97James Suckling

...beautifully rich array of dark, ripe cherries with a sense of depth and incredible plushness...palate texture is one of really fine detail at the surface with such deep flesh and weight at the core... There's seamlessness and richness... So intense and so long.

96The Wine Advocate

...scents of blackcurrants and blackberries accented by bay leaf, fir, underbrush, wilted violets, citrus peel and potpourri notes...medium-bodied palate is elegant but powerful with a firm, grainy frame and lip-smacking freshness...finishing unbelievably long and very layered. This is gorgeous.

96Wine Enthusiast

Black cherry, fig, cassis and a touch of raisin combine to create a rich and complex base...streaks of licorice, smoke, char and espresso, all seamlessly integrated in a wine with awesome power and length.

95Vinous / IWC

...highly perfumed black raspberry, cherry cola, vanilla, spicecake and incense aromas carry a powerful floral overtone. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, offering powerful red and blue fruit preserve, rose pastille and five-spice powder flavors... Finishes on a suave floral note, with powerful thrust, lingering smokiness and sneaky tannins that merge smoothly into the lush fruit.


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.
