Oregon Pinot

Armonéa

Summit Vineyard Estate Pinot Gris 2014

This six-year-old Pinot Gris from Oregon is drinking very nicely now. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Big and bold with lots of interesting notes both on the nose and palate.

Showing citrus, bruised apples, light grapefruits, vegetables, peaches, minerals, white pepper and spices.

A great wine to have by itself, share with friends and talk about.

I love these white wines that with some age become something completely different.

Better when not very cold.

I had this vintage a year ago, and it is much better this time around.

12.8% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$25.

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Fainter cherry, wet stone, graphite aromas. Stronger red fruit on the palate than the soft aroma would suggest yet still graceful, juicy tartness, touch of smoke on the finish with gossamer tannins. Elegant QPR champ #willamettevalley #pinotnoir here. — 13 days ago

Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir 2014

Another excellent btl. Pop and pour...very 2014 in being forward/ripe. On the nose: tea leaves, cola, spice, and cranberry. On the palate, fantastic, wild strawberry, cola, black tea...soft tannin on the finish. Showing wondeful secondary, and drinking very well...perhaps peak maturity? — a day ago

Caballus

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Tightly wound and in need of additional age. Dark red in color. Raspberry, blackberry and earth. Solid acid spine. Tannins need further tempering. Built to last and scored with a eye to the future. A very small production (174 cases) partnership of Veronique Drouhin and Isabelle Dutartre. — 12 days ago

Gravel Road Pinot Noir 2018

Delectable Wine
9.1

Vivid magenta. Perfumed red berry, cherry and floral scents are complemented by smoky mineral and spice flourishes that build in the glass. Sweet and energetic on the palate, offers raspberry, cherry, spicecake and candied rose flavors that open up slowly on the back half. Finishes long, smooth and floral, with slow-building tannins adding framework and gentle grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2020)

Medium Ruby color with aromas of red fruit, oak and spice on this KW entry level Pinot. On the palate flavors of strawberry, cranberry, red cherry and red plum with notes of vanilla, cinnamon and cedar. Gorgeous acidity with medium tannins, full-body with great mouthfeel. Medium finish, very good now. — 14 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2016

Whoa...this was a huge surprise. Served double blind. This wine almost came across as Riesling from the Nahe or even an Austrian Grüner Veltliner from a good producer. Pale color, slightly green tinged...steely looking. Lifted aromatics with all kinds of stone fruit, some green apple, some white flowers, some mangosteen and a little bit of a benzine note. On the palate it’s more fruit cocktail but not sweet...just a very open wine with a really nice spine of acid. Great finish. None of us thought Pinot Gris or New World and yet it was such a pleasant surprise when it was revealed. Definitely a wine if distinction. Keep an eye out for this bargain. — 16 days ago
