Chuck Hill - Wines Northwest

2008 Tyee Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir is reviewed by Chuck Hill for his Pinot Noir with Copper River Salmon tasting.  He writes, "Second-generation Tyee winemaker Merrilee Buchanan Benson crafted this reserve-style wine from grapes harvested from the oldest vines in the estate vineyard near Corvallis, Oregon.  Finding an excellent balance between power and elegance, the wine offers aromas of cherry, strawberry and cranberry with notes of earth and hints of smoky oak.  Flavors on the palate echo the nose with added notes of baking spices and black fruits.  Excellent aging potential and a great accompaniment to salmon."

The Wine Advocate

"Tyee 2008 Pinot Noir Estate Barrel Select offers up a pleasant perfume of earth/underbrush, cherry blossom, Asian spices, incense, strawberry, and cranberry. Medium-bodied, ripe, and spicy, it has good volume and concentration and a medium-long finish. Drink it over the next 6-8 years.  88 points." - The Wine Advocate Oct 2010

Chuck Hill with Wines Northwest recommends 2009 Tyee Estate Gewurztraminer.  He writes, "Located on the Buchanan Family's Century Farm near Corvallis, Oregon, Tyee Wine Cellars celebrated their 25th year in 2010.  Daughter Merrilee Buchanan Benson is the winemaker crafting Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir.  The 2009 Gewurztraminer shows aromas and flavors of light pear and peach with hints of vanilla and baking spice."

Prince of Pinot

Tyee 2006 Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir wins a place in the All-American PinotFile list of Value Priced Pinots.  These are the Prince of Pinots favorite wines of 2010.  He writes, "The All-Americans were selected not only for their fruity, flirty New World hedonism and description-defying sensuality, but for the emotion they illicit.  All the anointed wines were technically sound, but what separated the All-Americans was a powerful charisma."
