RATINGS

95Vinous / IWC

...suave, intensely perfumed bouquet features tangerine, pear, iodine, buttered toast and fresh fig scents, and spicy ginger and floral notes... Penetrating, concentrated and focused on the palate...superb finishing energy and floral-tinged persistence.

94James Suckling

...very complex chardonnay with grapefruit pith and attractive, fresh white peaches, almonds and flinty, stony nuances, too...palate has a vibrant, lemon core with superbly fresh, taut and concentrated fruit presence.

93The Wine Advocate

...baked quince, ripe peaches, jasmine, oyster shell, dried hay and saline with notes of honey and hazelnuts...light to medium-bodied palate is rounded and blossoms slowly from mineral to honeyed fruits, finishing long, fresh and nuanced.

93Wine Enthusiast

Richly endowed with ripe fruit, it marries apples and tree fruits to flavors of lightly salted butter, toasted nuts and wet stone.

92Wine Spectator

...expressive apple, quince and stony mineral flavors that glide along the sleekly elegant finish.

REGION

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.

TYPE
