A wonderfully complex dance of savory red fruits, hibiscus, blood orange, and a mouthwatering umami note, part soy-glazed mushroom, part salted caramel, that I absolutely drool over. Patience is practiced in the cellar, which is an increasing rarity. This wine -- a $20 Pinot noir -- was aged for 22 months in mostly neutral oak barrels to allow for more elegance and detail to develop and concentrate. That's simply unheard of. You will taste the difference. - Marcus
This is my 14th year selling Oregon wine and besides feeling a little old writing that, I'm feeling incredibly thankful. What has me feeling all warm and fuzzy? The wine I'm swirling and tasting, the very good folks behind it and once again, the opportunity to share it with you.
Twill Cellars again demonstrates why they're our new discovery of the last couple years with the release of their 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot noir. They are one of the few wineries in my 14 years where I'll say confidently: they are doing everything right.
Twill made a little more Willamette Valley Pinot in 2015 (still only 325 cases, a relative drop in the bucket) so they lowered the price -- such a simple thing that's unicorn-rare these days. Don't mistake a low price for a simple wine, as this displays outstanding complexity, elegance, and brilliance unseen in $20 Oregon Pinot.
It seems redundant to say that I strongly encourage you to grab this phenomenal Pinot bargain but what the heck? I strongly encourage you!!
