Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Smell: ripe red fruit. Cherries. Liquorice. Vanilla. Earth and oak. Taste: very smooth, round on the palate, taste red fruit like raspberry and cherry. Decent body for a Pinot (still light). Nice complexity on the palate, long finish. Very dry. Velvety. I really liked this wine. Will definitely get again. — 9 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2019

Pale lemon in color with a green hue.

On the nose citrus, vegetables, herbs, green apples, earth, minerals, and grapefruit juice.

Medium bodied with medium acidity. Crisp and refreshing with long legs.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, lemons, bitter herbs, earth and vegetables.

Tangy finish with limes and almonds.

This young Pinot Gris from Oregon is easy drinking and tangy, with a soft mouthfeel. Surprisingly good out of a can.

Earthier on the nose than on the palate. As it opens up, grapefruit notes show up on the nose, and nicer with some airtime, so be patient.

I had an older vintage of this wine, and it definitely is better with some age. I wonder how it would age in a can, though. For now, it is lemony and refreshing. A nice sipper by the pool.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with fresh seafood like oysters.

Aged in neutral French Oak barrels and stainless steel for 11 months.

13.3% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$8.

Cuvée O Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2008

Thought this was an old world wine, but just a Willamette Pinot with some bottle age on it - a truly enjoyable wine and evening. — 14 days ago

Dijon Blocks Pinot Noir 2016

More youthful than expected, the nose is a little reserved but show classic notes of dark cherry, moist gravel, baking spice, and crushed rock. Tight and still exhibiting some youthful tannin in the mouth, it shows fairly Burgundian flavor profile, with fruit and clean earth in equal measure. Finish shows a slight bitterness as it recedes, but it’s not so much that it detracts. This needs some time in the cellar still. Better in 2-4 years I bet. — 13 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Medium garnet color and light purple rim. Medium to light acidity and enough tanin to fill out the mouthfeel. Flavors are more dark stone fruit than berry, and a little hard for me to distinguish. I am enjoying the very nice finish that’s got some staying power. Darn, the flavors, what the heck is it? It’s more nuanced than explosive. I’d be interested to hear of anyone else has a thought on this wine. I like it. Cheers? Edit: @Sipping Fine Wine had it bang on - Strawberry! Yes, stewed strawberry all the way. Strawberry jam. Yum. — 19 days ago

La Combe Verte Chardonnay 2019

Too weary to write proper notes. To my mind, one of the greatest producers in Oregon. — 3 days ago

Oregon Winery that flys under the radar; QPR wines for sure! Cheers

Lingua Franca

Bunker Hill Chardonnay 2016

Really compelling. Powerful, complex, well integrated. Great citrus snap up front weaving in juicy orchard fruit, green herbs (is it chervil? I think it might be!) marine elements and finishes with a dollop of rich buttery lees — 15 days ago

Allusions of old gun smoke circa 1776?

Beaux Frères

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Raspberry, cherry, cranberry, baking spices, medium plus acidity. The wine was a bit off on the first day but when I opened up again on day 2 the wine was singing. The 2017 should be sat down for a few years boy it’s a lovely wine. — 19 days ago
