Youngberg Hill Pinot Noir J. Block Willamette Valley 2016
They say (scientists) we are all composed of atoms from virtually everything, everywhere, all through time. Stardust.* So we all have a micro-amount of Shakespeare, Elvis, Van Gogh and MCA from the Beastie Boys IN our corporeal bodies. And presumably….these grapes, too. So….best to drink this 95-POINT, 50% OFF, rippingly good pinot from the atom-smashingly fine 2016 Willamette vintage!! Youngberg is BACK - last time we sold out in hours!
Youngberg Hill started farming organically in 2003, have been practicing biodynamic farming since 2011, and dry farm, meaning no irrigation. 2016 is a spectacular vintage in Willamette Valley, and you’ll taste it right away. We quoted Jim Harrison last time, and we’ll do it again: “wine draws in the world that surrounds us…increases the best aspects of camaraderie and sweetens the tongue for conversation,” swinging your mood from gentle to gentler.” YES!
Did we mention 95 POINTS? We did? OK, then, let’s chat about how this wine SOAKS your mouth in deep dark cherries, sweet pomegranate, and awesome texture and completeness. Yeah, THAT. This is delicious, savory, ripe, drinking perfectly, and a staggering good value at $30. Do you know how many wines with 95 points cost $200?? We have just BARELY enough of this to send out an email...PLEASE jump QUICK if you love elegant, fine, lush, Willamette pinot like we do! Wow! While it lasts!
* We fully expect to get a witty dressing-us-down comment from an actual wine-loving scientist. Please!
Free ground shipping on 4 or more bottles.
“All the wonderfully fresh and attractive, red and dark cherries seen over the range of Youngberg Hill pinots, but this has an additional layer of depth and complexity. The palate has textural layering and delivers a very striking, fresh and long finish. Great pinot here. Drink or hold. Screw cap.”
Swirl your glass for the dark pepper, forest floor, and mushroom aromatics. Plump blackberry, blueberry, and plum characteristics dance onto your palate, followed by cocoa in the mid-palate, and long finish of cherry cola. Typical of the J-Block, the 2016 has more tannin structure with depth and complexity. An absolute delight to be enjoyed today or cellared for many years to come.
