Arterberry Maresh Maresh Vineyard 2011
Wine Advocate 95 $57.95
The downright suave and sexy aromas are a shade darker than the typical Maresh vineyard profile, while remaining true Maresh: crushed cherries, brown sugar, orange essence, and incense. The 2011 adds pinches of raspberry and dark strawberry to the Maresh cherry core. The finish is bright, sweet, and long, with a mineral ribbon pulsing throughout.
Soter Mineral Springs 2010
#1 Pinot, Portland Monthly, Wine Advocate 93 $49.95
One of our favorites from the stellar 2010 vintage. Rich red raspberry carries the day with beautiful balance, resulting in a silky finish that is quickly becoming the standard of excellence for the vintage. The 2010 Mineral Springs will excite all palates from today through 2020.
Colene Clemens Reserve 2010
#2 Pinot, Portland Monthly, Wine Advocate 92 $44.95
Really inviting, especially with a couple minutes in your glass. - Marcus "...a striking aroma of diverse flowers, smoky black tea and Asian five spice, fresh ripe cherry and purple plum...This sumptuous success ought to be worth following for at least ten or a dozen years." - Wine Advocate
Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve 2010
#3 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2013, 95 points $84.95
"Vibrant, focused and deliciously complex, offering raspberry, cherry, cinnamon, mocha and subtle sage notes rolling through the long and expressive finish. Deft. Drink now through 2020._ - Wine Spectator
Beaux Freres Willamette Valley 2011
Wine Spectator 93 $49.95
"The satiny texture lets the harmonious flavors of red berry, pomegranate and spice unfurl evocatively. The finish lingers enticingly. Shows freshness and balance. Drink now through 2020." - Wine Spectator
Sineann Resonance 2012
(last vintage, not yet rated) $47.95
Richly textured and voluptuous, the likes of which we haven't seen from Oregon Pinot in a few years. Gutsy and forward dark berry and black cherry liqeuer are mouth-coating, with accents of baking spices and vanilla on the long finish. Fans of a bigger style of Pinots will love this.
