Colene Clemens is on an incredible roll, notching another superlative review from Wine Spectator Insider for their Victoria Pinot noir 2015. And then there's the 2016 Dopp Creek new release that landed on our tasting table last week. Wow -- there's a ton of goodness packed into that value-priced Pinot. The whole line-up is worthy of your attention and of space in your wine racks!

Given its track record the last three vintages, and especially what's in this amazing bottle of 2016, Dopp Creek has firmly established itself as one of the best values in Willamette Valley Pinot noir. In our esteem, it is every bit as good as the '14 and '15 -- jam-packed with deep, dark berry goodness, the likes of which rarely (rarely) exist in sub-$25 Pinot. Rounding out this super-yummy delight are coffee, cocoa and earthy base notes, a true "you complete me" moment for this fantastic estate-grown Pinot value. You will love it! - Marcus

93+ points Wine Advocate:"The 2014 Pinot Noir Adriane has a meaty/broody character with notes of black raspberries, black cherries and red plums plus touches of violets, forest floor and Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, this is firmly structured with a solid foundation of grainy, ripe tannins and racy acid supporting the muscular fruit, finishing long and earthy. It should age beautifully!"

92 points Wine Advocate:"'The 2014 Pinot Noir Margo has intense cranberries, Bing cherries and lavender scents with suggestions of fragrant earth, underbrush and game. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a wonderful intensity of savory and red berry flavors supported by fine-grained tannins and great freshness, finishing with satisfying persistence."
