94Vinous / IWC

Deep-pitched, smoke-accented red and dark berry, vanilla, floral pastille and mocha scents are energized by a potent mineral topnote...impressive clarity to the sweet black raspberry, cherry cola and spicecake flavors, which spread out slowly on the back half. Shows serious power and dark berry thrust on a very long, smooth finish...

94Wine Enthusiast

...enwraps its bold red fruit in delicious barrel toast and spices. The acids remain unobtrusive yet provide impeccable balance, and the tannins are ripe and polished, redolent of black olive and breakfast tea...finishing with a lovely streak of root beer.

93+ The Wine Advocate

...nose of black cherries, currants and licorice plus touches of crushed blueberries, oolong tea leaves and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it's packed with warm black fruits segueing into nutmeg and cardamom spice, with a good frame of grainy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long and minerally.

92Wine Spectator

Well-structured and sleek, combining a core of vibrant acidity and tannins with refined cherry, orange zest and crushed stone accents.


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.
