J.K. Carriere Provocateur Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2019


If you haven’t yet gotten your hands on some 2019 Oregon Pinot, holy smokes you’re missing out. I’m telling you I must’ve tried 15-20 of them now, and maybe one or two weren’t good. The rest are lights out.

Oregonians aren’t big on hyperbole, but if you listen to winemakers talk about the vintage, many will tell you it’s one of if not the best in their tenures. Those are just the facts. And while 2008, 2012, and even 2015 helped get Oregon to where they are on the world stage today, I believe the 2019 will launch them into a new stratosphere, leaving behind most every other domestic Pinot Noir not coming out of the Sonoma Coast or Sta. Rita Hills.

Owner and winemaker Jim Prosser has spent time in Burgundy, Australia and the Willamette Valley perfecting his craft and he seems to have really found something in Newberg, Oregon – right in the thick of Pinot Noir country. His 2019 Provocateur is a standout that has wowed folks on both coasts. First Marea took the lion’s share for their by-the-glass program, then James Suckling came in with a 91-point review. This is a beaut.

91 Points, James Suckling
Lots of dried flowers and herbs on the nose, as well as wild raspberries, toasted citrus peel and cedar. It’s medium-bodied with sleek tannins and lively acidity. Tight and spicy with well-integrated toasty notes and a zesty finish. Drink now or hold.
