Yamhill Carlton, Willamette Valley

Abbott Claim Pinot Noir 2014

Color of light burgundy, bubbly and clear. Nose is beautiful with concentrated strawberry vanilla, like a bomb, plus cigar box/tobacco leaves, sweet and ripe aldehyde, crayon, and a touch of mineral. The nose is very fragrant. Taste is silky with refined yet vivid acidity, coke cola, zesty grapefruit sweetness, more concentrated strawberry, ripe dark skin grapes, black pepper, lots of flavors and salivating. Aftertaste is zest and rind dominant with addition of peppery finish. Reminds me of high quality amarone this time. — 22 days ago

Clandeboye Pinot Noir 2014

‘14 vintage. Good after first opening, better after the next day. Dark berry compote and vanilla dominate...great overall sipper and one of the best QPR out there. — 21 days ago

Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir 2015

Had this at a local wine shop #pinotnoir invite-only tasting event. I’ll have to start checking out #willamettevalley AVAs more now. @Jeff Hasmann ‘s review was spot with from my mental tasting notes; I also noticed nice layers of perfume. I enjoyed talking to the winemaker and proprietor around some of the challenges of the hot 2015 and 2016 weather. — 13 days ago

Carlton Hill Pinot Noir 2008

Still closed. took about an hour to open up somewhat. Feel like the 2008s still have a lot of life left in them. Brooding wines. — 14 days ago
