Résonance “Résonance Vineyard” Pinot Noir 2019

(Yamhill-Carlton, Willamette Valley, OR) $70

This is the most deeply seductive Pinot Noir I’ve tasted this year. The complex earthy/umami flavors pull you down into some primordial world of pure hedonism. The wine’s texture is silk draped over velvet.  And like many of the top Willamette Valley Pinots, the core of the wine is rich and spicy. Elegance abounds. Résonance is the Willamette Valley winery begun in 2013 by the Burgundy producer Maison Louis Jadot, a firm that has a long track record of beautiful Pinots. (Jadot was founded in 1859, the same year Oregon became a state). Is there something “Burgundian” about the style of Résonance? You be the judge. (13.5% abv)
