Ransom Pinot Gris Eola Amity 2012 Product #27740 (In Stock)
Ransom Pinot Gris Eola Amity 2012 Ransom Pinot Gris Eola Amity 2012

Very little made (just 232 cases) of this organically grown, naturally made, Piont Gris from Cattrall and Temperance Hill vineyards.  A rich, deeply-textured, take on Oregon Pinot Gris that shows the complexity of whole cluster pressing, two months on the lees, and just the right hint of residual sugar. Aromas and flavors of heirloom apples, tart pear, mountain flowers and brioche bread.  Creamy and rich on the palate but then juicy and refreshing on the mouthwatering finish where lemon custard and browned pear notes linger.

"Ample and subtly creamy, this still offers more than enough refreshing primary juiciness and an abundance of ripe peach as if close to the core: subtly piquant and salty in a manner that really stimulates the salivary glands. A garland of bittersweet floral perfume and additionally invigorating twist of lime peel add to the appeal of this outstanding value that should prove highly versatile until at least 2015."Wine Advocate 89 points

Matello Whistling Ridge White 2012 Product #27589 (In Stock)
Matello Whistling Ridge White 2012 Matello Whistling Ridge White 2012

A unique blend of 40% Riesling, 35% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Blanc, and 5% Gewurztraminer that, somehow, is even more than the sum of its parts! Complex aromatics of white flowers, lavender, crushed herb and citrus zest lead to a zippy mouthful of flowers, stones, pear, citrus and spice.  As it warms up a bit, you'll find notes of white raspberry and cherry, too, with pink grapefruit on the finish.  Zesty and fun.

Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2011 Product #28072 (In Stock)
Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2011 Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2011

The cool 2011 Willamette Valley vintage shows through clear as a bell in this bright, crisp,  no-oak, Chardonnay.  Two blocks of Dijon clones were hand harvested in early November and then fermented and aged in tank with no malolactic fermentation.  The result is a wonderfully fresh and elegant Chardonnay, redolent of pineapple, crisp green apple and mango fruit with zippy accents of ginger and  lemongrass.  The richness of the pure Chardonnay fruit is perfectly balanced by the bright acids on the long, mouthwatering, finish.  Focused, pure, and very delicious.

Ken Wright Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2011 375ml Product #26569 (In Stock)
Ken Wright Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2011 375ml Ken Wright Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2011 375ml

Wine Advocate has suggested that Shea is the Willamette Valley’s one potential “superstar” vineyard and Ken makes the benchmark wine from this famous site.  Ken uses fruit from three different blocks in the vineyard, two planted to Dijon 114 and one to Dijon 777 clones. Shea Vineyard gives black/red fruit - especially blueberry - but with more spice and earth than other Yamhill-Carlton wines.  Always a fine marriage of ripe fruit and juicy, fresh, texture, this usually wants a few years in cellar to show its best. Ken pretty much made the reputation of this vineyard, and it's always one of his most powerful, concentrated, wines.

Ken Wright Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2012 Product #28003 (In Stock)
Ken Wright Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2012 Ken Wright Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2012

In the big, ripe, 2009 vintage, Ken Wright did something he hadn't done in years - made a Pinot Noir by blending wine from different vineyards.  It had been a big crop and he had some barrels too soft to fit with his single vineyard wines, and making an "entry level" blend seemed more attractive than selling the wine in bulk. We got some, you tried it, and the 2009 Willamette Valley Pinot flew out of the store.

Ken did the same thing in the cooler, more challenging, 2010 and 2011 harvests, but we thought the results were less impressive.  Now in the great 2012 vintage – one Ken ranks among the greatest he’s ever worked – the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is back and firing on all cylinders.  It’s a blend of barrels from some of Oregon’s most famous vineyards:  Abbott Claim, Canary Hill, Carter, Freedom Hill, Guadalupe, McCrone, Meredith Mitchell, Nysa and Savoya.  Like the 2009, it’s rich and expressive, bursting with crushed berry fruit, rose petal, smoke and fresh earth notes.  We suspect there’s a little press wine in the mix, giving the wine a dash of fine-grained tannic support and making it very food friendly.  If you love Ken’s style and have some of his 2012 single vineyard wines, leave ‘em alone for 5 years and drink this now!
