In November 2017, Doug Wilder of the Purely Domestic Wine Report spent a week in in Hillsboro, Oregon tasting and interviewing with select winemakers of the Willamette Valley. We are very pleased he gave our 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 90 points:
“The nose is a supple yet focused red cherry with notes of warm tangy cranberry. The palate is firm on entry with a silky core of moderately expressive cherry and strawberry. Admirable considering the production level here. Drink 2017 – 2028.” – Doug Wilder, PDWR
Following a twenty-year career as a specialty wine buyer at some of America’s most influential domestic retailers, Doug Wilder launched Purely Domestic Wine Report, the first independent wine review publication focused on producers in California, Oregon and Washington, exclusively.
