Walter Scott 2017s Are Here
Hearing Ken Pahlow talk about his 2017s is an impressive master class in the many minute decisions he makes, balanced by the humble recognition that he’s fortunate to get fruit from some of the Valley’s best vineyards. His thoughtfulness is exhilarating, yet is merely a guiding hand in successfully allowing the personality of each vineyard to shine. Here are three favorites, many others to explore mentioned below.
Sojourner Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hill 2017
$54.99 or $43.99 by the case
A lovely and seductive expression of Ken’s winemaking and the Eola-Amity AVA, this offers high-toned aromatics of rosy bramble and Asian spice while nuggets of red berry and black cherry roll about the layered palate. Supple yet powerful, polished yet intense and minerally, this drinks well now but will age gracefully.
Sequitur Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge 2017
$54.99 or $43.99 by the case — LIMITED
Perched near the top of Ribbon Ridge right next to Beaux Frères’ Upper Terrace, Sequitur has over fifteen clones carefully selected, planted and farmed by Mike Etzel. Some of the most exciting fruit in the Valley, Ken makes it shine. Savory spice, punchy summer red fruits and a complex, serious finish.
Cuvée Anne Chardonnay Willamette Valley 2017
$39.99 or $31.99 by the case
A stunning white Burgundy look-alike that takes the detailed nuance of the single vineyards, mixes them together and presents itself as a delicious icon of thoughtful blending. While the single vineyards clearly convey their individual terroirs, this offers a balanced of complexity and drinkability; of fruit, acidity and minerality; of power and grace. Cool stone and citrus aromatics lead to a pulsing green freshness on the palate, a ricochet of flavors that linger on the long yet crisp finish.
