K&L Notes

Trisaetum Estate are turning out some of the finest Pinot Noir in all of Oregon. Their wines embrace the power and purity of fruit Willamette Valley can provide whilst maintaining a wonderful sense of poise and elegance that harks back to the grape's Burgundian heritage. These qualities were recognized by then Wine Advocate writer, Neal Martin. Martin, a huge Burgundy enthusiast, who is now Senior Editor for Vinous covering Burgundy, wrote: "I was very impressed by Trisaetum’s Pinot Noir. In fact, their Estates Reserve 2012 was one of the best that I encountered during my whole trip, a sumptuous and opulent Pinot Noir in the vein of a fine Vosne-Romanée blessed with cashmere tannins and perfect acidity, yet with the necessary structure and tension to lend it animation and 'life'. Given the quantity and quality, even the price means that you do not have to pay through the nose for such pleasure."

    This is a rare chance to get your hands on some deeply discounted, library vintage Pinot Noir from benchmark producer, Trisaetum. The "Estates Reserve" is a best-barrel selection from their three prestigious estate vineyards and delivers everything you could ask for in classy Oregon Pinot Noir. This parcel was sold upon release to an exporter intended for an overseas market, however, that business ran into troubles, and this wine has been stored in a commercial wine storage warehouse ever since. Now wanting to clear some inventory, they made us a spectacular deal at almost 50% off the wine's typical price and with eight years of graceful ageing to boot! This wine has layer upon layer of beautiful dark fruit, black raspberry, cherry, and bramble. Base earth notes are laced with baking spices and floral elements. The wine is rich on the palate with lots of mid-palate fruit and succulent texture. The eight years in bottle is just starting to add subtle complexity to the still quite youthful wine. Hints of leather, sandalwood, and dry leaf litter mingle with the bold berry fruits. A decant softens the wine and brings out even more fleshiness plus a few more red-fruited tones as it evolves in the glass. A stunning bottle of Pinot Noir in every regard, and right in its prime drinking window. One of the best bottles of Oregon Pinot I've had this year.
    Drink from 2021 to 2030
