Drinking US pinots this week. First up is from Ehren Jordan’s project in Willamette Valley. Impressive Pinot here - great winemaking. Fruit from Eola and Chehalem. 30% whole cluster + 15 % new oak. Ripe cherry, crushed flowers, and hints of mocha on the nose lead to pomegranate and earthiness on the palate. Smooth tannins and savory mouthfeel. Nicely done. 2018 vintage on Mar 20, 2020

Offers more transparency and dynamics than Swan but feels slightly loose.
