Ruby hue with fuchsia rim variation. Medium tearing. Bright red fruit on the nose; notes of cherries, strawberry rhubarb, raspberry, violet, dried rose, wet slate, and potting soil. Delicate leather and dusty notes on the palate. Light and vibrant Willamette Valley Pinot with loads of red fruit characteristics and moderate acidity that dances on the palate. ABV 14.1%. Vintage 2017.

Ruby hue, medium concentration. Pink rim variation. Baskets full of fresh red fruit, like raspberries, strawberries, and cherries, and baking spice notes, herbal and vegetal influences, and tobacco leaf. A light body and elegant finish. Nicely balanced on the palate with strong fruit character and moderate acidity. 13% ABV. 2017 Vintage. #ponzivineyards #marisa #luisa #sisterlylove #willamettevalley #newworldwine #pinotnoir #pleasepassthepinot — 4 months ago
Fascinating #willamettevalley white from #apollonivineyards. I had the distinct pleasure of being served this wine from the winemaker/owner Alfredo Apolloni, who made the trip for a tasting event at a local Houston wine bar. Alfredo was humble and engaging. He walked me through this wine, choosing to age 25% in acacia wood barrels so there’s a really compelling white citrus blossom aroma mingling with grippy tannins, hints of vanilla but no malolactic fermentation to preserve freshness and acidity. The acid bite is offset with forward fruit on this #pinotgris — 2 months ago
#leftcoastcellars delivers Scrumptious and full flavored for #pinotnoirs. “Slurpable” as described by @Nicolette Hill! Loaded with red fruit flavor cherry 🍒 and raspberries; great with any meal. #willamette #willamettevalley #oregon #oregonwines #latitude45 #dijonclone we enjoyed this so very much! — 7 months ago
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.

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. — 2 months ago
Black currant, forest floor, button mushroom, cranberry. Not only do I love the people who make this wine, I love everything Cristom does- time after time this wine never disappoints. I want to drink this with every holiday meal! #oregonpinotnoir @cristomwine #cristom #willamettevalley — a year ago
