Vintner's Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Lush #willamettevalley #pinotnoir with a muted cherry compote and faint baking spice nose. It’s on the palate that this PN greets you with an outpouring of stewed cherry wrapped in a luscious texture plus enticing acidity ending in delicate tannins. While there isn’t the fantastic aromatics you expect from greater examples from the region, it’s has substantial QPR for ~$11 on sale at Total Wine. — 9 days ago

The Eyrie Vineyards

Dundee Hills Pinot Gris 2018

A floral forward nose leads to over ripe citrus and under ripe tropical fruit. As it opens up it shows heft and complexity in terms of parmesan rind and white peach fuzz. Just a bit of white mushroom rounds out this exquisitely expressive example of pinot gris from the infamous winery that brought the grape to the states. — 2 days ago

Evenstad Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

2014 vintage. Bright red and blue fruits with good balance and a very nice finish. Seems youthful for its age (stored at cellar temperature). Drink now or hold for a year or more, assuming proper storage. — 4 days ago

Belle Pente

Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir 2017

Just love this wine, BUT NOT ANYMORE, READ END! Belle Pente (bell-pont') means "beautiful slope" - for their 70 acre hillside vineyard & winery site in Willamette Valley. Bright Ruby with aromas of red fruits, herb spices & hints of blossom notes. On the palate strawberry & cherry flavors, slight sweet undertones, herb notes & smooth tannins. Well balanced on a long finish ending with mineral herb notes. Great value, but THEY LEAVE CORK EXPOSED, I WILL NO LONGER DRINK WINE WITH CONTAMINATED CORKS. PROTECT YOUR CORK, WAX COSTS PENNIES! — 3 days ago

Purple Hands

Holstein Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Founded by Cody and Marque Wright, yes that family of the great Ken Wright Pinot’s  very nice small production Pinot, 600 cases, from 115/777 clones. Medium+ Ruby, nose is a bit closed, with aromas of blue and red fruits with an array of spices, clove, tar and wet earth. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cranberry with notes of tobacco, citrus, floral and earthy tones. Fine tannins, lively acidity, long ending with fruit, spice, mineral and earthy notes. Should age a bit. — 3 days ago

Lange Winery

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2019

An awesome new bottling, the 2019 ‘Reserve’ Pinot Gris by Jesse Lange shows off a wonderful viscosity with bright pear and green apple flavors that meld with shades of nutmeg infused sourdough bread and lighter lemon zest tones. The range here imparted is seriously good. While delightful in its youth, the 2019 ‘Reserve’ Pinot Gris will provide drinking enjoyment over the next seven plus years, picking up earthy tones as it ages. Drink 2020-2027- 92 — 15 days ago
