WillaKenzie Estate 2013 Pinot Gris (Yamhill-Carlton District)

This is a lush and fragrant wine, instantly appealing with aromas of orange blossom and sweet pear. Quite dry and concentrated, it brings further flavors of citrus, grapefruit and lemon rind as it plays out in a lingering, refreshing finish.

WillaKenzie Estate 2012 Jory Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

Showing exceptional density and concentrated black cherry and cassis fruit, this young wine opens to reveal further details of earth, iron and espresso. Muscular and sturdy, it puts the fruit of a top-notch vintage into play with the condensed power of a cellar-worthy wine. Enjoy after 2020.

WillaKenzie Estate 2012 Kiana Pinot Noir (Yamhill-Carlton District)

A light, pretty rose color, this comes out with a burst of raspberries and roses, highlighted with a lick of chocolate. The back end shows some phenolic punch, putting a tight wrap on an elegant wine with the ability to improve through 2020 at least.

WillaKenzie Estate 2012 Estate Grown Pinot Blanc (Yamhill-Carlton District)

Rich and floral, this top-notch Pinot Blanc hits the palate with verve and ripe, complex fruit flavors. There’s a streak of delicious vanilla under the honeydew and Meyer lemon richness, and the length and power are especially impressive for a Pinot Blanc.

WillaKenzie Estate 2001 Pinot Gris (Oregon)

I don’t know anyone making better Pinot Gris in Oregon than this premiere property. Rich, ripe, round and sensuous, this lush and textured wine unwraps its ripe fruit in layers of pear/apricot flavor, enhanced with bright spice and finished with flavors of vanilla cream.

WillaKenzie Estate 2012 Aliette Pinot Noir (Yamhill-Carlton District)

This selection is from the winery’s first planted vineyard, now nearing 20 years of age. It’s all Pommard clone, offering a burst of pretty cherry fruit backed with stiff tannins and a streak of iron. Still showing some sharp edges, it’s just out of 15 months in 50% new oak, and will benefit from aerating or further…

WillaKenzie Estate 2012 Pierre Léon Pinot Noir (Yamhill-Carlton District)

Built with a mix of clones from the estate vineyards, this tart, tight, still young and stiff wine delivers black fruits cloaked in pepper, espresso and dark chocolate. At this age it opens rather grudgingly, and will reward your patience. Decant or tuck it away for a few years.

WillaKenzie Estate 2011 Clos Marco Chardonnay (Willamette Valley)

Clos Marco pays tribute to the late, much-loved winery dog, and a lovely memorial bottle it is. All stainless-fermented and aged, it’s loaded with tangy apple fruit and vivid acidity. Pineapple and citrus fruit provide additional accents, with a bright, concentrated, lengthy finish. Put this one away for a few years…
