Beckham Estate Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir 2013 3.0 LT

90-91 Our Score
(3/2016) The 2013 Beckham Estate Pinot Noir has impressive depth and weight. A mix of delicious ripe fruit greets the senses with notes of wild cherry, strawberry cranberry and rhubarb. There is a sense of sweetness to the fruit, similar to that of cherry pie. The complexity of secondary notes is very complimentary to the fruit with notes of baking spices, pie crust, pine needles, dried porcini mushroom, cocoa dust and baked earth. The texture is smooth and silky as it glides along the palate towards a pleasant and long finish. The Beckham's only produced 250 cases of this beauty. Easily worth a case purchase to enjoy over the next 5 - 8 years.

Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2012

(3/2015) "The 2012 Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve was picked from late summer after one of the driest on record. There was better heat accumulation, according to Erik Kramer, but he does not regard it has a hot vintage. It was a low yield at around 1.7 and 1.8 tons per acre, partly due to a preflowering cluster removal. The skin-to-pulp ratio was very high and it was raised in 65% new oak over 16 months. It has a deep garnet color. The bouquet is in stark contrast with strawberry pastille and raspberry coulis, hints of iodine developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berry fruit interlaced with sea salt and white pepper. There is an undercurrent of gaminess to this 2012 that lends intrigue toward the finish that gently grips the mouth. Not as opulent as other 2012 Pinot Noirs that I have tasted, but clearly very well crafted by winemaker Erik Kramer and with a prosperous future ahead. Drink: 2016-2028."

Beckham Estate Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir 2012

91 Our Score
(11/2015) Beckham Estate is a small, family owned vineyard and winery located in Willamette Valley's Chehalem Mountains. The 2012 vintage for Oregon is regarded as one of the greatest ever and Beckham has made one of their greatest wines in their short history. The 100% estate fruit was hand-harvested, hand-sorted, de-stemmed and whole berry fermented. The cool climate and high elevation of their vineyards yield a wine that is leaner and brighter compared to most, with strong flavors of earth, dried red flower petals and rocky earth that compliment the delicate cherry, strawberry and cranberry fruits. 15 months aging in French oak, 40% of which was new, adds further complexity in the form of baking spices and a round texture. Only 210 cases were bottled in March of 2014.

Patricia Green Cellars "Notorious" Pinot Noir 2014

94 Vinous, Josh Raynolds

(4/23/2016) "The 2014 Pinot Noir Notorious is a barrel selection from new oak barrels, each with four to seven gallons of settling lees added when they are filled. This consists of two barrels from Freedom Hill, two barrels from Balcombe Vineyard, and one barrel from Durant and Olenik Vineyard. Naturally, the new oak comes through quite strongly at this early stage, although it feels in sync with the fruit, quite polished and pure. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth, velvety texture, the acidity very well judged, very harmonious and yet it is obvious that it will need several years for its personality to be revealed. This will be a seductive and doubtless quite sensual Pinot Noir with great pedigree."

(12/2016) "(57 percent new oak) Limpid ruby-red. Oak-spiced red berries, cherry and licorice on the fragrant nose, along with hints of vanilla and musky herbs in the background. Sweet and lively in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and cherry cola flavors that unfold and slowly put on weight with air. The vanilla and cola notes recur on a long, gently tannic finish that's given snap by a late jolt of tangy acidity. Drinking Window: 2018 - 2022."

Arterberry Maresh "Maresh Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

95 Wine Advocate
(6/2016) "The 2014 Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir has a beautiful bouquet with wonderful precision. The vine age does show through here (44-years-old now) with crisp detailed red berry fruit that just exudes Pinoté. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very well-judged acidity, touches of truffle and undergrowth tincturing the red berry fruit that fans out wonderfully towards the long and satisfying finish. This is a great Pinot Noir from an estate that seems to have thrived in 2014. Drink: 2018 - 2035."

(12/2016) "Bright ruby-red. Suave, oak-spiced aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry cola and minerals carry a zesty floral overtone. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry, cola and lavender pastille flavors plus hints of mocha and spicecake. Shows impressive clarity and spicy lift on a very long, fruit-driven finish that's shaped by even, slow-mounting tannins."

(10/2015) "Brilliant red. Heady, spice-accented aromas of fresh red berries and flowers, along with hints of white pepper and underbrush. Fresh, precise and appealingly sweet, with lively raspberry and mulberry flavors picking up a candied rose quality with air. Shows very good tenacity and lift on the persistent finish, which is given shape by silky, fine-grained tannins."

91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(12/2016) "Brilliant red. Vibrant mineral- and spice-laced aromas of ripe red berries and candied rose, complicated by a suggestion of pungent flowers. Clean and nervy on entry, then deeper in the midpalate, offering energetic black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of smokiness. Fine-grained tannins build slowly on the sappy, penetrating finish, which hangs on with strong floral persistence. Drink: 2018 - 2023."
