92Vinous / IWC

Ripe red berry, mocha and candied rose scents show impressive clarity and energy. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, offering juicy, mineral-tinged black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Closes with impressive length and alluring spiciness while fine-grained tannins add shape and gentle grip.

92James Suckling

An opulent pinot noir with plums, ginseng roots, hibiscus and cedar. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh and juicy finish.

United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Yamhill County

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.
