Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Wednesday night and I have opened the 2016 Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

On the nose there is beautiful fruit, cherry, cranberry, raspberry, clove, matchbook, smoke, wet leaves and earth.

On the palate there is bing cherry, cranberry, raspberry, clove, spice, hibiscus and earth.

This wine is medium bodied and a smooth mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that moves into a medium to long spicy dark fruit finish. Only two more days left to the work week and then the weekend. Stay safe and have a great rest of the week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

La Combe Verte Pinot Noir 2018

Quite dark. 13.5%. Plummy nose. Seems not overly complex at first. Nice 🍒 notes marble dust. Tart astringent - will benefit from 1-2 more years in the bottle. Plenty of acid. A quality Pinot at a great price point. I like it but it’s not a must have. — 7 days ago

Gestalt Block Pinot Noir 2015

Lovely dark ruby color with notes of black cherry, tobacco, and baking spices. Nice weight on the palate with interesting intensity and persistence on the finish. Prob a bit early, but pleasant dinner companion in Willamette Valley holiday getaway. — 9 days ago

Patricia's Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

From the first taste of the 2016 Patricia’s Cuvée Pinot Noir, I knew I had found a new favorite! I was given the bottle as a part of a gift set and didn’t open it right way. I expected a decent wine (because of the person that sent it), but I was blown away! The fruity aromatics, the wonderful pepper note that leaves your pallet at the peak, with a hint of the oak cask. All I can say is if you are a Pinot Noir fan, splurge a little and get this bottle. — 3 days ago

Bow and Arrow

Le Chenaie Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017

As someone who is often quick to dismiss Sauvignon Blanc, I’m very happy to report that Bow & Arrow is making one of the most memorable bottlings I’ve tasted anywhere. Showing it’s attributes the way a good showdog might, knowing what she has.

And that’d be lychee extract, sweet tangerine, coconut, pineapple, sweet sake, vanilla, dulce de ledge, and butterfinger. Extraordinarily deep and ripe and all in wonderful restraint.

Penner-Ash

Zena Crown Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2014

9.3

Closing the night with Penner-Ash. Had this upon its release at the winery. It shows nice evolution...rounder, elegant with softer spice.

The body is ruby, ripe & full. The wine is brooding on the nose & palate. It’s a well extracted, sweeter version of burgundy. Ripe, ruby; dark cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, poached strawberries & hints of floral blueberries & raspberries. The spice is dark with a little heat, soft; clove, nutmeg & vanilla, mixed dark berry cola, black licorice, river stones, limestone, some crushed rocks, moist clay, dark, moist, turned earth, some fresh herbs & eucalyptus, pine tree sap, dark, melted chocolate with fresh & slightly candied; dark, red, blue flowers set in violets. The acidity is round and like a cool shower on a warm day. The long finish is ruby, ripe, well balanced, polished that falls into dark spices on the persistent long set.

Helioterra

Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

A decidedly garnet red rosé, excellent clarity. Slight notes of strawberry and flowers in nose. Strawberry and a touch of cranberry flavor with lees creaminess in finish, slight skin astringency. Slightly tart but fruity, mineral aftertaste. An above average dry rosé. — 17 days ago
