2017 marked Domaine Drouhin’s 30th Anniversary in Oregon, and the 2017 Laurène marks the 26th release of this cuvée named after Veronique Boss Drouhin’s daughter. The wine has charm and character—vibrant, yet restrained, which allows the vintage’s detail to be expressed. On the nose, the 2017 Laurène carries notes of pure, sweet cherry, pomegranate, baking spice, ripe blackberries, wild herbs, and fresh sage.

2017 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir

An exquisite expression of Domaine Serene’s multi-faceted terroir, the 2017 ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir is robust and perfectly balanced, offering a complete harmonious experience for the senses. A deep ruby hue resulting from a long, gentle extraction entices. The nose reveals bursting aromas of fresh blackberry and cherry compote. On the palate, the wine undulates with a velvety texture and composed tannins, with a crescendo of flavors from exotic spice, forest underbrush, freshly-cut mushrooms and dark fruit. Another truly stunning offering to enjoy now, but also to cellar for graceful aging.

Durant Vineyards

2017 Bishop Pinot Noir

Lively garnet in the glass with rich aromatics of strawberry, red cherry, violets, dark chocolate, anise, and sweet French oak. The palate brings diversity from ripe muddled cherries and rhubarb pie, to rich leather, dried tobacco leaf, clove, nutty, and floral notes. Velvety tannins and fresh acidity are complemented by a supple mouthfeel which come together to highlight layers of flavor long after the last sip.

This is a full body wine, with lively acidity, and broad, fine, silky texture. The long finish lingers with a chorus of raspberries, fading violet petals, and Dundee dust.

Fox Farm Vineyards

2017 Pinot Noir

This is the softest and most elegant wine that Fox Farm Vineyards produces. 100% dry-farmed, old-vine Pommard pinot noir, from a steep east-facing block in The Dundee Hills. This site is noted for making small crops of tight, delicate clusters of flavorful pinot noir. The resulting wine is fresh, lively, and balanced, with complex aromatics of red fruits, kitchen spices, herb tea and smoke. With cellaring (and will-power), this wine will age gracefully for 8-10 years.

Furioso Vineyards

2017 La Linea Furioso Pinot Noir

A little shy with its look, this wine will surprise with its perfumy, complex nose of fresh raspberry, violet, and sweet spice. In the mouth, the wine is gracefully expressive with cherry and blueberry flavors paired with some elusive notes of blood orange. The palate displays a delicate structure and delivers extremely polished tannins. This 2017 version of La Linea is really showing its feminine streak here. With every sip of this wine, we think of Lauren Bacall: Classy, elegant but with those penetrating piercing eyes, not so different to the vibrant intensity that this wine has to offer. Enjoy with a porcini risotto or a grilled pork tenderloin with plums. Will work well also as a sipping wine while watching “The Big Sleep”.

Holloran Vineyards

2017 Holloran Pinot Noir Le Pavillon
Vineyard

This pretty, elegant old-world style Pinot Noir starts with a dusty cherry nose, plus a hint of cinnamon. On the palate, black cherry notes mix with a touch of damp earth, and grilled blood orange. The finish extends, very softly, showing ripe tannins. With bottle age the wine will evolve substantially. Recommended drinking window 2022-2030. Enjoy with Pork Loin with Cherry-Orange compote.

Knudsen Vineyards

2017 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

Red raspberry, spiced cherry, and blood orange emerge from the glass, followed by gentle notes of cola and quinquina. The body is light and linear with a good balance of youthful fruit and complex spices with a whisper of oak in the background. On the palate, suggestions of orange blossom and allspice, supported by crisp acidity and a pleasantly long finish.

Lange Winery

2017 Pinot Noir

This bottling is a pure expression of terroir and displays the earthy minerality of the volcanic soils that the Dundee Hills AVA is known for. Beautifully red-fruited with exotic spices, this deeply complex wine is backed by an elegant structure and balanced tannins.

Maresh

2017 Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir

Translucent magenta. Heady, mineral- and spice-accented red and blue fruit and potpourri aromas are complemented by exotic incense and Asian spice flourishes. Vibrant, palate-staining raspberry, red currant, boysenberry, candied rose and spicecake flavors suavely blend power and delicacy. Sneaky, polished tannins add subtle grip to a strikingly long, incisive finish that leaves resonating floral and spice notes behind.

Native Flora

2017 The Heretic, North Slope Pinot Noir

This single block Pinot Noir comes from their steepest north slope plantings. It is a darker, smoldering, almost brooding yet elegant pinot, showing notes of tobacco and earth scents over deep cherry. It is denser than most pinots, and reminiscent of Burgundies from Romanee St. Vivant. The Heretic truly displays the range of options available on this marvelous estate.

Sokol Blosser Winery

2017 Twelve Row Block Estate Pinot Noir

This estate Pinot Noir is full of aromas of leather and other earthy notes. An intense spice swirls around the palate with dark fruit notes, it finishes with strong tannins from the extended maceration and barrel aging in French oak. This is the wine to bring for rich French cuisine, beef bourguignon, cassoulet, and duck confit.

Stoller Family Estate

2017 Stoller Family Estate Reserve Pinot Noir

The 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir is classic Oregon with bright acidity, lighter tannin structure, and fresh fruit characteristics. This Pinot Noir opens with aromatics of ripe raspberry, red rose, and earth. The palate presents elegant tannins, carrying flavors of bing cherry and pomegranate, with hints of bramble. This wine can be enjoyed now; however, it was constructed for longevity with proper cellaring.

Torii Mor Winery

2017 Olson Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir

This complex wine emerges with aromas of violet, cherries and blueberry. Bright on the palate, flavors are sweet with concentrated dark berry notes and rich chocolate, leading to a long and elegant finish of earthiness and a light touch of oak. The wine is ready to drink now but will be worth the wait with 6 or more years of cellaring.

Winters Hill Vineyard

2017 Winters Hill Pinot Noir Block 8

This wine is a selection of only 4 barrels from the Block 8 section of vineyard and is comprised of 100% Wädenswil clone Pinot Noir. Block 8 is the smallest, steepest, and warmest section of the vineyard. Block 8 ranges from 620-680 feet in elevation, and produces a Pinot Noir that showcases more elegance, floral and fruit characteristics with high acidity. This 2017 vintage showcases aromas of dried rose petal and red cherries with an earthy undertone. The palate is light-medium body filled with cherries and finishes with juicy acidity and soft tannin.
