For a 7-year old Oregon Pinot, there are a couple of unusual things here. First, zero sediment. Second, the wine still seems quite tightly-knit and youthful. But it’s quite nice. Nose is spot-on sous-bois and dark cherry, sweet baking spice, and a rooty cola note. Seems youthful in the mouth, with nice concentration and rocking acids. On the leaner but linear side, but with a lengthy finish that sports a slight bitter note at the end. Was great with Chicken Dijon.

A small, family-owned winery, owned by Antony Beck a native South African wine producer who began Angela Estate in 2006. Antony created the winery as a celebration of his wife, Angela and their five children. Made with estate fruit, aromas of fruit, floral & spice. Juice flavors of raspberry and strawberry with licorice and spicy pepper notes. Fine tannins on lingering finish ending with bits of cacao. Give this a few more in the cellar.

Great Pinot, not huge like Sonoma Coast Pinot put a little more fruit than great Burgundy. Great Spice, Pinot body, light red fruit, some earth. I think this is a fantastic wine, still true to the varietal style with Oregon twist. Top Notch

This is rockin'. Guess I'm going back to an Oregon Pinot phase.

Opened yesterday. Not bad. On the nose: cranberry, baking spice, strawberry. On the palate: good acidity, sweet cranberry and some slight stemmy notes. Good density and soft tannin on the finish. Definitely OR PN, but not particularly exciting.

Probably my favorite Pinot from 2013. Ken Wright knows how to make wine. Light fruit and silky texture.

WONDERFUL NOSE! Not as mushroom as promised. But, incredibly earthy for a Pinot.
