From the phenomenal 2018 vintage in Oregon, the Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir from Bergstrom may be the highlight of his entire impressive fleet. Pretty much a labor of love, top lots are selected from some of the elite vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley – each tasted several a half dozen times in barrel before the final cut is made. The result is a complex collage of elegance and structure that can really best be described as Burgundian.
Obviously, I can’t tell you all the details of the vineyard source but I can let you in on a few of the details. Crafted using fruit from 1000-1500 ft in elevation, Chad’s 2019 is cool climate Pinot at its best– especially given the price tag. While similar wines (very similar wines) will fetch a $45 price tag, you can snag it today just less than half off that price on bottle one. There’s no surprise this is the #1 wine of the year in 2020.
An elegant, silky smooth Willamette Valley Pinot Noir crafted by Bertrand de Villane of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti fame. It comes from about 700 feet above sea level in the Dundee Hills atop Winter’s Hill and benefitted from cool, breezy nights. With a round, supple mouthfeel and a sturdy backbone this will age gracefully for a decade and a half easy. You can taste that Burgundian touch!
The newly released Elouan Oregon Pinot Noir 2018 is wonderfully ripe and juicy with vibrant flavors of rich cranberries, baked cherry pie and just a hint of earthiness. It’s packed with crushed red fruits and finishes with soft, refined tannins that leave a great aftertaste. It’s a great choice any time of the year– delicious by itself or paired with just about anything. In 2018, it saw predominantly fruit from the lush Willamette Valley, adding the cold weather Pinot element to a wine usually more reliant on southern Oregon.
For the very first time, superstar winemaker Anne Sery has made a pink wine for her meteoric Trousse Chemise brand. The NYC restaurant favorite tapped into some new fruit sources in Southern Oregon to pair with her Willamette Valley vineyards to make a Rosé of Pinot Noir with vibrancy and balance to pair with its elegance and depth. We’re lucky to be the first ones with Anne’s debut Rosé, but I can assure you it’s so good, it won’t be her last.
Every year since inception, Anne Sery’s Trousse Chemise wines have wowed folks from Coast to Coast (like Daniel Boulud). Her newly released 2019 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is easily one of the best in Oregon dollar for dollar. Wildly aromatic and bursting with an intense, berried up fruitiness– when people compare Oregon as the closest thing to Burgundy in America, this is what they are talking about. Juicy and vibrant, with even more expressive aromatics as a result of a cool September that allowed for maximum hangtime and concentration.
