Big Table Farm

Wirtz Vineyard Pinot Gris 2018

The 2018 Big Table Farm Pinot Gris is sourced from fruit grown by eminent winemaker Brian O’Donnell of Belle Pente. The Pinot Gris was fermented on the skins, giving off a brilliant salmon color. Texturally elegant, the wine shows an exotic edge with ripe red raspberry and kumquat zest that collide with minerals and wild mushroom tones on the palate. Complex and highly unique, this one of a kind Pinot Gris is simply brilliant in its youth and will evolve well for a decade, picking up lovely tertiary aromatics and flavors as it ages.

Oregon Solidarity

Rogue Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir 2018

Made from the grapes California feared had smoke taint; the Oregon winemakers fight back using the grapes to make this rosé in solidarity with the growers who were stiffed. Salmon pink with a slight reddish hue, excellent clarity. Strawberry, citrus and cream flavors, moderate astringency, mineral and grapefruit aftertaste. The only smoke here is in someone’s imagination. — 14 days ago

Adams Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

Sleeper of the long weekend. Blew our minds and atrial constructs. This wine still had years to go which delights one due to the fact it is of a misunderstood vintage. The 07 s are great with high acidity and modest alcohol levels. This wine had these sought after attributes and more. The palette was complete and the overall fruit was prominent and divine. This winemaker scores tremendously on this one!!!! — 3 days ago

Domaine Serene

Grace Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

The ‘Grace Vineyard’ Pinot Noir is a barrel selection from this exceptional site in the Dundee Hills AVA. The aromas are intoxicating right out of the gate, as this warm vintage Pinot Noir is not needing a long decant. Rose water, ripe red plums, strawberry puree and guava aromas all combine with lovely earthy and wet rock nuances that all are woven together in the beautifully glass. Exuding sheer class on the palate, this gorgoeus Pinot Noir slowly unveils ripe red fruits that mingle with minerals, potpourri, exotic spices and shades of wild blackberry jam. The silky texture entices and adds to this wonderful drinking experience. Fantastic in its youth, the Grace Vineyard Pinot Noir will shows wonderful promise for an exceedingly long evoloution ahead.

Pondering Ptolemy Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Like many 09s, arching over the penult of its peak. Some character sacrificed, but still alive and welcome. — 3 days ago

Columbia Gorge Pinot Gris 2014

World’s best back wine label ever: basically, the winemaking is “meticulously select, press lightly and keep our hands off... All the other wonderful qualities of the wine, the rich aromatics, the minerality, the long, complex finish come out of the vineyard”. Pale yellow white, excellent clarity. Citrus and floral notes in nose. Lemongrass, lime peel flavors, rounded mouthfeel, good acidity, almost dry, minimal skin astringency. Minerality? Check. A hint of grapefruit on the finish. Better for sipping and canapés than a hearty meal. — 7 days ago

Iris Vineyards

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2017

Good Pinot Gris in typical Oregon fashion. Light, crisp, fruit forward with stone fruit and lemon zest. Nice find. Hadn’t had this vineyard before. Located in Cottage Grove, Oregon (near Eugene), fruit sources from Chalice Estate and Confluence Vineyards. Dijon clones. 4500 cases produced. The 2016 vintage yielded a 91 score from Wine Enthusiast and an Editor’s Choice for wine. No doubt the 2017 will as well. Seek this one out to try. It’s amazing QPR, winery retail is $16. I picked it up for less at a Portland wine shop. — 13 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc 2014

Second bottle. White floral nose, light citrus, orchard fruit and lactic flavors, mineral finish. Mostly dry, enough acidity but not too much. Good to sip on an evening with college football on TV and a thunderstorm outside. — 10 days ago

Scott Paul Cellars

Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Smells like ripe blackberry bramble.
Tastes of the bramble as well. Cran Pom pops, and offers a very long lovely finish. Tart fruit with high acid lingers for a very long time.
A nice wine to enjoy the last of the summer days.

Your review reminded me of an older UK series "Last of the summer wine.". Nice memory as there were many beloved actors in the series. Cheers!🌻
