96James Suckling

This is really well structured for the vintage with dried strawberries, wet earth and dried-flower character. Full-bodied, chewy and very fine. Intense and long finish. A beauty.

94Wine Enthusiast

...wonderfully fruity entry bounces along, offering a punch bowl full of spicy cherries, with extensive highlights. Sniff and taste streaks of clove, coffee, fresh earth and mushroom—all clean and harmonious.

93Vinous / IWC

An exotic, highly perfumed bouquet evokes red berry preserves, cherry cola, incense, Asian spices and mocha, plus a smoky mineral overtone. Sappy, appealingly sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering intense, concentrated black raspberry, spicecake, vanilla and rose pastille flavors... The cola and floral qualities recur on a strikingly long, spice-accented finish, which is framed by velvety, well-knit tannins.


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.
