2016 Trisaetum Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $30)

SKU #1378341 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Fashioned entirely from estate-grown grapes, this muscular and substantial wine melds together black cherry, black olive and sweet spices. It's firm and polished, with almost silky tannins, and punches well above its price. Drink this now through the next decade. *Editors' Choice* (PG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Broad but refined, with lively rose petal and black raspberry notes accented by dusky spice and stony mineral hints. Finishes with big but polished tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a nose of rose petal perfume, cinnamon stick and potpourri over ripe red and black cherries and berries with touches of underbrush and Earl Grey tea leaves. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm red and black fruits, perfumed earth and floral accents, with fine-grained tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long with the sweet fruit coming through.

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2016 vintage started very early, with bud break at the end of March, and progressed through a warm, dry growing season. Pinot Noir was picked starting on August 30th on the Ribbon Ridge Estate; and finally concluded on September 22nd when the last of our fruit from the Coast Range made its way to the winery. Given the warm, dry vintage, James opted to start all ferments with native indigenous yeast in 2016, as well as more whole-cluster ferments than previous vintages. The wines were aged in a mixture of new and neutral French oak barrels from the forests of Nevers, Allier, Limousin and Troncais."

Truly one of the best value Pinot Noirs at K&L right now in my opinion. We carried this wine upon release a couple years back and right from the first taste I was floored by just how delicious it was for the money. It's one of those wines that just flat-out tastes good! The lifted floral aromas, the purity of fruit, the soft lush texture, mouthwatering finish...this is a straight-up, go-to everyday drinker that totally over delivers in every respect. When the opportunity presented itself to get our hands on a parcel of this I couldn't believe our luck! One of my favorite wines of the vintage that was "sold out" all too soon, was back again! I took every case available to us because I just know that once folks taste how good this wine is for $19.95 it won't be around long, because if there's anything people can't get enough of it's really good Pinot Noir for under $20! Loaded with ripe dark cherry and bramble fruit, baking spice, sandalwood, and marzipan. Silky and elegant but with plenty of fruit weight and richness. A lovely spicy lift of clove and star anise on the finish with a touch of savory leaf litter for nuance. Just such a complete bottle of Pinot. All estate grown and produced. This holds up to many of it's peers at twice the price and beyond.
Top Value!
