Mushrooms and baking spices adorn an explosion of strawberry pastries. There's plenty of ripe cherry fruit also, and a long, polished, lip-licking finish.

93The Wine Advocate

...very sensual bouquet with ripe dark cherries, blueberry and blackcurrant aromas that are nicely subsumed with the new oak. The palate is fleshy on the entry with crisp acidity, fine tannin and a sense of finesse... There is a sense of completeness and harmony here...

93Vinous / IWC, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, allspice and candied rose, and smoky mineral, vanilla and succulent herbs emerge slowly. Lithe and alluringly sweet, offering intense raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and a hint of spicecake. Shows impressive energy and lift on a very long, incisive finish, which is shaped by silky, fine-grained tannins.



Adelsheim is one of Oregon’s most admired and established producers. It was founded in 1971 when David and Ginny Adelsheim bought property in the Willamette Valley. The young, idealistic couple had just returned from a summer in Europe, and were inspired by the wine they enjoyed there to try making their own. They planted Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling on 15 acres in 1972. Their first commercial vintage was the 1978 bottling. Today Adelsheim owns 223 vineyards acres on ten sites in the Willamette Valley and are business partners with Lynn and Jack Loacker. The Adelsheims and the Loackers own the estate together. Adelsheim still focuses on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.


United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Dundee Hills

Dundee Hills AVA is in Yamhill County, and it is entirely contained within the Willamette Valley AVA, Oregon’s best known appellation. Dundee Hills is about 30 miles southwest of Portland, and has 1,300 vineyard acres. It was awarded AVA status in 2004 and, like much of Oregon, is known for Pinot Noir. Several of Oregon’s 20th century wine pioneers established their vineyards and wineries in Dundee Hills, adding to its status as a region long-recognized for producing high quality, iconic Oregon wines. Eyrie Vineyards, Erath Winery and Sokol Blosser remain some of Oregon’s most celebrated producers, and all were founded in what is now Dundee Hills in the late 1960s and early 1970s.


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.
