95Vinous / IWC

...expansive, finely etched bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, incense, potpourri and exotic spices, along with suggestions of cola and smoky minerals...juicy, intense raspberry, cherry, boysenberry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors. The berry and floral qualities carry strongly through a strikingly long, sweet, subtly tannic finish that leaves building mineral and spice notes behind, eventually.

94Wine Enthusiast

It's an all-senses potpourri with aromas of berry, sassafras and cinnamon, plus ripe fruit flavors of strawberry, marionberry and plum. More highlights continue with sassafras, coffee and baking spices. It's a riot of mixed and delicious components, beautifully balanced, and showing exceptional length and detail.

93The Wine Advocate

...tarry/scorched earth aromas, unwinding slowly to red and black cherries and sweet red berry fruits with nuances of violets and amaro. The light to medium-bodied palate is firm, grainy and fresh with a long, flavorful finish.

93Wine Spectator

Graceful and nuanced, with lovely aromas of violet and raspberry, leading to elegant tiers of cherry and spice that gather tension toward fine-grained tannins.

93James Suckling

This offers plenty of meaty spices and dark cherries that follow through to the palate in deliciously juicy, fully expressive mode. The tannins are sweeping and fall neatly around the long, expressive 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.
