Heritage Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

This is by far my favorite Pinot Noir. It has a very nice ruby color, is absolutely clear, has a medium body, medium notes of primarily red fruit, and an exquisite medium finish. There is no amber ring in the glass, something I typically do see in most Pinots. This wine is perfectly ready for drinking. If you were to blind taste this, you might mistake it for a lighter Merlot. From Willamette Valley, it is superb. If you have had Montinore Pinot Noir, you’ll notice this to have a fuller mouth feel and longer finish. — 2 months ago

Borealis The Northern Whites Willamette Valley White Blend

Fragrant. Wild citrus. Reminds me of what the kitchen smells like when my Ma would peel mangos from our backyard garden in Florida.

A welcome, rounded wildflower and honey sweetness, balanced with a subtle kick of acidity to finish.

It’s pleasant. Reminds me of a writing retreat I went to up in the Green Mountain National Forest outside Middlebury, Vermont. Perfect for sipping while sitting in Adirondack chairs and taking in an errant, cool summer breeze.

L'Orange Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2015

E V
9.2

This is a review for the L'Orange 2015 made with pinot gris, 13.6% ABV: loved this wine - beautiful tangerine color, high acidity and low sugars, extremely pleasant mineralogy throughout, nose of light apricot, elderflower, and rose water, pallette was dominated with bright lemon and notes of kumquat and tangelo, longer tanic finish with bright lemon. Would pair with seafood - scallops, salmon, lobster (bisque). Paid $22 wholesale. — 2 years ago
