I see some familiar names... review time?

I'm just hanging out, really.

Got the 2007 4-Pack based on the description. Be interesting to hear from others as well.
I'm starting to really enjoy the Pinot's but my wife loves them and the description on those is exactly the style she likes.

I literally have 4 375s of PN and that's it. I could really use some, but I can't stand cheap PN (probably the worst cheap varietal). I need reviews, people!

I was looking for more good budget pinot as well. I only have 2 bottles in the cellar, 1 of which will be enjoyed with a roasted turkey this weekend.

Anyone tried the So Be It?

I purchased some of the plush a while back, and we just finished that last week. Unfortunately, I don't know how to talk about wine, other than to say that I liked rot. The flavor seemed complex, fruity... More layers than I normally taste. I'll have to check with HWMBO to see if we need more.

Much delayed edit: I just noticed that I said "I liked rot." I meant to say "I liked it." Sorry for the embarrassing typo.

I purchased (2) 2006 Expression Pinot Noir 44° Willakia from wine.woot in October and wish I'd maxed it out. They were terrific for $26 http://wine.woot.com/offers/expression-44-pinot-noir-2-3

These are '07's but the cellartracker notes on them all seem to be good

Roserock Vineyard https://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=953362

Zena Crown Vineyard https://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=1062827

Eola - Amity Hills https://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=1073457

However, the valuations on cellartracker for the bottles seem to be a little less than what wine.woot is selling them for, which means I typically don't pull the trigger.



EDIT: If I was guaranteed a Roserock for each pair, I'd be in for 2 but the fact that it's "random" is maddening

It's Plush Pinot noir Reserve form the Willamette Valley, Oregon!

Tasting wonderfully, and really starting to show bright fruity characters and earthy tones. 2010 will continue to develop and we can see that since the release.

Yum Yum Yum... If you don't drink Pinot noir, this is a great way to start, especially for under $25/bottle discounted from $50.

I bought the SoBeIt last time it was offered. I did not take detailed notes but if you are willing to wait until tomorrow ill go ahead and pop one and report back. I do remmber not thninking much of it at first (a bit to tart for me) and enjoyed the Swami pinot way more for the same price point. However, the second bottle grew on me and I recall enjoying it

Don't hesitate, and snatch this one up! One of my favorite wine.woots to date, I'm in for 3. And I hear this may be the last of the vintage, so get it while you can. I'm asking my friends to buy some, in order to prolong the enjoyment

Plush and Expression are both quite good; between the two I'd easily go with the Plush, it's some of the best PNW pinot I've had (especially for the price).

EDIT TO ADD: source on both is previous woot sales and living in oregon for eleven years...

Hello, We hope that you will truly enjoy our 07 Pinot Noirs

They are very true to the varietal and reflect our terroir very purely. You might be interested to know that we are SIP certified (Sustainable in Practice) and take our responsibility to both the environment and our vineyard staff very seriously.

Please enjoy and thank you! De Tierra Vineyards

Kyle (and everybody), the Expressions 44 is excellent. I had a heat damaged shipment back in the summer so I popped one while waiting for the replacement. It was delicious, notwithstanding the heat bruising. Well made, nice structure, decent complexity and definitely PN. If I was buying wine right now I'd get more of that.

2014: 28 bottles. Last wine.woot: Scott Harvey Red Re-Mix
2013: 66 bottles, 2012: 91 bottles, 2011: 92 bottles, 2010: 74 bottles, 2009: 30 bottles, 2008: 3 bottles My CT

I went through a six pack or so of the 2005 De Tierra Silacci and really enjoyed it, my only experience with the winery. Serious pinot on the red fruit side of the spectrum. I bought them shortly after release and drank the last one maybe six months ago and that last bottle was still drinking great, in fact probably drank the others too soon.

Found this review of '07 Silacci from International Wine Review:

93 points
This magnificent Pinot Noir is crafted with special fruit from
the Salacci Vineyard situated just north of the Santa Lucia
Highlands. Medium ruby in color, it offers aromas of dark
red cherry and cedar. Aged in 35% new oak, it is elegant
and refined on the palate with purity of fruit, good acidity,
fine tannins and a very long finish.

IWR also gave the regular bottling De Tierra 90 points.....

fwiw

Cheers!

Have had both the Plush and the So Be It....both are very good. The So Be It is a serious value play, great QPR. I posted my tasting notes on them on the original offering.

Some of my favourite PNs! The problem is that the white label sells in the market for $25 retail, while the others retail for more like $45+ so this is only a deal if you get both single-vineyard black labels. Not a great discount!

What's the style on the plush? It looks to be quite an "Easy" california, maybe RR-style, but not OTT black Cabernet-drinker's PN. Can you give us some more review as to its acidity, the colour of the fruit, length etc?
thanks!

What are the chances of black label versus white label in the random pack?

quality posts: 1 Private Messages itsernst

Also, of the four choices, which would fellow wootonians recommend? SWMBO is a huge Pinot fan, so if I screw this up it may be my last woot ever...kidding...but not really.

The Plush Piont has bright clean acidity, bright red fruits (velvety cherry), earthy tones and hints of spice (pepper). RR is safe but you'll definitely know its WV Oregon. The nose is rich, medium body and a solid finish.

You'll also pick up a little mushroom, we've been enjoying this wine with lamb and robust cheeses lately.

Ok, I tried asking support, but apparently there's nobody there, so I'll ask here: Anyone else in NJ try to buy this? The text says it will ship to me, but then I get a scary red message on the next page saying it won't...

edit: the Expression 44°, specifically.

Checking! Please hold.

Update: Sorry but NJ is not allowed for that sale. It was a last minute change that got made in one place but not the other. I apologize for the frustration.

No, it's not just for wine club members--at least, I'm not a wine club member. I had received a flyer in the mail last month for this and ordered 2 bottles of the Roserock and got them within 2 weeks on the East Coast. If you just e-mail or call Megan, I suspect you'll get the deal.

I am so glad I purchased the De Tierra PN when it was offered here. While I don't have a refined wine tasting vocabulary, I have to say this was the perfect purchase for me. I've had one of each bottle and both were great. The taste is full and smooth and is more or less exactly what I want in a wine. The description sounded like what I would like, and I would say it's true to the description.
