Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Over the weekend we opened the 2018 David Paige Wines Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. From Carlton, Oregon and a blend of grapes from Chehalem Mountains, Ribbon Ridge and Eola-Amity Hills.

On the nose there was strawberry, cranberry, cherry, clove, mushroom, hibiscus, vanilla and earth.

On the palate there is tart cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, mushroom, vanilla and earth.

This is a medium bodied wine with medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that moves easily into a long red fruit earthy finish. A very nice expression of Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley. Have a wonderful week ahead and my it be positive and productive. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Hyland Vineyard Riesling 2017

Elegant dry Riesling from Oregon. Candies citrus on the nose, but dry and with a somewhat bitter aftertaste on the palate. Medium bodied and quite in the mouth. Somewhat like an Alsatian Riesling, but really its own thing. — 8 days ago

Résonance Vineyard

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Tasted blind and kept thinking it was Barbaresco, save for the very integrated soft tannins. Huge compliment. Very tertiary, red fruit is in the background with lots of organic earth, lifted nose, so much complexity. Beautiful!! — a day ago
