    Kingsrule, you’re in Seattle yes? I need to visit as your taste in wines is pretty remarkable! Maybe in Feb or March when I drive up for the annual Music Matters. I’ll bring something from my own cellar, though you seem to have wines with a few more years in the cellar.

    Re: What Wine is in Your Glass Tonight

    (Forgive me for having posted this in the "what's in your glass tonight" topic, I thought I was here in the "what WINE is in your glass tonight" topic...)

    I live in Portland, OR neighborhood, and the Willamette Valley is just a short drive away. There are a few really well regarded Pinot producers, some contending with the best of from Burgundy. That said, I tend to shy away from Pinot as it tends to have a bit of a sweeter profile (red cherries, red raspberries, strawberries) compared dark fruit profile of Cabernet, syrah, etc. I do appreciate (as I experience more truly great Pinot) jus how expressive a grape it is.

    A couple months back, before the China virus, my wife and I attended a wine dinner for a local charity. There we were introduced to a Pinot producer that absolutely blew me away. I don’t even consider it Pinot as the wine is simply stunning it its complexity and layering.

    Rose&Arrow-Hopewell-Hills_fr.jpgRose&Arrow-Hopewell-Hills_bk.jpg

    The parent vineyard has 128 acres under vine, but the “Rose & Arrow” label represents only 7.5 acres, from which they produce 7 wines from 7 different parcels. Very limited production. The wine shown is the entry to their amazing wines.

    A good and dear friend who has wine knowledge of a level 2 or 3 sommelier wrote this after I sent him a bottle:

    My tasting note are thus: Seductive, angelic, enchanting, heavenly, mesmerizing! Rich red raspberry, ripe blueberry on the nose and palate with a hint of rainier cherry on the front. As the wine opens after a few minutes you’re connected with the mineral foundations of the earth - bedrock - finished on the back of the palate with light cedar and dominatrix leather! Feminine and strength to be sure.

    and...

    My favorite Pinot Noir ever to be sure. Like sitting down with Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill for a lengthy discussion over dinner and an evening!

    Remarkable and rare, if you love wine never pass an opportunity to taste this.

    (Forgive me for having posted this in the "what's in your glass tonight" topic, I thought I was here in the "what WINE is in your glass tonight" topic...)

    I live in Portland, OR neighborhood, and the Willamette Valley is just a short drive away. There are a few really well regarded Pinot producers, some contending with the best of from Burgundy. That said, I tend to shy away from Pinot as it tends to have a bit of a sweeter profile (red cherries, red raspberries, strawberries) compared dark fruit profile of Cabernet, syrah, etc. I do appreciate (as I experience more truly great Pinot) jus how expressive a grape it is.

    A couple months back, before the China virus, my wife and I attended a wine dinner for a local charity. There we were introduced to a Pinot producer that absolutely blew me away. I don’t even consider it Pinot as the wine is simply stunning it its complexity and layering.

    The parent vineyard has 128 acres under vine, but the “Rose & Arrow” label represents only 7.5 acres, from which they produce 7 wines from 7 different parcels. Very limited production. The wine shown is the entry to their amazing wines.

    A good and dear friend who has wine knowledge of a level 2 or 3 sommelier wrote this after I sent him a bottle:

    My tasting note are thus: Seductive, angelic, enchanting, heavenly, mesmerizing! Rich red raspberry, ripe blueberry on the nose and palate with a hint of rainier cherry on the front. As the wine opens after a few minutes you’re connected with the mineral foundations of the earth - bedrock - finished on the back of the palate with light cedar and dominatrix leather! Feminine and strength to be sure.

    and...

    My favorite Pinot Noir ever to be sure. Like sitting down with Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill for a lengthy discussion over dinner and an evening!

    Remarkable and rare, if you love wine never pass an opportunity to taste this.
    Nice write up!....Never heard of this wine.....now I have to acquire some!!!

    How is it?
    I have a mag of either the 89 or 90 in the cellar and probably a 750 or 2

    Should be just about perfect
