92The Wine Advocate

...pretty scents of ripe red fruit and dried roses with gobs of underlying spice—orange peel, bitter root, tree bark, smoke and cola. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with black and red fruit character and loads of perfumed spices, framed with grainy tannins and great lifting freshness, finishing very long.

92Wine Spectator

Elegantly complex and quite pretty, with expressive cherry and strawberry flavors accented by dusky spice details and hints of forest floor, gliding toward refined tannins.

92Vinous / IWC

... Powerful blackberry, cherry cola, violet and smoky oak spices, along with a mineral nuance... Sweet and seamless in texture, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors sharpened by a peppery note that adds back-end spiciness...impressively long, juicy finish that features rounded tannins and a lingering dark berry liqueur note.

92Wine Enthusiast

Aromatic with suggestions of sandalwood and cherry tobacco, this builds upon juicy blackberry fruit and refreshing acidity...


United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Chehalem Mountains

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.
