Rascal Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015 Product #32239 (In Stock)
Rascal Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015 Rascal Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015

A rarity here:  an easygoing, nicely fruited, actually tastes like Pinot Noir value!  All Willamette Valley fruit in 2015, this shows the ripeness of the vintage in its ripe spiced strawberry, raspberry fruit and nice weight.  Juicy fresh in the middle and through the soft, smooth, finish where spice and baked berry flavors linger. At just 13% abv, not at all heavy but plenty of flavor!

Elk Cove Pinot Noir Willamette 2014 375ml Product #31676 (In Stock)
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

Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2016 Product #32608 (In Stock)
Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2016 Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2016

From a great Oregon Chardonnay vintage, this is a delicious, mouthwatering, blend of  Dijon clone 76 and 95 Chard made in tank with no malolactic fermentation.  Crisp green and red apple fruit gets depth from a bit of ripe stone fruit and zip from notes of Meyer lemon and Key lime.  Finishes generous and long with apple and stone fruit lingering nicely.  No oak, no malo, no kidding: delicious Chardonnay!

Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015 Product #32437 (In Stock)
Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015 Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015

Jim Maresh’s focus is on single vineyard Pinot Noir, so in most years, he sells off any barrels or lots that don’t make it into the final single vineyard cuvee.  In excellent years, though, that wine is just too good to part with, so he supplements it with fruit from neighbors and bottles this wine:  the Dundee Hills cuvee.  The 2014 was the first release of the Dundee Hills bottling in a few years.  It was a fine, 90-point, gem that Wine Advocate called “probably the bargain of the vintage."  The 2015 is better.

Oregon’s 2015 vintage looked and felt a lot like 2014 – warm weather, big harvest, bold fruit.  The difference is that the 2015s have better structure and style, both of which are on display here.  You’ll find ripe, dark red, fruit on the nose here with accents of blood orange and subtle smoke.  Wonderfully generous and vivid in the mouth, the dark cherry and plum fruit expands and coats your palate before savory notes of licorice and mushroom come in on the back.  The flavors linger nicely over fine, silky smooth, tannins that promise delight with food and 7-10 years improvement in cellar.  Terrific, delicious, stuff.

Harper Voit Pinot Blanc Sur Lie 2015 Product #31725 (In Stock)
Harper Voit Pinot Blanc Sur Lie 2015 Harper Voit Pinot Blanc Sur Lie 2015

Taking Pinot Blanc to a whole new level with 7 months aging on the lees in a fine, ripe, vintage. Dry and salty on the finish.

"This barrel-fermented wine drinks like a beautifully proportioned Chardonnay. It takes bright, intense fruit flavors of melon, yellow apples and green bananas, and puts a Burgundian spin on the mouthfeel with judicious acids and a touch of caramel. It's delicious, complex and should age nicely for another five to six years."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Purple Hands Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015 Purple Hands Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015

Cody Wright (Ken's son) is on fire with this Dundee Hills project.  A great value in rich, smoky, Pinot.

"Editors' Choice! The entry-level offering from Purple Hands is broad and delicious, loaded with lush ripe strawberry fruit. There's a dash of white pepper, which further pops up the flavors. Vivid and absolutely yummy, this is one to enjoy over the next couple of years."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 Product #31758 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015

This has been one of the best values in Willamette Valley Pinot Noir for years, but in 2015 it really soars.  This year 75% of the barrels came from sedimentary soils in Ribbon Ridge and Chehalem Mountain AVAs, 15% from Freedom Hill and 15% from volcanic soils in the Dundee Hills.  It’s genuinely lush and a bit showy now with opulent aromas and flavors of crushed black raspberry, dark cherries, exotic flowers, smoke and damp earth.  Mouthfilling and showing a glyceryl richness, but with vivid acids, fine tannins, and no excess of weight.  As Jim and Patty say, “There are seriously great bones here and this wine will stand up to many, many much higher priced bottlings… In short, this wine is a smoking deal!!

"Deep red. Expansive red berry and floral pastille scents and flavors show impressive energy and pick up a hint of smokiness as the wine opens up. Smooth and fleshy but lively as well; a late jolt of white pepper adds spicy bite. Generous but vibrant in character, finishing very long and sweet, with gentle tannins lending shape and subtle grip. This wine delivers exceptional bang for the buck."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Eyrie Vineyards Chardonnay Estate 2013 Product #31773 (In Stock)
Eyrie Vineyards Chardonnay Estate 2013 Eyrie Vineyards Chardonnay Estate 2013

Eyrie – the site of the Willamette Valley’s very first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay plantings – has been on fire with Chardonnay for years.  Here’s a little of the 2013 to whet your appetite for what’s to come.  As the reviews suggest, it’s all the better for having had a few years in bottle.

"The 2013 Estate Chardonnay comes from vines planted in 1965, the cuttings from Spring Mountain Vineyard that originally came from Wente. It has a very defined bouquet with citrus lemon, white peach and honeysuckle scents that are very focused. The palate is well balanced, resinous on the entry, again more a texturally focused white Oregon wine than one determined to cudgel you over the head with flavors. It becomes waxy toward the finish with a judicious dab of shaved ginger. This is understated and very succinct, but it deserves two or three years in bottle. Drink 2017-2028" Wine Advocate 90 points

"Spicy pear and apple fruit is at the core, with suggestions of green pineapple, mint and lemon verbena. The subtle herbs and citrus components are layered throughout, and the structure favors long term cellaring." Wine Enthusiast 92 points
