96-97 point Oregon Pinots!

There's a new round of eye-popping scores for Oregon wines, entirely deserved if you ask us. They were published last weekend by The Prince of Pinot in his newsletter, PinotFile. We've followed and respected The Prince's newsletter for many years; he tastes a ton of domestic Pinot noir, knows his stuff, and writes excellent notes. 

His recent installment included amazing reviews for wines we've recently offered, from one of our favorite producers), Walter Scott. 96-97 points for Temperance Hill and Freedom Hill Vineyards!!  

Walter Scott Temperance Hill Pinot noir 2015
$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 
96-97 points PinotFile: "I was at a loss of words in describing this joyful nose offering aromas of dark berries, spice and underbrush with a feral tone. One can really taste the Temperance Hill terroir in this wine, with its structured sense and its typically vigorous black cherry and black raspberry fruit flavors. The wine is in perfect harmony, with a silky mouthfeel, gracious acidity, fine-grain tannins, and a lasting finish. Still an overwhelming experience when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Pinot noirs from this vineyard are consistently captivating." 

Walter Scott Freedom Hill Pinot noir 2015
$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 
96-97 points PinotFile: "The nose is reserved but alluring with wafting aromas of cherry blossom, raspberry coulis and tobacco and an earthy underpinning. Unctuous on the palate with perfectly ripened fruit flavors of strawberry, cherry and raspberry. As typical with this vineyard, the tannins are a bit imposing but are not drying, and they smooth out over time in the glass. Wines from this vineyard can be a bit gruff, but that quality is not evident in this wine. I remained infatuated when I tasted this wine the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. This one will stay the long course." 
 
The Prince loved Walter Scott Chardonnay, too:

Walter Scott Cuvee Anne Chardonnay 2015
$35.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($39.95 regular) 
95 points PinotFile: "Captivating steely, stony, flinty aromas matched to fruit aromas of citrus, white peach and pear. Highly mineral-driven, with flavors of lemon-lime, pear and green apple offering a toned and trim impression, finishing with a quenching, steely attitude. A slight bit of tannin adds structure and the slightly creamy mouthfeel adds comfort. Remarkable poise and immense charm."  

We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
