New Walter Scott 2016s - Almost Gone!

These represent yet another excellent vintage and Ken, Erica and crew continue to deliver an impressive lineup of wines with a distinctive style, that also reflect the unique personality of each vineyard or blend. Word is out too, with impressive scores from critics and buyers rushing to snap the wines up. Here are a couple favorites - notes on the other spring releases are on the website at greatwinebuys.com.

Sojourner Pinot Noir 2016
$54.99 or $43.99 by the case

The 2015 really came on strong last year after some time in the bottle, and the 2016 showed nicely from the get-go when we tasted through the lineup. High-toned, gorgeous aromatics of rose, cherry blossom and Asian spice lead you to a complex range of fruit from dark cherry and red raspberry to medium red plum, all made more complex thanks to a briary savory streak and some light oak. With air, the texture turns silky and generous, yet it’s all muscle underneath with powerful structure, rounded tannins and a long long finish. This is turning into a special bottling and promises some big rewards with cellar time, but is fun to drink right now too. 

Cuvée Anne Chardonnay 2016
$39.99 or $31.99 by the case

As always this multi-vineyard reserve blend tastes like white Burgundy with it’s classic spicy floral nose, brisk lemon-ness, a hint of peach, mildly savory herbs and a nutty touch. There’s plenty of fruit but the flavors remain in perfect balance, complemented by mid-weight body, focused acidity and minerality that combine to deliver power with grace. It’s definitely addictive and is a touchstone Oregon Chardonnay that delivers the goods at a very fair price.
