I can't see a thread, so have started one. I am continuing to test out my Oregon purchases as no point buying year on year blindly without knowing if you will actually like the wines. So far I am really enjoying the Oregon 2018s I have had, and in both colours.
- 2018 Martin Woods Pinot Noir Jessie James Vineyard - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Eola - Amity Hills (7/20/2021)
Vivid ruby red in colour. There are lovely forest floor and sappy juicy cherry aromas that jump out of the glass. The immediate sensation on the palette is seduction by delicious concentrated red fruit especially strawberries with mouth watering acidity, fine tannins and a silky mouthfeel all within a light to medium bodied and supremely balanced structure. It is not the most complex wine but it does not need to be. There is persistence and a rising crescendo on the finish. Great wine making. Bottled under Diam 10 at 13.5% ABV. Served refrigerated during hot weather from Conterno Sensory. (93 pts.)
