We can’t get enough of Julia Bailey’s Loop de Loop(s). As often happens with fledgling, micro-production wineries, her fruit sources have changed between the 2016 and 2017 vintages; the ‘17 features two vineyards known to many of our club members: Johan (in the Van Duzer Corridor, Symonette (in the Eola-Amity Hills, formerly known as Nuestro Sueno Vineyard, source of Whistling Dog Pinot noirs), and a secret site in the Dundee Hills that shall remain unnamed.
Like the previous two Pinots we fell in love with, the ‘17 is fresh, savory, and simply beautiful, with a subtle resinous quality which reminds me of rosemary, my favorite herb. It’s even prettier than the ‘16 and just as vibrant, dishing spoonfuls of red fruits. Classically Pinot in feel, another ruby-hued gem from Loop de Loop. - Marcus
