This wine is marketed as Willamette Valley Estate Grown Pinot Noir, not “Incline.” Blend from Estate vineyards in Dundee Hills (Iron Filbert Vineyard) and Yamhill-Carlton (Quartz Acorn Vineyard) AVAs. Roses and bright red fruit on the nose. Cherry, cranberry and plum fruit, with graphite, violets and spice. Great QPR. — 4 months ago
Sometimes a restrained nose is the tighter, more impressive act. Less room for error. If this was a smidge oxidized, it wouldn't be what it is. Which is seriously wonderful Sauvignon Blanc. Voluptuous but very Sancerrian - precise.
Nothing to sniff out but the feintest apple, pear, jasmine blossom, and curls of smoke. Big mouth for big concentrated flavors. Clementine, green apple, and peach. — 4 months ago
