You cats with those 9s need to get them pinkies down! This is solid. Doesn't have to be a single vineyard to be proud of it. #tastenotplace

Deep raspberry but not candied. Great finish for a 13.

Finally able to lock down reservations at Magdalena's. They have a unique set up in that they have a set menu that changes every week, and you are notified the week before if there are spots available...they sell out within 5mins! We were lucky to get on the list for their most recent "Supper Club" as they call it. Based on the menu, we figured 1 white and 1 red was appropriate. After enjoying my favorite Sauv Blanc (the Addax SB), my buddy Luke (who is a big Pinot fan) brought this to expand our knowledge on pinots and see what Oregon has cooking. At pop and pour, this was delicious. Lots of cherries, leather and dates on the nose. The taste was very different than the aromatics. More leather, Bing cherry, cedar and a touch of rhubarb. A very "dusty" Pinot.

Medium ruby color with paler rim. Red berries predominant on the nose with damp earth, and hints of spice. Nicely balanced on the palate, with medium body, modest new oak, silky texture, and nice lift. Blend of fruit from multiple vineyards including Gran Moraine 34%, Zena Crown 21%, Willakia 20%, Upper Terrace 10%, Roserock 6%, Hyland 3%, Saikkonen 3%.

Unbelievable Pinot!! Soft, but full mouth feel. Wonderful nose, long finish. Big, bold but gentle and kind on the palate...

Sipping Fine Wine

The Beaux Frères Vineyard is located on an 86-acre farm atop Ribbon Ridge in the Chehalem Valley near Newberg (Yamhill County, Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA). Bright red with aromas of sweet red fruits, baking spices and hints of pepper. On the palate strawberry and cherry flavors, slight sweet undertones, herb notes and smooth tannins. Well balanced on a lingering finish ending with mineral nuances.

Well made Oregon Pinot Noir. Subtle cherry fruit with just the right amount of oak. Herbal notes on the nose with a hint of leather and tobacco.
