Vista Hills Pinot Gris Treehouse Estate 2014 Product #29500 (In Stock)
Vista Hills Pinot Gris Treehouse Estate 2014 Vista Hills Pinot Gris Treehouse Estate 2014

On opening, aromas of golden delicious apple, apple skin, nectarine, Myer lemon peel and waxy white flower.  On the palate, the fruit turns spicier with pear, apple, and honeydew melon at the center and a hint of nuttiness.   The finish pops with bright, vibrant, acidity that lifts the green pear, Acacia flower, and lime pith flavors across a long, dry, finish.  Leaves your mouth watering and green melon and spice flavors lingering.  Drinks like a cross between Pinot Blanc – crisp, bright, green apple-laced – and bone dry Riesling – aromatic, a touch floral, and full of juicy acids.

Give it a few more months – or even a short decant now – and the wine opens beautifully.  The fruit get richer, and riper, picking up a more golden hue and a hint of hazelnut without losing the floral and Myer lemon accents.  The texture gets fleshier and finish more broad and rich, too, but the bright green apple acids and touch of lime zest bitterness keep things fresh and very drinkable. At all times, it’s a delicious match for everything from ham to salmon to seafood to salads or more.  Or just for  sipping on a pretty Spring afternoon.

Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee 2013 Product #28814 (In Stock)
Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee 2013 Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee 2013

John Grochau’s easy-drinking, early release, Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee always gives us a nice preview of the vintage to come, and his 2013 leaves us feeling very excited indeed.  John’s hands-off approach to winemaking (“Don’t screw it up” is his motto) and light use of new oak (just 10% here) lets classic Pinot cherry fruit and accents of cranberry, fresh earth, flower petal, and spice shine through clear as a bell.  The fruit shows some of the dark richness found in Willamette’s last hot vintage (2009), but with better freshness and a light, silky, texture that makes this wonderfully easy to drink.  Fantastic value in handcrafted Willamette Valley Pinot Noir!

Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013 Product #29547 (In Stock)
Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013 Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013

From four different blocks of Vista Hills’ Dundee Hills estate, this is a great example of the charm and richness you’ll find in the best 2013 Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs (and a screaming value, too!).  The estate’s Jory soils easily shed the big dose of late-September rains, allowing the fruit to process the extra water and hang until full ripeness (at 13.3% abv) in early October.  The grapes where hand harvested, sorted twice – in the vineyard and again at the winery – and then aged 14 months in all used French oak to produce 818 cases of lovely, pure, Pinot.

You’ll get 2013’s warm ripeness on the nose, with spicy, earthy, scents of rich black cherry, cranberry, fresh flowers and a hint of blood orange.  On the palate the wine is surprisingly rich and weighty, but with fine transparency and freshness, too.  Complex flavors of cherry, candied cranberry, orange zest, and strawberry are framed by notes of spice, smoke, and earth.  The sweet fruit flavors carry on through the gentle finish where you’ll get a burst of cranberry, cherry and blood orange supported by fresh acids and soft, supple, tannins.  This is a LOT of wine for the money.

Evesham Wood Blanc Du Puits Sec 2014 Product #29570 (In Stock)
Evesham Wood Blanc Du Puits Sec 2014 Evesham Wood Blanc Du Puits Sec 2014

This blend of 85% Pinot Gris, almost 15% Gewurztraminer, and dashes of Traminer and Riesling shows just how much Oregon's climate can excel with these traditionally cool-climate varieties. The classic Gewurztraminer notes of rose petals and lychee are tempered by the bright acidity and minerality of the Pinot Gris. A delicious standalone sipper that would also be fantastic with pork.

Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml Product #29647 (In Stock)
Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml

An Oregon classic, with 40% whole-cluster fruit used in the great 2012 vintage.

"The 2012 Mt Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir comes from vines located above the winery augmented by purchased fruit from notable vineyards. It contains around 40% whole-cluster fruit (one of the central tenets at Cristom), and only undergoes one racking during its 12 months in barrel: one just before filtration and then just before bottling. It has an attractive tertiary/woodland-scented bouquet with dried rose petal notes coming through, much less fruit driven than many other 2012 Pinot Noirs. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. It is quite sappy in style with crisp black fruit rather than red, leading to a focused, slightly austere, tobacco-tinged and saline finish. I would afford this a year in bottle for this "classic" style of Oregon Pinot."Wine Advocate 89 points

Haden Fig Chardonnay Willamette Valley Juliette 2012 Product #29561 (In Stock)
Haden Fig Chardonnay Willamette Valley Juliette 2012 Haden Fig Chardonnay Willamette Valley Juliette 2012

Erin Nuccio made just 3.5 barrels of this elegant, Burgundy-style, Chardonnay in the great 2012 Oregon harvest and named it for his daughter, Juliette.  Barrel fermented and aged for 18 months on the lees (but with no stirring), it opens with complex aromas of green apple, toasted nuts, and a hint of butter.  Then, you'll find layered flavors of citrus, lemon curd, Granny Smith, and hazelnut.  Creamy textured but crisp and nutty on the vivid finish.  Give it a big swirl or even a short decant and watch it unfurl!

Evesham Wood Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013 Evesham Wood Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013

A pretty label for a very pretty wine, especially in the attractive 2013 vintage.  Plenty of ripeness here, with bright cherry and raspberry fruit lifted by juicy acids and framed by notes of forest floor, spice, and mint. The structure is elegant, without an ounce of excess weight, and the aromas and flavors wonderfully pure and persistent. A touch of spice comes up on the supple finish.
