Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015 - 95 Points
A great pinot noir that shows dried flowers, violets and orchids. Cherry and raspberry undertones, too. Medium to full body with an incredible polished texture. Ripe and round tannins and a fresh and vibrant finish. Delicious now but better in 2020.

Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Laurène 2014 - 93 Points
A very pretty pinot with currant bush, minerals, underbrush, blackcurrants, dark cherries and bark. The palate is extremely polished with fine tannins, fresh acidity, lots of dark, blue fruit that remains balanced and lithe, and a fruity, minerally finish. Drink now or hold.

Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Edition Limitée 2015 - 96 Points
Wow. This really overflows with strawberry essence, blackberry crumble, cinnamon stick, hot stones, granite, ash, oranges, tobacco, violets, lavender and citrus rind. The structure is magnificent on the palate with fruit galore, yet it's all held in restraint by wonderfully tangy, fresh fruit and mouth-watering acidity. Full-bodied with a long and plush finish. Hard to resist now but better in 2020 and well beyond.

Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Louise 2015 - 95 Points
Incredible aromas of dried cherries, raspberries and orange skin. Floral undertones, too. Medium to full body, a creamy texture, soft and juicy tannins and a fresh and long finish. Already delicious but better in 2020.

Domaine Drouhin Chardonnay Eola-Amity Hills Roserock 2015 - 94 Points
Apple pie, pears, lemons and white chocolate to this elegant chardonnay. Medium to full body, a dense texture and a deep and mineral finish. I love the elegance and style. Fresh acidity. Drink or hold.

Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills Roserock 2015 - 94 Points
Another amazing pinot noir that shows such purity of the fruit. Blueberries, raspberries, lemons, oranges and hints of caramel. Medium to full body, an incredibly polished texture and a beautiful, exciting finish. Drink now or hold.

Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills Zéphirine 2015 - 98 Points
Incredible aromas of chamomile, hibiscus, fruit tea, lavender, dried strawberries, cherries, lemons and light white chocolate. Medium-bodied but with crazily formed tannins that are like velvety strings and are surrounded by vivacious acidity. A phenomenal, awe-inspiring finish. An indisputably unique wine. Drink from 2020.

Cloudline
Cloudline Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2016 - 89 Points
Fresh cranberries, red apples, rose apples, orange zest and citrus fruit as well as some herbs and elderberries. Light to medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.
