Our Kind of Report: Wine Spectator's Top 2017 Pinots
We work to keep the words "report" and "wine" out of the same sentence. But when Oregon is featured on the cover of Wine Spectator with their 2017 vintage report, we're all good!
As you know, we've been singing 2017s praises for well over a year but it's always nice to have more validation. Spectator's headline: "Oregon winemakers deliver an outstanding crop in 2017, the latest in a string of great vintages."
Here are a handful of Spectator's top-scoring 2017 Pinots, each one also highly recommended by us. They're moving even more briskly now that the report is out; grab them while you can.

95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Combines structure with verve, offering richly expressive raspberry, violet and orange peel flavors that take on polish and complexity toward well buffed tannins. Drink now through 2028."
