Pinot Meunier 2012

This wine is so cool! Took a break from my Cali Cab education tonight. For starters I didn't even know anyone was making Pinot Meunier outside of Champagne, much less as a single varietal. But then I found out it is technically a clone of Pinot Noir. It is somehow light and very ripe and full at the same time. The acidity is delightfully high, there is this backnote of cola that goes so beautifully with the cherry/red currant nature of this. Love it. @Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher I think you sent this my way. Thank you! — a day ago

Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. I never tried it. Glad you liked it. Don’t think I’ve ever seen a 9.7 from you🤔, I’ll have to get some for myself now

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Well, it could be mistaken for a Gamay which is my favorite. With cabs being your favorite I'm not sure how you'd feel but I'm very much digging this! I'll be curious to hear your thoughts! I wonder if the 2012 is still available...

Bethel Heights

Estate Grown Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2013

It is Saturday night and it is raining outside. What better way to enjoy a rainy night then opening up a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. I have opened the 2013 Bethel Heights Estate Pinot Noir to enjoy while watching some hockey.

Upon opening, fresh red fruit is ever present with cherry, strawberry, cranberry, vanilla, roe petal, mushroom and light earth.

The first sip is mineral driven with good red fruit, cherry, cranberry, raspberry, pomegranate, mushroom and a nice earthy forest soil.

This wine is well balanced with a medium body mouth feel, medium to + acidity, medium smooth rounded tannins and a fresh vibrant medium long finish. Continue having a great weekend and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Oregon Pinot Blanc 2014

Really quite fantastic. Phenols off the chart. Oily. Some pear skin and apricot going on. Rocks, touch of anise, lily. Still quite tight. I imagine this will be great on day 2. Fascinating. — 9 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

This has lots of promise, although I think I would wait on opening this one. It needs another year or two in the bottle to really show its stuff. That said though, this was really good tonight, but it should only get better — 7 days ago

Antica Terra

Antikythera Pinot Noir 2010

Terrific wine from Maggie Harrison at Antica Terra. Absolutely classic Oregon pinot nose (which for me is a combination of cool climate pinot aromas coupled with a great earthiness - a hypothetical hybrid between a Central Coast pinot with a Premier Cru burgundy). Has integrated beautifully in the 2-3 years since we last tried it, confirming for me the notion that top-flight Oregon pinots need a few years in the cellar for them to really shine. The ample (but not overwhelming) acidity coupled with the subdued sweetness on the palate paired beautifully with the roasted butternut squash pasta we enjoyed from Chef James at Dusty’s. Great balance through a lingering but lively finish, this wine has several years of evolution left. Way to go, Maggie! — 10 days ago

Foris Vineyards

Rogue Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Southern Oregon Pinot. Elegant & lightly spiced. Silky tannins with fresh acid. Needs a few minutes to come together, but once it does it shows some complex aromas to balance the cherry laden palate. — 4 days ago

9.7

Possibly undrinkable for the first twenty years of its life, this is simply stunning now. Reduction is still prominent but there are many layers of subtle fruit, firm structure and joy deep within this bottle. Beautiful bottle of Oregon Pinot — 8 days ago

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Num num with lamb shank. So bright. Clarity of red fruit, fine acidic & tannic backbone, medium finish with outstanding depth. And this is not even appellation specific... — 8 days ago

Is it really necessary to include body parts in your posts? I find this extremely offputting.
