2013 ALIETTE PINOT NOIR
93 Points!


The 2013 WillaKenzie Estate 'Aliette' shows the depth of a warm summer. This wine begins with aromas reminiscent of forest floor, nutmeg, black cherry and black raspberry. Showing a darker fruit profile than the other WillaKenzie bottlings. Flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, and shades of black truffle. The structure tells me this is a long ager. Seductive bottling by WillaKenzie.

2013 PIERRE LÉON
PINOT NOIR

92 Points!


The 2013 Willakenzie Estate 'Pierre Leon' is a gorgeous showing. This wine has more of a Burgundian nose with crushed wild flowers, shitake mushroom, forest floor alongside red raspberry and allspice. there are flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, sage, pomegranate and orange rind alongside light tannins. Drinking better after an hour decant. Impressive structure and fruit. This reminds me of their very strong '11 bottling that flourished despite the coldness of the vintage.

2013 GISÈLE
PINOT NOIR

91 Points!



This Yamhill-Carlton bottling begins with aromas of red fruits like guava, stewed strawberry, pomegranate and cherry starburst candy. There are flavors of red cherry, dill, and cran- pomegranate with hints of orange rind. Forward and structured bottling, this is a complete joy to drink straight out of the bottle and not needing a decant right now.
