Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley

Domaine Drouhin

Laurène Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2011

The 2011 Domaine Drouhin ‘Laurene’ is a sensational effort from this cooler vintage in Oregon. This takes on a classic Burgundian nose with forest floor, white truffle oil, red currant puree and suggestions of white pepper. I love the elegance of this wine aromatically. The mouthfeel and texture to this wine screams elegance, as it is surprising that they were able to attain this level of concentration despite the coldness of the vintage. Red cherry puree, damp earth, cran-raspberry and orange zest flavors marvelously combine. Elegant and esteemed, this is a stunning effort by Domaine Drouhin that will cellar marvelously over the next decade. Drink 2018-2028- 94 — 4 days ago

Domaine Serene

Evenstad Reserve Dundee Hills Chardonnay 2015

Another stunning release from Domaine Serene, the 2015 'Evenstad Reserve' Chardonnay saw 40% new French oak for 13 months prior to bottling. This beautiful wine opens to inviting aromas of brioche toast, nectarine, Pazzaz apple and suggestions of heavy cream. Balanced and poised, yet showing serious mid-palate weight, this possesses a seamless, silky texture laced with flavors of key lime, crème brûlée, toast and orchard fruits which continue to build on the near minute long finish. This is a masterful effort by Domaine Serene and their winemaking team. Drink 2019-2030- 94 — 4 days ago

De Ponte Cellars

D.F.B. Estate Melón Melon de Bourgogne 2016

16 is more tropical than I expected. Still has great acid and finish. Seared scallop, Acorn Squash Purée, Butternut Squash, Toasted Almonds, Aged Balsamic. Genius. Lot of talk today about how food and wine pairing is b.s....🤷‍♂️ I disagree. Strongly. Bigly. — 4 days ago

Ayoub

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

The ‘Estate’ bottling by superstar winemaker Mo Ayoub was sourced from a host of vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Showing a strong translucence the wine opens with strong earthy tones of peat moss and wet stone, combining with lighter citrus and wild blackberry elements. The palate shows a soft texture, as well as a good viscosity and sense of place, with earthy terroir and red fruit flavors dominating. Drink 2018-2024- 90 — 4 days ago

Purple Hands

Stoller Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Bought at winery tasting room. Purple, dense, moderately extracted. Blackberry, briar notes in nose with hints of wet concrete floor, funk, veg and spearmint. Blueberry and blackberry flavors with slightly tart blueberry aftertaste. Mild seed tannins and moderate skin astringency in finish. Nice complexity of fruit with no hints of wood or barrel until an hour after opening. A tad much oak for me; I preferred the wine from the first hour. — 7 days ago

The Eyrie Vineyards

Original Vines Pinot Gris 2015

This simply gorgeous Pinot Gris has a huge bouquet of starfruit, Pazzaz apple, orange blossom and brioche. The mouthfeel and textural elements are gorgeous. There are ripe flavors of Gala apple, nutmeg, starfruit and cantaloupe. This has wonderful freshness and poise. This is a stunner from one of the best Oregon producers of Pinot Gris.

Knudsen Vineyards

Dundee Hills Chardonnay

The nose is quite pronounced with vanilla and toasty oak mixing with marzipan and suggestions of baked apple. The palate shows a good linearity with medium bodied flavors of vanilla cream, ripe pear and hints of butterscotch. Silky smooth through the mid-palate, this is an excellent effort from Kundsen Vineyards. Drink 2019-2029- 91 — 4 days ago
