The praise poureth over for 2017 Willamette Valley Pinots, with dueling 94s from Wine Spectator for a couple of Oregon's finest: Eminent Domaine and Bergstrom. We've tasted both and they rock! Time to stock the cellar for fall.
94 points Wine Spectator:"A polished, compelling wine, with layered raspberry, rose petal and orange peel flavors that build richness and structure toward a long, supple finish. Drink now through 2025."
Us: Extra juicy, extra lively, loaded with yummy red and blue fruits and a just-right balance of Ribbon Ridge earth and spice. Not to sound like a broken record on '17, but we can't recall a tastier vintage of Eminent Domaine's Pinot.
94 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive for the presence and polish, with layered black cherry, fresh violet and dusky spice flavors that build richness and structure toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025."
Us: Josh Bergstrom coaxes the utmost finesse from Shea, especially in the '17. Highly aromatic, churning vibrancy, succulent silkiness, ready for your glass.
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
