96The Wine Advocate

...nose of crushed blueberries, red currant jelly and warm blackberries accented by peppercorn, dust, woodsmoke, rose petal and tangerine with an earthy, underbrush-like undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate is super intense and layered, finely grained and with lip-smacking freshness calling you in for another sip on the long, layered finish. Yes!

95James Suckling

There’s a dark-fruited edge here with a super fresh core that brings blackberries and dark cherries into unique focus. The palate has a very supple feel with fluidity and flesh and a wealth of darker fruit on offer.

93Wine Spectator

Precise and sleek, with a delicate, brooding core of complexity sealed in expressive black tea, stony mineral and savory cinnamon flavors.

93Vinous / IWC

Powerful red and blue fruit, potpourri and spicecake aromas show excellent clarity and pick up vanilla and star anise notes with air. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated boysenberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. The spicy note comes back strong on a long, subtly sweet finish framed by supple, polished tannins.

93Wine Enthusiast

This fruit-driven wine shows berry, cherry and plum tones, yet as the wine breathes, layers of barrel spice and ripe tannins build to a long finish.


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.
