Adding to the hype surrounding our 2012s, the newest “big thing” is Maison Louis Jadot, the large Burgundy house, who just purchased Resonance Vineyard. That signals the end of one of Oregon’s celebrated Pinots, Sineann Resonance. What a vintage to go out on!
Sineann’s Last Vintage: Resonance Pinot noirs
2012 is the last vintage Sineann will produce Resonance wines. Harvey Steiman, Oregon reviewer for Wine Spectator, posted yesterday about Resonance Vineyard: “The small vineyard has made some of Oregon’s most memorable Pinot Noirs, especially in the hands of Peter Rosback at Sineann.”
Sineann Resonance Vineyard Pinot noir 2012
$43.15 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($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 liqueur are mouth-coating, with accents of baking spices and vanilla on the long finish. If you’re a fan of a bigger style of Pinot, this wine will hit the bulls-eye.
Sineann Resonance Vineyard Reserve 2012 – Very Limited
$53.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($59.95)
Sold out at the winery, only 70 cases produced, the final vintage. More complex and muscular than the “regular” Resonance, it also has better balance and depth. An aromatic nose filled with dried berries, Asian spices and flowers leads to a palate loaded with ripe dark berries and cassis, all on a creamy frame. A prime example of intense Oregon Pinot.
