Buy WillaKenzie Estate Pinot Noir Emery
Wine Spectator 88 points - From an east-facing slope that rises up to 700 feet and is planted with a mixture of locally traditional vine selections plus some Dijon 777, the WillaKenzie 2009 Pinot Noir Emery spent 15 months in 60% new barrels. Toasty and caramelized resin notes from barrel begin to gain prominence here, whether or not thatís on account of their sheer (hardly extreme) percentage vis-a-vis other wines in this collection. Though there is an ample supply of juicy if jellied red raspberry and cherry on the mid-palate, a faintly drying note in the finish leaves me feeling cheated of the sort of sap and savory that characterized the numerous more successful wines in the present collection. Iíd like to revisit this, but I donít think itís a case of its having had a bad day when I visited. In any event, one should probably enjoy it for its sweetness of fruit over the next 3-4 years. ”

2009 WILLAKENZIE PINOT NOIR EMERY

"There is good freshness to the attractively layered aromas of briar, plum and dark berries. The palate impression of the medium weight flavors mirrors that of the nose as there is good vibrancy and precision to the balanced, pure, dusty, sappy and lingering finish. This understated effort should amply reward mid-term cellaring." Burghound.com 91 points Drink 2013-2019

Producer
WillaKenzie Estate is located in Oregon's Willamette Valley on rolling hillsides in the Chehalem Mountains. The winery was named after the Willakenzie soil on which the vineyards are planted to convey the influence that the soil imparts on the wine's flavors and aromas. The vineyards are planted with grapes of the Pinot family, mostly new Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are cool climate grapes, which are particularly well adapted to Oregon. The Willamette Valley is situated around the 45th parallel, which is the same latitude as Burgundy, sharing many similar climatic conditions with that region.
