RATINGS

95Wine Spectator

Vibrant, focused and deliciously complex, offering raspberry, cherry, cinnamon, mocha and subtle sage notes rolling through the long and expressive finish.

93The Wine Advocate

The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, fine salinity and a gentle build to quite a convincing tea-leaf finish that is very classic in style.

92Wine Enthusiast

Dense, dark and spicy, this opens with a thicket of briar and bramble... wrapped around taut, compact black fruits. There is a hint of gun metal running through the palate, and as the wine warms and slowly opens...

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

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.
