I couldn't help but thinking that if all of the countries touched by the 44 degree parallel north line were able to produce world class wine, we would all be paying much less for our Pinot's! Since that unfortunately isn't the case, have any of my fellow Wooters tasted this?

I bought this the last time it was offered. It is excellent, and I'm glad to have the chance to re-stock. Here's my tasting note:

Pop and pour. Translucent ruby. Earthy nose with a whiff of mushroom and forest floor. Smoke and pepper, austere dark fruit on the palate. Medium long finish with a surprising subtle bright note of sweetness as it fades. Very enjoyable. (later...) After an hour the wine opens up and shows more bright fruit and floral notes. Great stuff.

Thanks for the notes. Sounds pretty good. Ironically although I'm not much of a fan of mushrooms I love that flavor in a wine. Have really grown to enjoy the earthy, forest floor element as well.

Do you think this has some ageing potential or is it ready to drink now?

It's good now and should hold up for a few more years, but no need to wait.

The winemaker's website is down for "planned maintenance" while their product is on Woot! Sounds like a plan....or lack thereof.

If you like your Pinot on the earthier side this stuff is great. It's also got ageing potential, at least for a few more years. Plenty of acid in this one.

It's up:

http://www.expressionwine.com/product/2007-Expression-44-Pinot-Noir--Roserock-Vineyard

It's listed on the website at $65/bottle, so the deal is 58% off list pricing, though if you take into account woot's very reasonable shipping rate, you're very likely going to be saving more than 61%.

This is great stuff. 2007 was a good year for the Willamette Valley and these guys didn't spoil what nature presented them. I've purchased 7 bottles of this "ruby-red" ambrosia over the course of the last several years, and that on the budget of a starving grad student... so, if you're able, go for it.


*edit: Ah, I see that the $140 list price is MSRP, which includes shipping. I should have known it was foolish to think I might to pull a fast one on the woot gods ;)

Several times. For the price range it's one if the best you'll find coming out of oregon. I'd buy more (and still may) if I didn't have a bunch already. Highly recommended.

I would echo what's been said already.

More Burgundian certainly than most fruity Pinots from Sonoma coast, this wine is really quite good, and at this price an excellent value.

I couldn't make an educated guess as to aging potential, but the wine is in an excellent place right now.

With grilled salmon this wine sings!

Is it broke or just fractured?

Thanks for the info guys. You're making it hard to say no on this one. Pretty well stocked here otherwise I would have already pulled the trigger. On the topic of Sonoma wines - I recently found a producer of Chard and Pinot there that I really like. Anyone ever tried Marimar Estate? I am going to try to review their wines on my site at some point.

Enjoyed a bottle of Expression 44 Willakia 2006 enough from a previous offering to give this a whirl as well. 2007 Oregon Pinot not necessarily considered a great vintage by many, but they seem to be drinking well.

And for those interested in reviews, 90 points from Burghound: "The barest hint of secondary development is now in evidence on the fresh red berry fruit nose that is laced with hints of crushed herb and spice. There is good volume and better concentration than most ‘07s possess along with a seductive mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced and appealingly complex finish.."

2 things. One, Miramar makes some delicious, well-priced PN. Two, you can add your website to your signature under my account so you don't have to put it in every reply.

AM may be the only critic whose points I consider, if only a bit. He is a stingy critic and focused solely on Burg and only recently began getting into New World PN. His note, and score, tell me this is Burgundian to the core.

Remember xpPinot guy.
He was cool. To bad he he doesn't want to hang out with us any more. I guess once he got enough product out there he just lets it speak for itself. I would hope if they come in with anything new to us he would would make a reappearance.

Alan Meadows knows his Burgundy, that's for sure. If he gave it 90 points, I have to try it. I have never had such a young Pinot Noir, I thing the youngest Burgundy I have ever drunk was a late '70s Échezeaux. I also have heard a lot about Oregon Pinot but never tried any so this should be interesting and educational on several levels. The button was pushed.

My dogs like me, that is important.

I'd give him a bit of a break since it's Sunday. He got into some excellent discussion with us, iirc.

Bought 2 sets on an earlier woot....fantastic pinot! To me very Burgundian. Not quite Anderson Valley Golden Eye caliber, but for $27 a bottle, nothing I often see for sale near me comes close.

In for the max!

Enjoyed this Pinot. Bright cherry, light with some complexity. I'm interested to see what happens with a little more age.

Bought from Woot initially, then bought a half case from the winery with a deal they ran.

Had this at our school's crab feed a week or so ago - our table loved it.

Not much of a Pinot drinker, but thought I might give this one a try based in the comments and a great price! In for one set!

Waddams Threatens Fire, can't ship to NV? Since when? Under rules and restrictions, we Nevadans should be able to press the stupidly large yellow buy button!


"Thanks to stick-in-the-mud buzzkilling state legislators, wine may only be delivered to the following states:

Every winery needs to get a license for each state. They cost $$, take lots of paperwork, and can be a pain in the ass, depending on the state.
