This morning's Wine Spectator Insider featured another round of highly rated Willamette Valley Pinot noir, including another smash hit from the Drouhin family and the WV bottling from rising stars Domaine Roy. 93 points for each and excellent values -- grab them!
93 points Wine Spectator Insider 8.7.19:"Impeccably structured and polished, with expressive black cherry and blueberry flavors, accented by black tea and stony mineral notes that build tension and presence toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2026.
Roserock, Drouhin's Eola-Amity Hills property, showcases a darker, more powerful Drouhin profile, influenced by the cooling maritime winds funneled through the Van Duzer Corridor. An excellent value with depth and class.
93 points Wine Spectator Insider 8.7.19:"Graceful and refined, with polished and complex raspberry, fresh violet and orange peel flavors that build tension toward supple tannins. Drink now through 2026.
Maison Roy, part of the Domaine Roy family, is an exciting up-and-coming producer with a very familiar (to us) winemaker: Jared Etzel. We've known Jared as the eldest son of Beaux Freres founder Michael Etzel, as co-winemaker of Horsetail, and now as Domaine/Maison Roy's chief wine man.
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
Some wines speak to the past, some are here and now, others offer glimpses at how the Willamette Valley might evolve. Only one winery encompasses it all–storied past, delicious present, thrilling future: Eyrie.
