This is rich, opulent, stunning Pinot Noir with a higher pH and a deeper, richer complexion than their Willamette neighbors. It’s a dead ringer for Russian River Valley. Deep red ruby color to the rim with high-toned red berry fruit soaring right out of the glass. It’s incredibly fresh with tremendous depth backed by fine tannins, bright acidity and amazing purity of fruit on the palate. It’s a finessed and elegant Pinot with just intensity and length. At this price, there’s no better Pinot in the country. That’s a fact.
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.
The second year of this elegant, silky smooth Willamette Valley Pinot Noir crafted by Bertrand de Villane of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti fame. Again it comes from the gorgeous Winter’s Hill Estate about 700 feet above sea level in the Dundee Hills. All indications are that the 2019 is going to be one of the best for Pinot Noir since 1991. A flawless summer that benefited from very little rain mixed with cool, breezy summer nights. With a round, supple mouthfeel and a sturdy backbone this will age gracefully for a decade plus. Bertrand’s wines just have a signature stamp that is unmistakably his. This is phenomenal.
The recently 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.
92 Points (Editors’ Choice), Wine Enthusiast
The 2019 King Estate Pinot Gris is their best to date– the product of an exceptional vintage in Oregon with near perfect conditions for expressive, high-toned whites. The 92-point Editors’ Choice designation from Wine Enthusiast is a super rare feat for a Pinot Gris, but it’s a deserved one here for sure. Amazing notes of apricots, pear and juicy nectarine with a racy minerality on the finish that keeps you wanting more.
93 Points, James Suckling
This wine is so stinking good– there’s a reason it’s been a multiple recipient of a Wine Spectator Top 100 Wine of the Year nod. They haven’t gotten their hands on the 2018 yet, but I think I know how that one is going to go. It’s just so fresh and vibrant with an emphatic expression of berries and herbs and an effortless smoothness that lasts all the way through the finish. It’s Oregon Pinot at its best– when you feel like you’re drinking silk.
