Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

This might be the last summer type evening on the deck! Picked an enjoyable deck sipper! Fruity with mild spices! Simple wine...happy...not detecting mega purple!
I am practicing restraint...pulled to many wines early over the last several months! 😕
Also trying to adhere to my rule ...if you had wine the night before..do not pull something special! At my age taste buds remain compromised the day after!, 🤔
Who is still getting hummingbirds? Saw two today, sighting down a lot!

When I was growing up in Mn back in the day, bonfires were a regular thing. The best part of fall nights.

Flanerie Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Purple-red, moderately extracted pigment. Aromas of cranberry and blackberry, later barrel tar emerges. Good acid, mouthfeel, rich, almost oily in texture in a good way, raspberry flavor emerges with time, followed by slight skin astringency and bitterness on finish with butter and blackberry (and later lactic) aftertaste. Just a tad alcoholic for what it is, if one were picky, but with food, what’s not to like here? Also ageable given the tannins — 4 days ago

Helioterra

Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Revisiting vintage. Fairly dark for a Rosé but plenty fruity and tasty. Good acid but it’s all about strawberry jam in the mouth with length. Needs a bit of time to settle after opening but aged well for a Rosé, honestly. Some lactic and mineral character on the finish. — 13 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

The Willamette valley partnership. Great pinot, floral, hints of spice and cherry, very polished with great balance. Good to go but will hold its own in a cellar for at the very least another 7 years or so. — 5 days ago

Maison Roy & Fils

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2017

I hope everyone is well? Tonight I have opened the 2017 Maison Roy & Fils Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley Dundee Hills, Oregon made with organic grapes.

On the nose there is bing cherry, raspberry, clove, floral notes, a good funk, mint, wet leaves and forest floor.

On the palate there is bing cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, spice, vanilla, violet and forest floor.

This wine is medium bodied with medium to + acidity and medium to + fine tannins that seamlessly move into a long tart berry finish. Please everyone as we move into this weekend stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Extended Tirage Willamette Valley Sparkling Blend 2002

Okay...I’m a believer! Wow, this wine exceeded all expectations. Medium gold in the glass, just enough acidity to keep things interesting, and on the downslope for its effervescence. But the swirl of fruit flavors was intoxicating... fig, persimmon, kiwi, ripe golden pineapple and a melange of citrus. Fun! — 13 days ago

The Marigny Carbonic Maceration Pinot Gris 2019

One more for the summer. The prettiest Pinot Gris I ever saw.

Blood orange, cedar strips, and incense. Flavors of tart spiced citrus carry us right into the next season.

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Excellent value and nearly everything you want in an entry level Oregon Pinot noir. A bit darker and more robust than I expected, and at 13.7% labeled abv. But quite balanced with darker red berries, some spice / chocolate notes, and slightly noticeable tannins. Lacking just a bit of acid on the finish for the freshness I’d love. — 10 days ago

Kelley Fox Wines

Barbie Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Blanc 2019

Another winner from Kelley Fox. Pale straw color with slight hint of green. A little bit of peach on the nose. Palate is wonderfully pure with the sensation of rainwater, with lip smacking citrus, apricot, underripe melon and sea salt, some vanilla but not at all marked by wood. There is a creamy roundness to the body that adds dimension to the piquancy of the attack — 12 days ago

Panther Creek

Schindler Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

This is a terrific wine. Very Aloxe-Corton. Surprisingly firm for 6-yrs. old. Nose takes some air to develop, but then shows bright black cherry, loads of minerally gravel, a bit of spice and a lick of licorice. Very intense in the mouth, but in a very balanced frame. The intensity contrasts with a delicate mouthfeel. Nice acids and tannins barely noticeable. This will certainly improve over the next 2-3 years. — 5 days ago
