Coeur Blanc White Heart Pinot Noir 2017

One of the great White Pinot Noirs made in the world, I have been fascinated by this wine since it was first made more than a decade ago. The 2017 ‘Coeur Blanc’ opens with an enticing bouquet of cantaloupe, marzipan, white rose and shades of Pazzaz apple that all meld together nicely in the glass. The palate reveals a refined, silky texture and entices. Generous on the mouth, this white Pinot Noir unveils seriously good range from melon tones to green apple and shades of wild mushroom and wet stone. The bright sense of minerality and the generous texture really sing here. While outstanding now, this true heavyhitter of a wine will only become more silky and complex as it ages.

Is it acidly like some white wines? Acid upsets my old tummy.

@Hugh O'Riordan I would implore you to check this out. Acidity is relatively high but I bet this would upset the stomach. I think this is the best example of new world white Pinot Noir 🍷👌

Arterberry Maresh

Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

3rd generation grower Jim Maresh launched his own brand in 2007. Maresh Vineyard was first planted in 1970 by grandparents Jim & Loie. Aromas of attractive red berry fruits with a touch of cooling mint. On the palate cherry and berry fruits, well structured, with a touch of rustic spice. Fine soft tannins, balanced with acidity, medium-bodied, long finish ending with earthy mineral character. Very Nice! — 7 days ago

Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Delectable Wine
9.5

Translucent ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet exudes red fruit liqueur, cherry pie, potpourri and Asian spice qualities that are sharpened by a smoky mineral overtone. Deeply concentrated and energetic on the palate, offering sappy, mineral- and spice-laced raspberry, cherry-cola and rose pastille flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. Conveys an impressive blend of power, delicacy and finishes extremely long and lively, with harmonious tannins and lingering floral and red fruit liqueur notes.

Murto Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

2014 vintage. This wine's potential is hidden in a shroud of structure that needs a lot of cellar time and/or an extended decant. Intense red and blue fruits bursting with energy and depth. Rating reflects current time, but with significant upside potential. Should be great in 2+ years. — 13 days ago

Kelley Fox Wines

Maresh Vineyard Pinot Gris rose

Kelley’s Pinot Gris spends almost 3 weeks on the skins with foot treading once each day. You can imagine the resulting flavor explosion. Think cranberries and crushed wild flowers and a refreshing mineral water finish. This is the type of rosé that can stand up to a full flavored dish! 😋💖 — 6 days ago

My third and last bottle of the vintage. I love this varietal and just want to give it another shoutout. Support the producers of the more obscure grape varieties out there, if you can. Cheers! — 22 days ago
