Oregon Pinot

Purple Hands

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Honest pour to relax at my new digs after a hard day of work. 2800 cases made. Ruby red, light to moderate pigment extraction, excellent clarity. Fresh raspberry and strawberry aromas with a touch of funk. Intense raspberry flavor with strawberry and a hint of cherry. Light skin astringency, medium weight tannins, good acid but not quite tart. Could use a little time to take the edge off those skin tannins, at least 30 minutes. Solid fruit-forward Oregon pinot, with emphasis on fresh red fruit character; summer in a glass, Willamette Valley style. Good value too. — 2 days ago

Guadalupe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Very tight at first. The nose opens up to red and black berries with an almost Nebbiolo-like rose petal note. Plenty of ripe bing cherries on the palate with a spicy mid palate and firm tannins. The acidity is there, but fruit & tannins are out in front right now. Excellent. — 10 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Been sick for a week, not all the way better, but today is Valentine’s Day and we’re having wine with dinner. Aromatics are alluring with high toned red fruit & a black tea note. The palate shows beautifully ripe red fruit leading to darker spicier notes and a textural tannic grip. Lots to unpack over the years with this as these 16’s will only get better with time. Happy Valentine’s Day! — 13 days ago

Penner-Ash

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Ruby hue with fuchsia rim variation. Medium tearing. Bright red fruit on the nose; notes of cherries, strawberry rhubarb, raspberry, violet, dried rose, wet slate, and potting soil. Delicate leather and dusty notes on the palate. Light and vibrant Willamette Valley Pinot with loads of red fruit characteristics and moderate acidity that dances on the palate. ABV 14.1%. Vintage 2017.

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

These are so young, but completely irresistible right now. Nose is compelling with mixed berry notes and a hint of star anise. The palate shows high toned pomegranate and bright red berries. It has a savory/earthy component with brisk, fresh acid. These are showing great right now. — 7 days ago

One of the best QPR’s around!

Love and Squalor

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Love this one! It is all red fruit with this slight pencil box (not cigar box, it’s that box with your pencils, pens, crayons and gum erasers and maybe a sneaky piece of Bubbilicious). It feels studious and decorous but it likes to chill on a Sunday and day drink. — 14 days ago

Two Messengers Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2012

If you drank this a few years ago and were underwhelmed, then your bottle was likely damaged or too young. This is a gorgeous bottle of PN that is now entering maturity. I've seen a number of comments on this wine. Afaik, Louis-Michel Liger-Belair was the consulting winemaker on this wine made by Mikey Etzel. Anyway, it's glorious. — 2 days ago

Walter Scott

Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Ruby red, lightly to moderately extracted pigment, excellent clarity. Earthy, slightly funky nose initially. Hint of raspberry, good initial acidity, some seed bitterness on finish with length. Needs time to open but well structured wine. Cherry flavor and light-to-moderate skin astringency emerge after 30 minutes. Barnyard stink blows off after two hours. Worth the wait. — 7 days ago

WillaKenzie Estate

Gisèle Pinot Noir 2015

Great PQR at $26. Cherry, touches of raspberry & pomegranate, vanilla, and earthy flavors. For a random purchase, this exceeded expectations. This makes me want to try their other wines I saw. — 2 days ago
