Trisaetum 2013 Estates Reserve Dry Riesling (Willamette Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $32
Trisaetum produces both a dry and an off-dry cuvée from each of its estate vineyards, and continues the practice with this Estates Reserve. This offers extra concentration, grip and complexity. Floral, citrus, stone fruit and bracing acidity combine in a midpalate that is packed with young fruit flavors. Good as it is, the best is yet to come.  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)

Trisaetum 2013 Estates Reserve Riesling (Willamette Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $32
Sourced from the best barrels made at the winery in 2013, this off-dry reserve checks in with roughly 30 g/L residual sugar, and plenty of acidity to more than balance it out. It’s sweet, tart and sappy, with concentrated, juicy flavors of Meyer lemon, grapefruit and tangerine. It feels full-bodied and roundly fruity, then continues to extend itself with…  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)

Trisaetum 2012 Estates Reserve Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75
Concentrated and lively, this showcases luscious black cherry fruit that’s perfectly framed with zippy acidity and ripe tannins. It’s a full-bodied, New World style, but with a complex, layered finish that says Oregon rather than California.  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)

Trisaetum 2013 Ribbon Ridge Estate Dry Riesling (Ribbon Ridge)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $24
This dry wine from the Ribbon Ridge vineyard, adjacent to the winery, is briskly tart without being sour. Flavors of lemony tea and Meyer lemon meringue intrigue immediately. There is splendid structure and complexity in play here, with layers of flower, citrus and mineral, all in perfect harmony. It’s easy to believe this wine could age through 2024, even longer.  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)

Both the dry and off-dry Ribbon Ridge Rieslings are outstanding—no need to pick a favorite. Here is an elegant, sophisticated mix of stone fruits, mineral, sweet fruit sugar and bracing acidity. The overall balance, tension and complexity are superb.  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)

Trisaetum 2013 Coast Range Estate Riesling (Yamhill-Carlton District)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $24
This is the medium-dry (about 23 g/L residual sugar) Riesling from one of Trisaetum’s estate vineyards. Full-bodied, forward and bearing an acid-driven mix of pear, white peach, apricot and papaya fruit flavors, this wine delivers gobs of pleasure immediately, yet continues to add depth and detail when left to breathe overnight.  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)

Aubichon Cellars 2012 Vista Hills Pinot Gris (Dundee Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $30
Distinctive, artisanal and sourced from a spectacular site, this was fermented in oak and barrel aged. The hock bottle indicates the Alsatian style, and the wine inside is both powerful and sturdy, with supple, generous flavors of stone fruits running into light tropicality.  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)

The Eyrie Vineyards 2012 Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $35
Fine-tuning a legacy, second-generation winemaker Jason Lett’s wines are clean, elegant, poised and balanced. This is textbook Pinot Noir, with just-ripe raspberry and cherry fruit, vivid acidity, savory herb, and a foundation of clay and clean earth. Drink now–2024.  — P.G.  (10/1/2014)
