A lot of times, being first doesn’t mean being the best– but that’s not true in Oregon Pinot Noir. Adelsheim, Eyrie, and Erath are the big three in terms of first to establish roots in Oregon, and to this day, the trio are considered the creme de la creme in what is now hundreds of wineries in the state. Adelsheim is a consistent high-scorer across the board for their entire catalog of wines, having been named a World’s Top 100 Winery seven times now by Wine & Spirits Magazine. Their new 2019 Estate Pinot Noir is a flawless introduction to Oregon Pinot. Everybody will love this one, I’m sure.
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.

Erin Nuccio, the former apprentice for Russ Raney at Evesham Wood has created quite the buzz in the Eola Amity AVA in Oregon with his winery Haden Fig. It’s there where he expresses himself more, experiments more with native yeast and pushes his winemaking boundaries to new heights. Erin’s 2018 is one of the end products of these new heights. This wine is an absolute bombshell, sourced from some of the best vineyard sites in Oregon.

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.
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.
