Intense aromas of cherry, raspberry, overripe strawberry and some potting soil. The pallet is fluid with red fruit, and dried mushroom. Medium bodied, smooth, dry with lively acidity and a hearty finish. Lovely and complex Pinot Noir with tons of character paired with French onion soup. — a day ago
Deep Ruby (darker than most OR Pinot’s) with aromas of blue and red fruits with an array of spices and wet stone notes. On the palate youthful flavors of cherry and fresh strawberry, licorice, smoke and tea notes with elegant spice. Fine tannins, long ending with fruit and tangy spice and mineral notes. Great now, has some short term aging potential but might lose the vibrant character. — 4 hours ago
Pop and pour. I've found significant variation in perceived brett on Cameron wines from vintage to vintage and, frankly, from cuvee to cuvee. I adore these wines, and this bottle is no exception. A touch of reduction and some.bretty funk, but the brett blew off with 30 min of air. On the nose: pure sweet strawberry and raspberry, spice, soft vanilla, pepper...To be honest, this bottle showed better than the 18 Reserve and closer to the 18 Clos Electrique in spirit, at least aromatically. On the palate: fantastic density and good acid, loads of wild strawberry, soft leafy notes and soft tannin on the finish. This is downright excellent, and has forced me to revise my views on the 2018 OR vintage (speaking in broad strokes, I've far preferred 15 and 17 vintages to 18, until this bottle and the Hundred Suns Bednarik I had recently). — 15 days ago
Pale lemon in color with a green hue.
Nose of citrus, limes, green apples, white pepper and light earth.
Medium bodied with medium acidity. Crisp and refreshing.
Dry on the palate with limes, light grapefruits, green apples, white pepper and lemons.
Long finish with lemons and spices.
This is a very tasty Pinot Gris from Oregon. Nicely balanced with mild complexity. Not bitter nor tart. Love it.
This 3 year old is drinking very nicely now, and will be even better in a year or two.
Lemony and refreshing, and good by itself or with food.
Paired nicely with hardwood smoked Ahi Tuna and a gorgeous view by the lake.
12.9% alcohol by volume.

Start the week off right with an Oregon Pinot Noir. I have opened the 2019 Ken Wright Cellars Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Sourced from 10 different Willamette Valley Vineyards.
On the nose there is wonderful notes of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, spice, clove, spice, cola, vanilla and forest floor.
On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, spice, rose petal, cedar and earth.
This is a medium body wine with medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine grain tannins that leads into a long red fruit finsh. The week ahead has just started and we need to be fully engaged and active. As always stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 18 days ago
