Willamette Valley Vineyards

Estate Pinot Noir 2017

Eh...it is solidly Pinot but gives me a bit of pause. Different flavor sensations hit but not in a way that makes a full arc. Maybe it needs a couple years? Fruit, ash, then just the cherry acid bop in then oak sensations aka vanilla hop into the pool. It’s a tasty wine. It is complex and structurally relatively balanced but there is something that I still find a tiny bit jarring. This has the potential maybe it just needs a year or so? But I like well enough and want to try other vintages... — 3 days ago

Prelude Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Dark garnet color. Smoke and spice on the nose. Palate shows dark cherry character with some black tea on the mid palate & through the finish. Good power & intensity. Very nice. — 9 days ago

Varnum

Old Vine Willamette Valley Riesling 2015

Pale golden yellow. Tropical fruit, pine and wood spice notes in nose. Pine and spice with tropical fruit finish in mouth, semi dry, decent acidity. Mild skin astringency with minerality in aftertaste. Small producer worth seeking out. This bottle was a gift from my brother. I can’t find anything on the internet about this vintage though. Obscurity has its privileges... — 16 days ago

Shea Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Very nice Oregon Pinot from Shea vineyards. A balanced blend of cherry, raspberry and earth notes. Minerality from the volcanic Seabed floor and a long finish. 2014 has aged well. — 19 hours ago

Cameron Winery

Cuvée L & E Abbey Ridge Pinot Noir 2002

This is lovely but a little light and overly candied. Good acidity and not much tannic bite but the nose doesn’t have the depth and savoriness of the best Camerons — 5 days ago

St Innocent Winery

Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

A notch below the Momtazi Vineyard wine but very good still. Violet and dark fruit aromas. Black cherry, boysenberry, plum, smoke, cedar, and hibiscus on the palate. A solid Oregon pinot. Very enjoyable. — 8 days ago
