Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml

Another classic release for this pioneer of Oregon's Chehalem mountains. A bit richer and broader than in some releases - 2013 was warm before the late rains - with a pretty note of smoky oak.

"Fresh and expressive, light-footed and generous, with cherry, plum and apricot flavors, coming together smoothly on the open-textured finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

St Innocent Pinot Noir Willamette Villages Cuvee 2014 Product #31271 (In Stock)
St Innocent Pinot Noir Willamette Villages Cuvee 2014 St Innocent Pinot Noir Willamette Villages Cuvee 2014

Always one of the greatest values in Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, the 2014 is the best in years, perhaps better than the Wine Spectator 92 point 2008.  In 2014 the vineyard sources read like a who’s who of great sites:  Zenith, Vitae Spring, Temperance Hill, Freedom Hill, Momtazi Vineyard and even the legendary “Grand Cru” Shea Vineyard.  A warm fermentation and gentle pump-overs extract richness and give the wine a velvet feel.  A year in mostly used oak rounds off the edges and adds just a touch of subtle spice.

The result is a sophisticated, velvety, and layered wine that puts many more expensive bottlings to shame!  You’ll find loads of fresh cherry, dark berry, ground spice, and subtle anise aromas and generous flavors of wild berries and cherries, spice and fresh flowers.  The wine envelops your palate with deeply earthy richness, but stays light and pure and fresh through a finished laced with just-picked fruit, spice, and fine tannins.  Beautiful right now through 2021 with everything from white meats to meaty fish (salmon, tuna) and rich lentil or bean dishes.  Delicious value!

"A sensational value, this blends fruit from a half-dozen vineyards that carry the winery's vineyard designates. Soft and appealing flavors mix citrus, plum and berry in a juicy, wide open, flat out delicious bottle. The fruit is the star, although a year in 9% new French oak adds a nice touch of toast."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

William Hatcher Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013 Product #31683 (In Stock)
William Hatcher Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013 William Hatcher Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013

A really good Pinot Noir, showcasing the warmth that had everyone so excited about the 2013 growing season before a typhoon dumped 5-15 inches of rain on the Willamette Valley while folks were waiting (or starting) to pick.  The winery doesn’t release a lot of detail about grape sources and winemaking, but I’m sure there’s some volcanic material here along with a judicious amount of new French oak.  If you like your Pinot with a touch of flesh, some smoky accents, a good dose of spice to the dark cherry fruit, and a bit of velvet to the texture then this is for you.

"Deep red. Smoke- and spice-accented redcurrant and cherry scents, with a spicy nuance building in the glass. Nervy red berry and bitter cherry flavors show good clarity, with suggestions of allspice and rose adding complexity. Closes with repeating spiciness, gentle tannic grip and very good length, leaving a succulent herbal note behind."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

"Light and sleek, this version shows good transparency to its ripe black cherry and blackberry flavors, which linger with gentle meaty notes on the polished finish. Drink now through 2021. 368 cases made."Wine Spectator 91 points

Belle Pente Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014 Product #31696 (In Stock)
Belle Pente Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014 Belle Pente Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014

A spectacular, rich and deep, lip-smacking, bottle of delicious Pinot Noir.  Sure, you can cellar this if you want to.  But we're a bit skeptical you can wait.  Better than the rating.

"Vivid red. Mineral- and spice-laced aromas of fresh red berries and rose, joined by a hint of blood orange that builds in the glass. Clean and nervy on entry, then deeper and broader in the midpalate, offering energetic black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors complemented by a sweet touch of floral pastilles. Supple tannins build slowly on the sappy, penetrating finish, which hangs on with strong, spicy persistence."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points
