Willamette Pinot Noir

Cristom

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Very perfumed nose has lots of spiced dark cherry fruit, along with a moist gravelly note. When first opened, it was round and polished-feeling in the mouth, but as it aired it tightened up and showed a lot more structure (tannin/acid). Flavors too are very perfumey and long. This is nice now and will age a few more years for sure. — 4 days ago

'Un' Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

The wine I have opened tonight is the 2019 Division "Un" Pinot Noir.

The nos has notes of cranberry, strawberry, cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, clove, forest floor and earth.

On the palate I am getting notes of cherry, strawberry, cranberry, clove, cinnamon, spice, light oak and earthy undertones.

This wine is medium bodied with medium acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins that moves into a medium to medium + ftesh fruit finish. We are on the precipice of another weekend so please stay safe and healthy but enjoy the weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Antica Terra

Antikythera Pinot Noir 2012

Shay A
9.5

This was a real treat to enjoy courtesy of @Bryan Kesting being in town, and since we both share an affinity for Antica Terra wines, he was kind enough to bring a 2012 Antikythera.

In the past month, I’ve had the 2012, 2015 and 2017, and this 2012 shows just how incredible these wines can age. I would say this is probably the most impressive OR Pinot I’ve had to date. So much balance here. On the nose, it is quite expressive with potpourri/red and purple floral notes and herb crusted black cherries. The palate is supremely balanced between the herbal/earth/clay like notes encapsulated by underripe red and black fruits and a kiss of sweetness...kirsch like? The core here nods to burgundy with structure. While I don’t think this gets any better, I do think it will cruise for years and evolve in to a somewhat different wine. Thanks again
@Bryan Kesting for opening this!
