Long, sustained, seamless quality to the finish. Drink over the next decade.

Pale to medium ruby, it has an open-knit nose of crushed blackberries, spiced cranberry sauce, forest floor, allspice, citrus peel and tree bark. It’s medium bodied with intense, spicy fruits, a grainy frame and seamless freshness, finishing very long. - EB

Not to overgeneralize, but many if not most Willamette Valley Pinots were significantly bigger, bolder and richer in 2016 than in 2017.

DDO's 2017s are one exception: just as good and in some instances even better this vintage. Ripe scents and flavors highlight blueberry compote, dappled with fresh herbs, notably rosemary and thyme. It's an elegant, nicely detailed wine, with the structure to improve over the next decade or longer. - PAUL GREGUTT

Sleek and elegantly complex, with detailed cherry, raspberry and green tea flavors that fan out and build richness on a long finish. Drink now through 2028. — T.F.
