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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 12 days ago

Pale salmon color with aromas of fruit and floral notes. Fermented bone dry in stainless steel, on the palate flavors of strawberry and cherry, some citrus notes wrapped in vivid acidity. Smooth character, not overpowering, medium finish ending with a floral mineral character. — 8 days ago
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!! — 8 days ago
