Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Harper Voit

Antiquum Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Drew Voit is knocking it, I find that his wines need time in the bottle to really understand them. While in a great spot more time will only aid in its development. Has a ever so sweet side balanced by savory notes. This particularly vineyard displays definition and highlights the details. Great offering. — 3 months ago

Domaine Serene

Winery Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Medium ruby red color and clear. Cherry fruit, wet leaves, cedar and slight smoke on the nose. Lingers a bit of vanilla and spice. A dark cherry and strawberry fruit taste, but subtle As it sits on the tongue notes of spice, pepper and cedar come out and finishes off with tea and a minerally taste. Drinks smooth and full bodied Pinot. The flavors are layered making it very enjoyable to drink on a nice fall weather evening right in our backyard. — 4 days ago

Panther Creek

Lazy River Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Very old world in style. Nose has lots of cracked river stones and forest underbrush, cherry and rose petal notes. Concentrated flavors bit in a compact and medium bodied style. Still a fair amount of tannin, but it’s soft. Very nice acids and a long, savory finish. At 6 years still seems relatively youthful. — 15 days ago

Anderson Family Vineyard

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2013

Bought at winery. Purple-red, light to moderately extracted pigment, very good clarity. Black currant, leather and spearmint notes in nose. Blackberry and cola-ish flavors with menthol-spearmint on finish. Light seed and skin tannins, corresponding bitterness and astringency. Cool climate flavor with great depth of flavors. Yummy-licious almost captures it. Paired exceedingly well with a baseball playoff game on TV and a wild mushroom pizza from a well-known Seattle pizzeria. — 5 days ago

Shea Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir 2016

Evocative of a young, high-end Cote de Nuits, on the richer end of Burgundian. So wonderfully floral and laden with spice, smooth as all get out. Firm but delicate and fine tannins linger forever. Loved it. Never bothered to move to my typical Mastro’s Napa Cab. — 2 days ago

Evening Land Vineyards

Seven Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

A clear, medium garnet color with a slight purple rim. A really pleasant nose of slightly muted dried cherry, aromatic herbs, rose petals, and fresh tea. This is probably my favorite Pinot even though it’s the entry level offering from Evening Land but this is just so damn good. Everything that I need and want in a Pinot Noir. Sly and delicate, this never turns the volume up too loud. Light on its feet with a nice deftness, I almost, almost, want to say Burgundian. As clean and polished as this initially shows, there is a beautiful streak of slight funkiness that takes it to another level. Raspberry jam, moist earth, gravel, and cherries on the palate. I love this wine. I could drink it everyday. — 5 days ago

Chapter 24 Vineyards

Last Chapter Pinot Noir 2017

This was introduced to me by one of the Somm’s at Jean George, a project in Oregon made by the famous Louis Michel from Liger Belair. A wine of balance & complexity that when tasted blind I thought was from Burgundy. Would love to find this! — 13 days ago

Bethel Heights

Casteel Estate Pinot Noir 2017

W&S Top 100. It was a test to round it up with an Oregon Pinot. Refreshing. Vibrant. Wish I had some duck. Perhaps some potatoes. I need to visit Oregon for a tasting. Perhaps a month would do. — 2 days ago
