Wine Tasting Notes

2013 Pinot Blanc

Very aromatic and full of tropical fruit flavors, look for blood-orange and grapefruit zest on the nose.  Rich and full on the palate, lychee and orange flavors complement and balance the acidity.  Enjoy with scallops or chilled before dinner.

2013 Rosé of Pinot Noir

“The deep-watermelon hue suits the season: Extended skin contact has rendered it spicy and lively, almost like a very light red. While there’s a hint of candied cherries and raspberries on the nose, the zesty palate has a satisfying saline quality that makes you just want to slurp this stuff down. I’d pour this for cocktail hour but keep it on the table to pair with baked ham.” Katherine Cole for the Oregonian 4/14/14

 2009 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills

On the nose you’ll find aromas of vanilla, blackberry, and black currant.  The wine is smooth and ample, with rich tannins.  In the mouth, spices such as white pepper, anise, and cumin come to the fore one after another.  The finish is long, with a slight hint of smoke. 89 points.  Wine Enthusiast

 2012 Pinot Noir Block 9-115

An explosion of bramble berries fill the palate as you taste the wine. The 115 selection of Pinot Noir is known for its juicy acidity and this wine is no exception. Full, round tannins give the wine additional structure, leading to a finish of cotton candy &  blueberry with a hint of cranberry.

2011 Capitello Dolcino (“Small & Sweet”)

Capitello’s owner/winemaker, Ray Walsh, has a way of bringing beautiful harmony to blends.  This one is the same grape but from two very different places-Airlie Vineyard near Monmouth in the central Willamette Valley and Anindor Vineyard near Elkton northwest of Roseburg.  The result is a concentrated, Sauternes-like version of Gewürz, pink and golden, exuding the honey-ginger aroma associated with botrytis (noble rot) along with baked apple and honeysuckle.  A truly sweet treat.
