2015 Vino Vasai Estate Chehalem Mountains Oregon Pinot Noir Rosé

10.7% alc., 72 cases, $18 (sold out). · Moderate pink color in the glass. Delicate aromas of strawberry, blood orange, leafy salad greens and creme fraiche. Highly flavorful, with tastes of strawberry, cherry, raspberry and blood orange offering bright acidity and some intensity on a satisfying finish. For a rosé, this wine has unusual aromatic persistence on the finish. Score: 88. Reviewed December 13, 2016 ARTICLE »

2014 Vino Vasai Dario Estate Chehalem Mountains Oregon Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., $25. From a 3-acre vineyard planted in 2001 in Jory and Laurelwood soils. Aged on the lees in neutral French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Pleasant aromas of black cherry and underbrush. Fresh and easy to like in an elegant, mid weight styled wine with flavors of black cherry, peppery spice, dried herbs and a hint of smoke. Nicely balanced, with evident but polished tannins, finishing on an upbeat note. Score: 89. Reviewed December 13, 2016 ARTICLE »

2014 Vino Vasai Estate Reserve Chehalem Mountains Oregon Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., $45. A barrel selection. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. More fruit concentration and supporting tannins than the Dario Estate bottling deserving of a Reserve designation. Deep black cherry flavor of Pommard has a earthy mushroom note also typical of Pommard. Very classy and seductive on the palate, with enough tannin for age ability. Still solid the following day when tasted from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. No need to be in a hurry to drink this beauty. Score: 92. Reviewed December 13, 2016 ARTICLE »
