2011 Opus One Pre-Sale
90 IWC
“Deep ruby-red.  Rather cool aromas of plum syrup, cocoa powder, licorice and fresh herbs. Spicier and leaner than the young 2012, with a strong impression of acidity and an herbal element giving a tart quality to the blackberry, graphite and leather flavors.  Finishes brisk but a bit sour, with some spiky acidity and lingering pepper and herb notes.  I can't imagine this distinctly cool wine blossoming in the bottle.”

2009 & 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Sale
 
From Wine Advocate, Issue #197, October 31, 2011
“Two Terrific Vintages in the Southern Rhone”
(One Excellent, One Great)
 
“Across all ap-pellations, the 2009s are rich, full-bodied, velvety textured, front end-loaded, powerful wines…..The bigger red wines of Châteauneuf du Pape, Vacqueyras and Gigondas will last a decade,”
 
“This is a great vintage that comes close in quality to 2007 in the southern Rhône…..The 2010s will have significant aging potential, which is obvious in the level of tannins, but the tannins are sweet with exceptional elegance and finesse. The ratio of high extractive and phenolic skins to the juice has produced wines of extraordinary intensity, freshness, aromatic potential and obvious longevity. This is another great vintage that offers an embarrassment of riches for this region that has enjoyed a succession of extraordinary years.”
 
We have a few left in the cellar and there are still
a few available at the distributor level. Supplies are
very limited. Please provide a C.C. to secure your order.

Oregon Pinot Noir Update

By Josh Raynolds, IWC

In the eyes of most Willamette Valley winemakers 2012 is a pinot vintage for the record books, and by all accounts the market is in agreement:  the wines have sold swiftly and in many cases are all gone at the wineries and even at the wholesale and retail levels in many markets.  A smaller than normal yield meant that the wines would be allocated, regardless, but as soon as word got out about the overall high quality of the wines all bets were off.  A number of retailers I've spoken to reported that they're selling through their '12s, especially those from big-name wineries, as quickly as they can get them, and that they could easily sell twice as much.  In a sense this is the same phenomenon that pinot producers in northern California are experiencing, the big difference being that the crop down south was usually huge.
