Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Another lovely night a Meritage. Having the French press duck at chef’s corner. 3 month wait list....2 week preparation. Now, onto the wine... great fruit, awesome structure. Nice finish. Crisp. Bright. Cooked berries, light smoke caramels....buttery and supple. Sexy. Another magical night with the Jonczyks at Meritage. — a day ago

Basalt Block Pinot Noir 2012

2012 Willamette Valley beauty. No typical OR funk, rather sweet fruit with a few angles that suggest life left. I like this OR producer a lot. — 10 days ago

Very impressed with this bottling. Perfect for the turkey and yams!
First red for our thanksgiving meal. Light to medium garnet red with bricking. Love the nose with about 30 minutes of air, a bit gamey, smokey, red berries, floral notes and some damp leaves. Light tannins (4/10) and medium acidity (5.5/10). Well balanced with roses, purple flowers, red cherries and some dried herbs. Medium plus finish. Drink till 2020.

Drinking great. Comparable style and quality to a top 10 year old Premier Cru. Cuvée J always needs the most bottle age amongst the Evesham collection. Drink the other bottlings if you want to enjoy it young. — 9 days ago

Evenstad Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2012

Open for 3 hours. Showed well though not as good as I’d hoped. Maybe too young. Classic Evenstad nose and flavor profile. Good Minnesota folk making Oregonian PN! — 9 days ago

Wow....wonder if maybe too young? Did you ask our resident expert, Mr Hennike, whom is the dude on all things Oregonian Pinot?

@Rick Zywotko perhaps a few too many ‘Creek Teas’ on the golf course wrought havoc on our palates 😂

Botanica Pinot Noir 2014

I made the comment that the viscosity of the wine blew me away, and my father rightly pointed out that what I was referring to was surface tension and not viscosity. This is what Thanksgiving is all about. — 17 days ago

Patricia Green Cellars

Lia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Tonight I wanted to honor Patricia Green with opening her 2015 Patricia Green Cellars Lia's Vineyard Pinot Noir. I purchased this wine about a week before her passing. So Patricia this is for you, may you rest in peace and may your winemaking live on forever.

The nose has beautifully aromatic red fruit that makes my mouth water wanting to get into the tasting. There is cherry, strawberry, red raspberry, pomegranate, clove, eucalyptus and nice earth.

On the palate the nose translates over with cherry, red raspberry, cranberry, clove, cola and a dry earthiness.

The wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and medium to + smooth tannins, well integrated and balanced. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and be safe. Here's to you Patricia Green, Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

P-Oui Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

To say that this pinot is the best I've ever had is truly an understatement. It is sultry red with a healthy balance of fruit and spice. The taste is smooth, complex, and it leaves you craving more. Like a jam session from your favorite band. I was truly sad when I finished the bottle. I look forward to having it again. — 15 days ago

Antiquum Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2013

What an attention getter. So plush and expressive. Cherries, puffs of smoke and blueberries on the palate. Soft mid plate, yet noticeable. Building finish of dark berry. — 15 days ago
