softly textured and round, it opens with a pretty inner sweetness complementing rose-tinged red fruits. It finishes fresh with a raspberry and licorice tinge as a bump of residual acidity adds a lasting, lively character. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2024)

Ridgecrest Pinot Noir 2008

9.4

Earthy, meaty, leathery, darkly fruited. Class, breed, finesse. Classic old school Ribbon Ridge Pinot. This wine needed these 15 years to express all that. I expect at least another five years of aging potential. — 6 months ago
