Murto Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again.
(Notes this year were avoided, but scores are honest.)

Chardonnay 2019

Big Table Farm Eola Amity Hills Chardonnay 2019, Oregon

Light yellow in color with a golden hue.

Fruity on the nose with lemons, yellow apples, spices, minerals, light vanilla, light grapefruits, oak, and light fresh white flowers.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with limes, light grapefruits, citrus, green apples, light oak, spices, earth, bitter herbs, light vegetables and white pepper.

Tangy finish with limes.

This is a very nice Chardonnay from Oregon. Spicy and tangy with light wood notes.

Gets earthier as it opens up, with more green apples and grapefruit notes.

Easy drinking and good by itself. Drinking nicely now and will age nicely in the 2 to 5 years.

Tangy and interesting, and a good quality wine. Crisp and refreshing when properly chilled.

I paired it with a wild mushroom Brie cheese.

A tiny production of only four barrels. Unfined and unfiltered.

12.2% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$48.

Estate Cuvée Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2017

Heavy on the French oak, but it works well. Masculine for a Willamette Valley PN, but still well integrated. — 4 days ago

Estate Pinot Noir 2017

2017 drinking nicely. Dark cherry, hints of blackberry, rose petal, hints of mushroom earthiness, and strawberry. Well balanced with great structure. Can see this becoming even better with a couple more years in the cellar — would be interesting to see how some of the deeper flavors emerge as the acidity settles. — 6 days ago

Bishop Block Durant Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Popped 2 days ago. In the fridge overnight each night since. This btl has improved each day. Just a lovely example of OR PN. On the nose (now): wild strawberry, mint, balsam, aloe, a hint of cola. On the palate: lovely acidity and density, hi-toned red fruit, with a touch of herbs and a soft medicinal note. Soft, and elegant tannin on the finish, which becomes a bit more assertive on the close. Very good. Sad this is my last btl! — a month ago

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2016

9.1

Old school Willamette Pinot that doesn’t try too hard and is better for it. Mixed berry pie on the nose which is comforting and inviting. Beautifully balanced palate, ripe raspberries with a hint of both sweet spice and forest floor, no element too showy, and a velvety smooth medium-long finish. — a month ago
