91Wine Enthusiast

...serious effort, juicy and concentrated, it opens with lovely scents of Pinot cherry-berry and plum fruit, layered with earth, wood, leaf, spice and plenty of tart fruit.

90Wine Spectator

Firm and flavorful. A juicy mouthful of cherry, red berry, olive and dusky spice flavors, persisting nicely on the chewy finish.

90Vinous / IWC

Serious red berry, smoked meat and game aromas, with a hint of tobacco. Supple, broad, dry and sophisticated, with flavors of spicy dark berries, bacon fat, tobacco and pepper. Finishes with strong, ripe berry and smoked meat notes.


United States, Oregon

Oregon is the fourth largest producer of wine in the U.S., after California, which produces nearly 90% of all wine made in the U.S., Washington State and New York State. Though winemaking in Oregon started in the 1850s, thanks in part to several German immigrants who planted German wine grapes, as in other American wine regions the Oregon industry folded in the beginning of the 20th century during Prohibition. Starting in the early 1960s modern winemaking pioneers planted vineyards in south central Oregon and the more northern Willamette Valley. Pinot Noir did well in the cool microclimates of Oregon, and by the late 1960s the state was already earning a reputation for its artisanal Pinot Noirs. By the 1970s innovative Oregon viticulturalists were traveling to Burgundy for Pinot Noir clones, and to Alsace for Pinot Blanc clones. Today the state has about 20,000 acres planted to wine grapes and more than 400 wineries. Pinot Noir remains the state’s most celebrated wine, followed by Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris. The Willamette Valley just south of Portland is Oregon’s most acclaimed wine producing region.


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.
