Winemaker Notes

A bouquet of bright red fruit leaps from the glass with subtle floral tones of rose and honeysuckle adding complexity. Raspberry, cranberry and juicy red cherry flavors are followed by some pleasing minerality, earthiness and caramel. The palate impression is lifted and refreshing with clean acidity and well-integrated tannins balancing the ripe fruit. 2006 Aliette will certainly improve from 1 or 2 year of cellaring and age well for at least 8 to 10 years from its release date. This elegant pinot noir will complement a wide range of dishes including grilled salmon, roast chicken with a raspberry glaze, and grilled vegetables. We recommend that you open the wine an hour before serving.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Focused and broad, with generous cherry, tobacco and peppery toast flavors mingling well on the long, deftly balanced finish. Drink now through 2016. 793 cases made.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Like the Terres Basses, WillaKenzie's Aliette differed markedly from its typical profile in 2006. While generally one of the estate's more delicate wines, in 2006 it has a richness more reminiscent of the Russian River than the Willamette Valley. It leads with scents of wild raspberries, hints of cumin and ginger. The generous black cherry fruit is gripped by chewy, succulent tannins. For roast chicken.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a bouquet of toast, spice box, and dark fruits. On the palate it is ripe, friendly and flavorful with enough structure for balance. It is likely to evolve for 1-2 years, and will provide pleasure through 2018.

WillaKenzie Estate, Oregon
WillaKenzie Estate Winery Video

WillaKenzie Estate is located in Oregon's Willamette Valley on rolling hillsides in the Chehalem Mountains. The winery was named after the Willakenzie soil on which the vineyards are planted to convey the influence that the soil imparts on the wine's flavors and aromas. The vineyards are planted with grapes of the Pinot family, mostly new Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are cool climate grapes, which are particularly well adapted to Oregon.
