Oregon Pinot

Willamette Valley Vineyards

Estate Pinot Noir 2017

Eh...it is solidly Pinot but gives me a bit of pause. Different flavor sensations hit but not in a way that makes a full arc. Maybe it needs a couple years? Fruit, ash, then just the cherry acid bop in then oak sensations aka vanilla hop into the pool. It’s a tasty wine. It is complex and structurally relatively balanced but there is something that I still find a tiny bit jarring. This has the potential maybe it just needs a year or so? But I like well enough and want to try other vintages... — 13 hours ago

Big Table Farm

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

A pretty color of ruby, with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, oak, mashrooms, wet leaves, herbs, black pepper and spices.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, strawberries, currants, light alcohol, light barnyard, spices, wood, chocolates and light earth.

Long finish with soft tannins and cherries.

This is a very enjoyable Pinot Noir from Oregon. Easy drinking with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Well balanced and tasty.

Very enjoyable by itself, as a sipping wine, or with food.

Wine Spectator 91 points.

This is one that will age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

A Delicious Pinot Noir, and that doesn't come easy for me 😉

I paired it with hard cheeses and Italian cured meats.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$45.

St Innocent Winery

Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

A notch below the Momtazi Vineyard wine but very good still. Violet and dark fruit aromas. Black cherry, boysenberry, plum, smoke, cedar, and hibiscus on the palate. A solid Oregon pinot. Very enjoyable. — 5 days ago

Abbott Claim Pinot Noir 2014

Color of light burgundy, bubbly and clear. Nose is beautiful with concentrated strawberry vanilla, like a bomb, plus cigar box/tobacco leaves, sweet and ripe aldehyde, crayon, and a touch of mineral. The nose is very fragrant. Taste is silky with refined yet vivid acidity, coke cola, zesty grapefruit sweetness, more concentrated strawberry, ripe dark skin grapes, black pepper, lots of flavors and salivating. Aftertaste is zest and rind dominant with addition of peppery finish. Reminds me of high quality amarone this time. — a day ago

Anne Amie

Two Estates Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

The wine I have opened tonight is the 2015 Anne Amie Vineyard Two Estates Pinot Noir. A barrel selection chosen of their two estates, 67% Twelve Oaks and 33% Anne Amie vineyards.

On the nose I am getting black cherry, black raspberry, cinnamon, spice, incense, mint and smokey oak.

On the palate there is black cherry, black plum, cola, clove, backing spice and oak.

The wine is medium bodied with medium + mouthwatering acidity and medium to + grainy tannins that lead to a medium to long dark fruit smokey oak finish. We are headed into another weekend so please be safe and enjoy yourselves with your wine of choice. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Cameron Winery

Cuvée L & E Abbey Ridge Pinot Noir 2002

This is lovely but a little light and overly candied. Good acidity and not much tannic bite but the nose doesn’t have the depth and savoriness of the best Camerons — 2 days ago

Kelley Fox Wines

Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Just gorgeous—maybe my favorite yet from Kelley Fox. The old vines, elevation and pacific breeze of this site clearly contribute to an incredible elegance and transparency. Vibrant strawberry, rhubarb and black cherry with spice, forest floor and tilled soil. I don’t have enough experience to know how high end wine ages under screw cap but honestly it’s in a great place right now. — 21 hours ago
