94James Suckling

Dense and rich wine with real brightness. Wet-earth and mushroom character highlights hints of strawberries and plums. Full body, velvety tannins and a fruity finish.

92Vinous / IWC

Highly aromatic aromas of ripe red fruits, incense and vanilla, along with a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy and plush on the palate, offering sweet raspberry preserve, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors that take a darker turn to blackberry and spread out with air. Shows impressive power as well as energy, finishing with building tannins and resonating cherry and smoke notes.


United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley

Willamette Valley AVA was established in 1983, and it is the oldest appellation in Oregon. Oregon’s modern wine industry began in the Willamette Valley in the 1960s when artists, vagabond winemakers, and U.C. Davis oenology graduates looking for new territory started their own, small, off-the-grid wineries. The appellation is the state’s largest, and it extends 175 miles from Columbia River on the Washington/Oregon border to just south of Eugene, near central Oregon. The Willamette River runs through the area, helping to give the appellation a mild year-round climate. There are six smaller sub-appellations within this AVA, but altogether the Willamette Valley has the largest concentration of wineries in Oregon, as well as the majority of the state’s most famous producers. Pinot Noir is king here, followed by Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling. To most admirers of Oregon Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley offers the most distinctive wine choices in the state.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
