WillaKenzie Estate:
Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines. In 2000, an additional 95 acres of land, this time in the Dundee Hills, was obtained, and it was named the Jory Hills vineyard after the Jory soil type. ... Read more
Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines. In 2000, an additional 95 acres of land, this time in the Dundee Hills, was obtained, and it was named the Jory Hills vineyard after the Jory soil type. In total, there are about 105 acres under vine at the original Yamhill location, with another 25 acres at the Jory Hills vineyard. Two thirds of the grapes planted at the original vineyard are Pinot Noir, while the remainder is other Pinot grapes, along with Chardonnay. Willakenzie’s winery was built in 1995, right as their first harvest was coming to a close. Today, about 20,000 cases of wine are produced annually, thanks to the hard work of winemaker Thibaud Mandet. Read less

This is nicely herbal and leafy on the nose with quartzy mineral edges to the white fruit that shows a hint of Ranier cherry. In the mouth this is surprisingly fruity with an almost tropical kiwi/guava thing going on but the acid/fruit balance it near perfect lending this a really precise feel on the mid-palate. the fruit turns more pear tones in the mouth and while there is a touch of residual sugar here lending roundness there as a touch of bitter melon that helps to counter the sweetness and creates a seamless complex whole, particularly on the long, engaging finish. 91pts

The Willakenzie winery (named after the soil in which the vines are planted) is known for its Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs. Red and black fruit flavors, with bright acidity and hints of baking spices, are all in attendance here; floral aromas waft from the glass. Overall, this is a delicious Oregon Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.
