Jezebel Oregon Pinot Noir 2017
The Story The Jezebel Oregon Pinot Noir 2017 is a blend of 52% Willamette Valley and 48% Southern Oregon grapes. There are 5 AVAs due south of Willamette Valley. While most of these areas tend to be warmer and dry, there are still plenty of cool locations to grow Pinot Noir. Jezebel is the 2nd label for Willful Wine Company, Pam Walden owner and winemaker. Her 2017 Jezebel Blanc Blend made Wine Enthusiasts Top 100 Wine Buys of 2017. The Jezebel Oregon Pinot Noir is fermented in small batches, using a large variety of yeasts. Each wine yeast has its own characteristics and flavors that it imparts into the wine. The technical notes do not mention oak barrels, but the small lot fermentation suggests that maybe neutral oak barrels were used. This is a drink-it-now Pinot Noir. Fruit-forward and easy to drink, but still very much a real Oregon Pinot Noir. At less than 2,500 cases produced, the Jezebel Pinot is as close to a boutique as you get for well under $20. I found it on sale for $15. The alcohol content is 13.5%. The Tasting Notes The color is a shiny, see-thru garnet red. The nose is black cherry, herbs, spice, crushed autumn leaves, pepper, and bread pudding. This is a light to medium Pinot, with excellent acidity, the first sip is very promising. It tastes of ripe, tart cherries, a slap of herbs, a dash of pepper spice, and a hint of vanilla. The mid-palate offers slightly sour cranberry, a brush of chocolate powder, orange zest, and light exotic spice. The acidity is solid and gives the flavors time to unfold. The finish is delicate and lengthy. The Summary The Jezebel is both an easy to drink, fruit forward Pinot and a real-deal example of Oregon Pinot Noir. Good job! Though not as ghostly and ethereal as the pricey Oregon Pinot Noir, it is a solid Pinot at a value price. At the moment, I think my favorite wines are Oregon Pinot Noirs. I am known to be subject to change, but the Jezebel Pinot Noir is drinking especially well for a sub $20 Oregon Pinot Noir.

Underwood Oregon Bubbly In A Can
The Podcast Story Quake and Dave drink canned wine, actually not just any can of wine, but Underwood Oregon Bubbly In A Can, "The Bubbles". The grapes come from 78% Willamette Valley and 22% Applegate Valley of Oregon. I imagine you have heard of the Willamette Valley, but the Applegate Valley is located inside the Rogue Valley AVA of southern Oregon (Willamette is the northern most AVA of Oregon). The blend is 40% Pinot Gris, 32% Pinot Noir, and 28% Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape, when one is produced in the French style its "Gris" and in the Italian style its "Grigio". When Bubbly is produced in the Traditional Method, such as Champagne is, the 2nd fermentation occurs in each and every bottle of wine. Since this is a can of Sparkling wine and a can and a bottle are 2 very different containers, The Bubbles is produced in the Charmat Method, the same production technique as Prosecco. This is a vintage dated Bubbly, 2018, you will not see it printed on the can. With canned wine the label needs to preprinted on the can and to get the best price on the cans Underwood buys them preprinted in bulk, so you need to check their website to find the current vintage. So, this is a rather unique take on Bubbly, Oregon, Pinot Gris, and a 12 oz can, so tune into Quake and Dave and find out what they think!
