Oregon Pinot

Beaux Frères

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2013

Finally able to lock down reservations at Magdalena's. They have a unique set up in that they have a set menu that changes every week, and you are notified the week before if there are spots available...they sell out within 5mins! We were lucky to get on the list for their most recent "Supper Club" as they call it.

Based on the menu, we figured 1 white and 1 red was appropriate. After enjoying my favorite Sauv Blanc (the Addax SB), my buddy Luke (who is a big Pinot fan) brought this to expand our knowledge on pinots and see what Oregon has cooking. At pop and pour, this was delicious. Lots of cherries, leather and dates on the nose. The taste was very different than the aromatics. More leather, Bing cherry, cedar and a touch of rhubarb. A very "dusty" Pinot.

King Estate

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris

Apricot, fig and lemon on the nose with such nice weight on the palate, lees stirring on point, there is effortless entry with perfume and citrus going on. Finish is focused, sharp and juicy with acidity begging for more. — 3 days ago

Renovação Coelho Estate Vineyard Pinot Gris 2013

Citrus, floral and kiwi on the nose. Light, but with creamy feel. Beautiful golden color. Nice start to the evening after a really tough round of golf. Friends on the way. Filets, medley of wild mushrooms, peppers and onions going on the grill....home made caprese salad to start....and a few.huge red on their way up for the cellar fridges downstairs. This night is going for big, dare I say epic. — 15 days ago

Tough does not begin to explain my woes. Epic driver nearly broken on 3rd hole after terrible first 2. Nearly quit golf. Was 10+ better on back 9

Penner-Ash

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Delightful Pinot. Medium+ viscosity, garnet read, some variation toward white at rim. Classic Pinot nose with red cherries, strawberries, musty wood, some tobacco. Palette sees bright cough drops/cherry candies, sweet, caramelized tobacco, nice balance of acid, fruit, and alcohol. Long medium complexity finish. Love these wines, this vintage is tasting great right now! — 6 days ago

9.1

Muted nose of lemon/lemon meringue, lime, pineapple, grapefruit with pit, a soapy character, soft chalkiness and white & yellow spring flowers. Palate has edgy powdery chalkiness, citrus zest blend, pineapple, body has a gummy like character like the nose, the acidity is beautifully round, fresh, lively and the finish is tangy and delicious. Very chug-able. Photos of; the front of Charles Smith Wines tasting room in downtown Walla Walla and a couple of shots of the tasting room interior. — 4 days ago

Rose Of Pinot Gris 2016

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon for David Zinman conducting the BSO through Mozart and two Schumann pieces. On cello today is the amazing Yo-Yo Ma, his first weekend appearance this summer and the Lawn is packed!

Bright cherry and red raspberry, medium acidity, long finish, possibly our favorite OR rosé of the season.

Quite so, and the wine paired deliciously with the sounds from his 275+ year old 'Petunia', it's a feast for your ears.

Whole Cluster pinot noir. If were not as sweet as it is it would get a perfect 10, actually, I am giving it a 10!!!!! This pinot noir is amazing!!!! Its the uncrushed pinot noir grape clusters that give it the sweet finish. Its not sticky like a sweet wine though. It finishes dry. There is that amazing cherry vanilla beginning and a lingering sweet finish of a sweet raspberry. The finale is dry. I must have another sip immediately!!!!!! This is so addictive.

I know your thinking sweet and dry are opposites. Well yes, but this pinot is original ! You must try it.

Medium garnet red. Solid Pinot nose with notes of red cherries, branches, and floral notes. Solid acidity and low to medium tannins (4.5/10). Layers of red fruits, and branches. Not bad at all, great value Pinot from Oregon. Drink till 2021. — a day ago

Single Clone Revana Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

One of my favorite Pinots bar none. It's amazing. Dark, rich sophisticated. Wet leather, spice alongside dark blue fruit. Winery only makes 5 barrels of there best block selection. Rockstar bottle. It was the palate cleanser between the 2 gorgeous cabs. My motto is., if your going to do something, you might as well do it right!!! This definitely did the job!! Simply amazing! — 2 days ago
