2012 Scott Paul Le Paulée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., $39, screwcap. Sourced from Maresh and Nysa vineyards in the Dundee Hills and Ribbon Ridge and Azana vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Flamboyant aromas of ripe black cherries, black raspberries, red grapes and spice lead to a rich and satisfying mid weight palate of dark cherry, dark berry and black plum flavors. The mouth feel is pure velvet and plush, and the finish is persistent. Plenty of sap in this vintage. Score: 91. Reviewed July 6, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2010 Scott Paul Les Gourmandises Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.1% alc., 93 cases, $40. Sourced from special 20-year-old blocks at Nysa Vineyard. “Les Gourmandises” is a French term for “Delicacies.” Natural fermentations, aged 10 months in 25% new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately light reddish color in the glass. Scents of dark red berry jam, fresh cherries, dried herbs and oak. Light and silky with a delicate array of red fruits backed by gossamer tannins. High voltage acidity with a citrus peel infused finish. Somewhat herbal in character probably due to under ripeness. Better the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle showing more expressive red cherry fruit but still sporting zingy acidity. Good. Reviewed November 24, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »
