    March 18, 2021 - Popped and poured. Deep purple core; notes of black cherry, pomegranate, raspberry, crushed stone. Medium to full bodied, extracted, good depth, excellent acidity which provides good structure and grip. Needs a few years in the cellar to integrate; will need to relocate from my wife’s “safe to drink” cellar and hide them away in mine! Should merit a higher rating with time.

    February 15, 2021 - 2018 Marie-Paule Pinot Noir, 93pts/Editors’ Choice (WE) (50/50% destemmed/whole cluster)—$32 retail, see tasting notes below. 167 cases produced, only 76 remain. Cortell-Rose Vineyard, Eola-Amity Hills AVA, Willamette Valley, Oregon.

    WE Tasting Notes: “This cuvée was half fermented with whole clusters. It’s a precise, focused wine—the blackberry and black cherry fruit has a gentle squirt of lemony acidity. It’s lively and clean, with no sulfites added, and a lovely showcase for this outstanding vineyard.” 93pts., Editors’ Choice, P. Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, Oct 2020

    “Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Delicate aromas of blackberry, black currant and sweet tobacco. Well-endowed with lavish, dark fruits that offer more pop and finishing length than that found in the Colette bottling. There is a little more, but not intrusive, tannic spine evident (than the Colette).” 91 pts., Rusty Gaffney, Prince of Pinot, Nov 2020

    February 11, 2021 - Higher acid, which integrated with time. Darker berry flavors - more reminiscent of a CA pinot.
