Make Space for Walter Scott's Special Single Vineyard Pinots

Everything is different since our last Walter Scott single vineyard Pinot offer, so why not the offer itself? We've learned that you are quite good at reading our notes and knowing which wines are our favorites so this year, we're starting with the two single vineyards that occupy special places in our wine hearts: Sojeau and Temperance Hill.

If we could make wine from any vineyard in the Willamette Valley, these two would be right at the top of the list. But our friends Ken and Erica at Walter Scott already do it much better than we would so we'll leave the magic in their hands! Make space in your hearts and cellars for these special single vineyard Pinots.

$58.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($64.95 regular)

Us: It's now official (because we say so): Sojeau Pinot is the Walter Scott flagship, the essence of their style, the complete package. Voluminous and rounded, spun with the vivacious energy of the site. We love the density of the red cherries and berries, strolling hand-in-hand with purple flower and fresh earth accents plus a spice element that reminds me of the tastiest adult version of my favorite childhood beverage, root beer. "Sojeau" is the new name for Sojourner vineyard, which is without question or exception among the couple handfuls of our favorite vineyards in the whole Willamette Valley. We recommend holding for at least 6 months to fully allow the magic to flourish.

Ken & Erica: Power and sophistication. Wild raspberry, violet and spices showing sarsaparilla, cocoa and tobacco. Sweet red cherry & bolete mushroom with delicate tannins lead to a vibrant and intensely mineral finish.

Us: The oldest vines in the cellar produced the co-star of the 2019 vintage, classically Temperance Hill Pinot noir. When we talk "classic" Temperance it's summer raspberries that burst in your mouth, a Thanksgiving-herb medley of rosemary and sage, the ineffable savory complexities that make the vineyard unique. Walter Scott's take adds a sultry-umami porcini mushroom note which rides shotgun in this elegant, purring ride. I recommend holding for 8-12 months before sampling, and it should certainly last a good while in your cellar.

Ken & Erica: Dried sage, porcini mushroom, rosemary blossom, tea rose and pine needle balanced with raspberry glaze, huckleberry pie, molasses, anise and clove. Pure finesse with elegant tannins and a complex finish.
