Domaine Drouhin

RoseRock Pinot Noir 2015

9.3

Such strength from a #pinotrocks truely #oregon in color and structure. Light caramel and chocolate wafers entrance my smell perception and then they are supported by lovely acidity and a long finish. Excellent. Tasted it side by side with Domaine Drouhin Dundee Hills and I much preferred this to that — 5 months ago

Terrific wine. The Dundee cuvées are certainly more difficult to assess when they are young, but well worth the wait.

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Boysenberry, little currants; crunchy. Fresh and full of life. Exactly what to expect from $20 Oregon Pinot. Much better in ‘16 than in blazing hot years like ‘14 or ‘15. #oregon #willamette #pinotnoir — a year ago

Stoller Vineyards Pinot Noir 2014

Nuances of raspberry, leafy earth, rosewood, and lavender. Medium plus mouthfeel that exudes dense, ripe plum and scorched raspberries, with a soft note of rosemary, rose petal, nettle and tar. Porcine notes. Excellent stuff! #pinotnoir #Boedecker #pinot #pn #singlevineyard #burg #oregonpinotcamp #oregon #Dundee — 5 months ago

Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir

2013 vintage. Tulips, ripe cherries in tree, raspberry essence. Holly and spearmint apparently had a winter tryst under a spray of delicate cranberry blossom. Pickled strawberry and dry pinecone emerge from a smoky cave, there is a citrus whiff, from a nighttime grove ringed by oregano. Light mouthfeel with electric potential. Subtleties abound. Cranberry meets rolled, red apple skin, chewed leather, applewood chips, bitter cherry, dried rose petals and smoky, red saffron. #pinotnoir #oregonpinotnoir #sheavineyards #oregon #pinotparadise #noir #noirs #boedecker #pn #pinotweknow — a year ago

Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay 2016

Old-fashioned Burgundian style. Plenty of acidity, oak doesn’t dominate, moderate alcohol. Lots of yellow fruits and brioche. Finishes long, mineral and refreshing. #oregon #chardonnay #yamhillcarlton — a year ago

Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay 2017

Toasty, oaky and rich, but not overdone. Low alcohol, in the 13% range. Dead ringer for a good Mercurey or Rully. #troussechemise #oregon #yamhillcarlton #chardonnay — 7 months ago

Sass Winery

Unfiltered Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Sass is always one of my favorites for the price but I hadn't tried this vintage yet. As always, the fruit is ultra bright and expressive. There's no doubt about it, this has that natural wine vibe to it. Slight VA makes the aroma explode out of the glass... raspberry, blackberry and sour cherry. It's very lifted and lively. Slightly hot and the fruit is maybe a touch astringent. Structurally, this wine lacks delineation but it's delicious anyways. It's a different take and a more honest wine than most in the price bracket. Last time I talked to Jerry Sass he told me he was using less and less so2. Very cool.

Hyland Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Great tension between freshness and dark, concentrated elements. Boysenberry, blackberry. Just enough new barrel. 2016 so much more alive than the hot ‘14s and ‘15s. #oregon #pinotnoir — a year ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Meo-Camuzet’s Oregon collaboration. Dark fruits, sap. Noticeably oaky. Not as high-toned or polished as Drouhin’s Oregon PN, but satisfying and very good. #meocamuzet #oregon #pinotnoir — a year ago
