Established in 1987, DD Oregon is owned by famed Burgundy producer, Maison Joseph Drouhin. Hand-crafted by fourth generation winemaker, Veronique Drouhin-Boss. Ruby with fruit and sweet floral scents, very French in style. On the palate cherry and blueberry with pepper and earthy notes. Young but integrated tannins, well defined, elegant with underlying richness, long finish.

Color is light cranberry juice, clear with orange note on the rim. Nose is spice, red cherry, some flowering note, and strawberry. Taste is quite silky, sweet, and juicy, really mellow with berries and zesty tangerine, some spices, and a bit of mineral and tannins show at very last. Aftertaste is a mix of sweetness. Mellow and slightly above the average. — 6 days ago
I love the character of this vintage. Leaner and more focused than the 2014, which is also a remarkable wine. Violets, wild raspberry, black truffle, vanilla, star anise and a hint of dark chocolate. Excellent staying power with forceful but not blunt or overbearing tannins. Broad mouthfeel, yet buoyant acidity. Very, very delicious and expressive. — 8 days ago
It is Friday night again and I have picked up just recently this 2014 Panther Creek Wimemakers Cuveé from the Willamette Valley that I wanted to try.
On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, vanilla, smokey oak, spice, black olive, violet and earth.
The nose reveals notes of dark cherry, raspberry, strawberry, clove, cola, vanilla, wet leaves, spice, forest floor and earth.
This wine is medium body with medium + acidity and medium sandy tannins that lead to a medium to long earthy fruit finish. A serviceable wine that would go nice with many different dishes. Let's start this weekend off right and make this a great one. Please stay safe and enjoy yourselves. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 10 days ago
Has a French touch. A ripe style despite 13.5%. 2016 was a hot year. Mostly dark fruit, black tea, just a hint of cherry 🍒 and raspberry. Faint whiff of cardamom and mint. Fantastic tannin management. More big than elegant. Long and complex. For the money a really good wine. — 4 days ago
Warm cinnamon like bark of a nose, spicy and welcoming.
Tar little berries, smooth scone like yeastiness, and zippity kumquat acidity.
Low tannins, hints of those twigs and branch berries, the occasional fresh St.Johns bay leaf.
A perfect Pi in a bottle on 3.14. — 11 days ago
The new Family Reserve is a clear ruby in the glass with color to the rim. Somewhat shy nose of black cherry and weak tea. Palate is medium bodied and confirms the nose with medium acidity and medium tannins throughout. Wow! The good folks at Coelho brought their A-plus game to this one! A super elegant PN that will serve every purpose you have for Pinot Noir, including holding if you wish. Classic pairs are its friend. Unusual pairs will sing too. Drink now through 2026. — 8 days ago
So we started with this before the fish entree and I'm returning after the white Bordeaux....
Medium light purple color. Medium body. Some greenish nose notes. Oak notes detected. Tea on the palate, with spearmint. Chewy. Medium tannins, medium-low acidity. I like this...
