Gramercy Cellars

Reserve Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The 2015 'Reserve' Cabernet Sauvignon from Gramercy Cellars is a stunning wine that can benefit from a two plus hour decant at this point in its development. It shows an inky color, unveiling layered black fruits, smoky and earthy tones and Asian spices on the nose. The mouthfeel is sumptuous, as this silky wine glides through the mid-palate. Cigar ash, blackberry compote, black tea, Asian spice and mocha flavors all marvelously combine in the glass. This is a truly fantastic wine which should continue to cellar well for decades but it is highly gratifying in the glass right now. Drink 2019-2035- 95 — 6 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Stunning and better than most winery’s top bottlings, the 2017 ‘Willamette Valley’ Pinot Noir is another sensational wine made by one of the most underrated winemakers in North America, Brian Marcy. The nose is seductive and highly perfumed with rose petals, guava puree, cigar ash and suggestions of peat moss that all build in the glass. The wine shows off a downright sexy texture, showing a great combination of weight and minerality. Guava puree, red raspberry cordial, blood orange zest and white truffle flavors all dance on the palate. A seriously good wine, this will continue to cellar well over the next fifteen years.
