94Vinous / IWC

Intense raspberry, cherry preserve and floral pastille scents... Deep, palate-staining red and dark berry, vanilla and floral pastille flavors show excellent clarity and a bracing spine of smoky minerality. Expands steadily with air and picks up a smoky nuance that builds on a strikingly long, fruit-driven finish.

91Wine Enthusiast

Blackberry and black cherry fruit combine here, showing just a whiff of tomato leaf herbaceousness...scents of toasted walnuts, and there's a lightly herbal citrus note of lemon verbena.

16Jancis Robinson

Intense cherry fruit and a rocky minerality... Fresh acid, medium alcohol.


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.
