Four Winds Willamette Valley PInot Noir 2014

100 cases produced in 2014 from a 4.3 acre vineyard, this is pure and decadent. Nose is sweet, ripe red and blue fruit, lavender, cotton candy, herbs, and soil. A very tactful use of stem inclusion is apparent. Plush in the mouth, firm mid-palate, and an earthy finish that won’t quit. I’m not always nuts about Pinot Noir, but this is both delicate and powerful with loads of character. — 19 hours ago

Patricia Green Cellars

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

The winemaker for PG has referred to the 2018 vintage as the best raw material they’ve ever seen. With the gravitas of this producer and their previous work at Torii Mor & other places, that’s high praise. If this entry level cuvée is a good indicator, then look out. Great power & finesse already and a simply enchanting nose. Few producers cover Oregon as completely as Patricia Green and you can taste the deft hand behind this vintage and bottling. Get some. — 7 days ago

Wow, this was...unique. Don’t have previous experience with this wine so I’m not sure of how true to form this was. One thing for sure...WHOLE CLUSTER. Lots of black pepper crusted rhubarb notes to where it was about spicy, almost like a light northern Rhône Syrah on the nose. The palate showed sage, herbal and oregano spices...chimichurri dipped cherries and even some olive? Not sure I’d be able to call this Pinot if served it blind. — 8 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Ruby hue, medium concentration. Pink rim variation. Baskets full of fresh red fruit, like raspberries, strawberries, and cherries, and baking spice notes, herbal and vegetal influences, and tobacco leaf. A light body and elegant finish. Nicely balanced on the palate with strong fruit character and moderate acidity. 13% ABV. 2017 Vintage. #ponzivineyards #marisa #luisa #sisterlylove #willamettevalley #newworldwine #pinotnoir #pleasepassthepinot — 17 hours ago

Surlie Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc 2017

Citrus all day & night on both nose and palate. Great acid & freshness makes this way too easy to enjoy. Great tension between the fruit & dry notes on the finish — 2 days ago

9.3

Closing the night with Penner-Ash. Had this upon its release at the winery. It shows nice evolution...rounder, elegant with softer spice.

The body is ruby, ripe & full. The wine is brooding on the nose & palate. It’s a well extracted, sweeter version of burgundy. Ripe, ruby; dark cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, poached strawberries & hints of floral blueberries & raspberries. The spice is dark with a little heat, soft; clove, nutmeg & vanilla, mixed dark berry cola, black licorice, river stones, limestone, some crushed rocks, moist clay, dark, moist, turned earth, some fresh herbs & eucalyptus, pine tree sap, dark, melted chocolate with fresh & slightly candied; dark, red, blue flowers set in violets. The acidity is round and like a cool shower on a warm day. The long finish is ruby, ripe, well balanced, polished that falls into dark spices on the persistent long set.

Cristom

Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Wednesday night and I have opened the 2016 Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

On the nose there is beautiful fruit, cherry, cranberry, raspberry, clove, matchbook, smoke, wet leaves and earth.

On the palate there is bing cherry, cranberry, raspberry, clove, spice, hibiscus and earth.

This wine is medium bodied and a smooth mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that moves into a medium to long spicy dark fruit finish. Only two more days left to the work week and then the weekend. Stay safe and have a great rest of the week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2013

A solid choice for Saturday night in. Showing some mushroom/clove secondary notes with tart fruit and plenty of acidity. Peak drinking right now. Tannins are in the rear view, but showing some interesting complexity. Underrated producer. — 5 days ago
